About this place
In 1914 the Wyndham Wireless Station was built on top of Telegraph Hill. It was operational until 1921 and assisted ships entering Wyndham Port. There are remains of the buildings that were used to house the people that operated the station. One of these buildings when it was closed was moved to Wyndham and is now a guest house.
The view at the top of Telegraph Hill shows a 360 degree view of the surrounding area, including part of the Ord River floodplain and Parry's Creek.
There is a short 800m walk through the remaining foundations of the buildings that housed the station workers. Along this walk there are information signs that detail the history of the area as well as features and plants in the landscape.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
Crocs are common, crocs move around and crocs are deadly so Be Crocwise. Download the Crocodile safety and myth busting fact sheet.
Pay attention to all warning signs, however just because a sign isn’t there doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers or pools and contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
