A visit to our cottage will also enable you to see the oldest wisteria tree in Australia (165 years old).

 

During 2004,the museum received an update with new shelving, display cases, lighting and signage. This fit-out has been made possible by a generous grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund.

 

The Management Committee and all the Volunteers of City Park Radio gratefully acknowledge this valuable assistance.

 

The articles on display have been donated or provided on-loan by various benefactors to whom we are also very grateful.

    Hi,
    I thoroughly enjoyed visiting your radio station and museum. I remembered seeing some enormous record disks. What size are they, what was the playing time and what was the rotation speed?

    I am putting together a presentation on my trip to Tasmania and would appreciate this information to add interest to the talk.
    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Mike Pearce.
