The City Park Radio Museum is located at the front entrance of the City Park Cottage, just inside the main gate of City Park on Tamar Street.
The Cottage is over 100 years old, and was originally the Park Caretakers Cottage.
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.

In 2018, further renovations were possible with another grant from the Tasmanian State Government.

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.
