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. Access can be seasonal as the roads are prone to flooding in the wet.
There is a short 800 metre walk through the remaining foundations of the buildings that housed the station workers. Along this walk there are informational signs that detail the history of the area as well as features and plants in the landscape.
