The Ku-ring-gai Historical Society & Hornsby and Districts Amateur Radio Clubs are celebrating the 100th Centenary (1918 - 2018) of the first direct wireless message from United Kingdom to Australia

This celebration will happen on Saturday 22 September 2018 from 11:00am to 4:00pm on Cleveland and Stuart Streets, Wahroonga, New South Wales.

local Councillors, residents, the Ku-ring-gai Male Choir, wireless enthusiasts and historians.
