Nhill Aeradio Station building as it was in 1979.
Nhill’s Aeradio Station is today probably known by most local people as the Apex Clubrooms on the western boundary of the Aerodrome. In fact, the adoption of the building by the Nhill Apex Club was critical in preventing its likely demolition after the closure of the Aeradio facility in 1971.
When a new VHF communication network at Mt William in the Grampians rendered it obsolete and the station was decommissioned.
The building survives today in remarkably original condition, and current work is being undertaken by the Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre group to restore the Aeradio Building and interpret its story as part of a local aviation museum.
