One of the must-see attractions in Wilcannia is the Wilcannia River Radio Station. Located in Reid Street, the Station is considered the “heart of the community”. Broadcasters love interviewing travellers and are proud to show them around their Station.
All DJs who work at 103.1FM are Indigenous locals who operate under the guidance of Murdi Paaki Regional Enterprise Corporation Ltd.
The Station logo translates to ‘community of all ages’. The river is represented by the different coloured dots flowing out of the C’s which signify the Elders, Community and Youth, each replicated by the size of the dots.
Being an isolated community, the broadcasters thrive on interaction with visitors. So make sure you stop into the Radio Station on your next visit through Wilcannia.
