Walking and Visualising the Old ABC Studios at Gore Hill

A guided walking tour that will visit the ' vanished site' but 'vibrant memories' of the old ABC television studios at Gore Hill.

For over 40 years Gore Hill was the site of the ABC Broadcasting studio at Gore Hill from 1956-2002.

Gore Hill’s high elevation made it ideal for the ABC’s main transmission tower. Opened by then Prime Minister Robert Menzies, it hosted the country’s first television studio.

Now a vanished site – with its public assets sold off, then demolished and replaced.

Yet the site’s stories, memories and legacies linger. A place that was once filled with creativity and a determination to inform, educate, entertain and make a difference.
