Vision’s radio station in Nannup, Western Australia,  went to air on the 3rd of May, 2023. This is Vision’s 61st radio station out of the 100 stations 2021-2023 project and the 800th station overall.

Nannup is located 267 km south of Perth via Bunbury and Busselton. It has a population of 1538, according to the 2021 census. The word ‘Nannup’ comes from the Noongar people and means ‘stopping place’. The Shire of Nannup was founded in 1834, although prior to European settlement, the Wardandi, Bibbulmun, Nyungar, and other indigenous people occupied the territory.

For those who are keen hikers, there are multiple walking trails in the district such as Munda Biddi Trail, Timberline Trail, and the Kondil Park Wildflower Trail.

Accommodation ranges from bed and breakfast, farm stays or camping. There’s plenty to see and do, such as taking a swim in Barrabup Pool, a natural freshwater pool in St John Brook Conservation Park. Explore the markets, galleries, or other shops. For the energetic, there are world-class mountain biking trails.

So, whether you’re a local or visiting, you can now tune in to 87.6 FM and be blessed by God’s Word being spread through Vision Radio and the supporters who made it possible. It might just change your life!

The cost of establishing a new transmission site depends on the output power and unique site requirements.

Low power licences (ideal in a small country town, for example) typically cost less than $10,000 to establish. This includes the satellite receiving and FM retransmission equipment, the cost of the licence itself, basic local marketing, and program supply via satellite for the first year.

High-power licences and transmission sites are more expensive (but they do have much greater reach).
