One of the concrete igloos from 144 Radar Station RAAF (Cannington) can be see in the grounds of the Whaleback Golf Course, located just near the corner of High Rd and Nicholson Rd in the suburb of Lynwood, Western Australia. The igloo is now used by the Maddington Scout Group.

The Radar Station was operated by 144 Radar unit at this site from 1943 to 1945.
