Wickliffe is encounted on the Ballarat to Hamilton Hgy. Wickliffe also meets the required synopsis criteria. In fact the pub, the church and the War Memorial, plus a few houses make up this small community.
Wickliffe Post Office opened around January 1854 and closed in 1988.
The traveller will understand that a pub is built to serve what may be a wide customer base. Those customers then sustain the viability of the hotel. The Wickliffe Hotel is a nice looking pub and if the timing is right a stop off may be a consideration.
