WICKLIFFE

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.

The United Church, previously Presbyterian is a really significant structure. Approaching 150 years old and located ‘high’ on the hill gives this church a grand and impressive presence. Check those Gargoyles.

The Wickliffe War Memorial would outdo many a town with a reasonable population. One must take a few moments to work out how such significant War Memorial has its genesis. Quite amazing.

Wickliffe could easily be a drive through town, but the traveler is urged to take in what is in this very small town
