Wickliffe

Wickliffe is a beautiful town in Victoria; home to a small township of families and farmers, as well as many new residents who have moved in search of more affordable housing combined with a laid-back lifestyle.

The town’s history dates back to 1840 when the first pastoral run, known as Narrapumelap, was taken up by a man named John Dixon Wyselaskie.

Three years later, an Irishman opened an inn, though by 1850 it was recognised as the Wickliffe Government Township. A few years later, a school was established followed by a Presbyterian church.

Most of the town remained pastoral in nature, and after World War II, a portion of the Narrupumelap land was converted into soldier-settler farms. Today, some of the historical attractions that remain in Wickliffe include the Wickliffe Anglican Church and the War Memorial.

If you are looking for a place to stay, there is some accommodation available over in Lake Bolac.
