WYCHEPROOF

Wycheproof is a small town, when heading west on Boort towards and beyond Birchip Wycheproof. Visitors will find the town is a very friendly place and has some really nice attributes to keep the visitor in town.

This incredibly difficult name originates from an aboriginal word meaning 'grass on a hill', referring to Mount Wycheproof, which is the smallest registered mountain in the world, and standing at 148 metres (486 ft)? All visitors are invited to climb this Mtn.

The economy of Wycheproof is driven mainly by wheat. The town is unusual in that even today the railway line runs in the centre of the main street.

The Wycheproof Museum is located on the southern edge of the town. The Museum gives a good insight into the past of the region.

At the Memorial Park where the War Memorial is very tastefully acknowledged, there are the details of Bernard Bunty and his 146 uninterrupted successful boomerang catches.

There are two active hotels in Wycheproof. All old and classic Victorian.

The churches in Wycheproof are a mix of the old and the disappointing.

Wycheproof is an interesting town; the museum determines a few an hours at a minimum should be considered.
