Wycheproof is an unusual town with a very wide main street – known to the locals as Broadway – and a huge grain silo. It is a service town for the surrounding cereal growing properties and is famous because Mount Wycheproof, which rises only 43 metres above the surrounding countryside, is the smallest registered mountain in Australia. It has pleasant views over the town and the surrounding plains.
Centenary Park on the Broadway (Calder Highway) is worth visiting as it has a number of boards explaining the history of the area with some good photographs.
Wycheproof doesn’t appear to have a lot of significant historic buildings until the visitor arrives at the corner of Broadway and O’Connor streets where the town’s post office (1889) and old courthouse (also 1889) stand out. The courthouse was constructed in a Classical Revival design with cream brick detailing on a red-brick, gabled facade. It is the town’s most distinctive building.
