Wycliffe Well, NT

Wycliffe Well, in the Northern Territory is a Roadhouse in the tiny Settlement in the Barkly Tableland and is a stop-over for many who travel the Stuart Highway.
Wycliffe Well is between Tennant Creek and Alice Springs in the NT.

There are only a few permanent people that live there, travellers can't miss the building when driving on the Stuart Highway.  There is accommodation, a small restaurant, take-a-way food, a few other items to be purchased along with Fuel for the vehicles if needed. 

Wycliffe Well is a self-proclaimed UFO Capital of Australia.  Apparently UFO sightings are common. There are newspaper clippings and images to persuade skeptic visitors.

The photos were taken of what greets you.

  1. So much fun--- It reminds me of things I used to see in the 1950's when we'd be traveling in California or Nevada. Thanks for stopping by my site, and my compliments on your wonderful images.

  3. Not what you would expect to find in such a remote place. I am sure it is a must stop place if there are children travelling with you.

  5. The good residents of Wycliffe Well may have had too much of the touch of sun
    on these "alien" appearances.
    There is a saying in the far north - "He/She has gone Troppo".

    Anyhow if it gets the tourists to stop, then that is great for this little town.
    Good on 'em and their "alien" mates.
    Cheers
    Colin

  7. Did you pop your heads through the alien figures and have your photos taken?

  8. Oh, now that is not what I was expecting. But, now that the name Wycliffe resonates in my brain a little though, it does start to bring back a few UFO/ alien abduction stories.

    1. They sure do, and if one of the staff has the gift of the gab, it's a good story :)
