Wycliffe Well - Cities, Towns and Localities
Wycliffe Well is one of those quirky iconic places in Australia, that has become legendary as a place to stop. Known as the “UFO Capital of Australia”, it is said that sightings are so common at Wycliffe Well that you would have to be unlucky not to see anything, as opposed to lucky to have seen something.

A roadhouse stop along the Stuart Highway between Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, Wycliffe Well was first established in the 1860s as the main watering hole for the stock route and later the telegraph line.

Today, visitors can stop, fill up with fuel and food. For those wanting to stay, there is range of accommodation options from self-contained to camping. You can relax and enjoy the great selection of beers, whilst searching the night sky for UFOs. Whose knows... the more beer you have the more likely you might see something strange.
