Mount Wycheproof is a hill located in the small town of Wycheproof, Victoria, Australia which stands at 43m above the surrounding terrain The township of Wycheproof is located on the hillside, and a unique geological substance known as Wycheproofite is exclusive to the local area.
The township of Wycheproof is located on the hill's south western slopes The settlement was started as early as 1846, but the township was not surveyed until 1875. The name 'Wycheproof' originates from the local Aboriginal language, 'wichi-poorp', meaning 'grass on a hill'. The hill plays a role in the local community, with annual races to the hilltop. There are many walking tracks in the area, and local wildlife such as emus and kangaroos can be seen.
Mount Wycheproof is a granite outcrop. Located in a flat grassland area, the rounded terrain of Mount Wycheproof is consistent with that of the surrounding area. Sharing several similarities to nearby Pyramid Hill, Mount Wycheproof is part of the low-lying Terrick Terrick range. The hill rises to a height of 148m above sea level or only 43m above the surrounding plains, The hill is characterised by a rocky, conical peak, common in the western areas of Victoria. Phosphate materials are relatively rare in Victoria, yet the Wycheproof area is known to have its own unique mineral, known as Wycheproofite. Wycheproofite can be characterised by its pinkish colour and its transparency.

  • i loved looking at dirt and maybe some grass but honestly 5/5 because i have nothing to do with my life
  • While large hills are generally my preference, there is something charming about this pathetically tiny hill. Nothing is comparable to the little hill that could.
