Information

United Wycliffe Well, Holiday Park Roadhouse is a one-stop, must-stop location along the Stuart Highway.

Wycliffe Well began as a watering point along the stock route for the Overland Telegraph Line in the 1860s. World War II saw Wycliffe Well become a market garden centre to service troops, and at the end of the war, two soldiers stayed on to continue selling vegetables and garden products to Alice Springs. In 1960, a petrol pump was installed in Wycliffe Well.

Nowadays the facilities here encompass a roadhouse, motel, caravan park and an array of whimsical Australiana & alien themed installations. Leu Farkas has spent almost 3 million dollars renovating and expanding Wycliffe Well to make it much more than just a roadhouse, more like a family leisure park. For instance; there is the Barramundi pond, a train track complete with a train that resembles Puffing Billy, a lookout tower for spotting UFOs, an Incredible Hulk style letter box which won the Burke's Backyard letter box competition, the Phantom to show you the way to the toilet and an open air auditorium designed to fit 300 people. There are kangaroos, emus, peacocks, murals on every wall you can see, over 30 caravan sites, furnished rooms and a lake which when finished will be used for canoeing and boating and of course, the UFO sightings. Wycliffe Well is known as the UFO capital of the NT.
Wycliffe Well is essentially made up of Wycliffe Well Holiday Park out the back and the Roadhouse (with pub boasting the largest range of beer in the NT, and United fuel) at the front.
