Wycheproof, a rural town on the Calder Highway, is 120 km north-west of Bendigo. It was named after the Wycheproof pastoral run (also known as the Avoca pastoral run) taken up in 1846. The name is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal word meaning rushes or grass on a hilltop. Mount Wycheproof, 43 metres from base to summit, is 800 metres east of the township’s main street.
