Township of Merricks

This peaceful district centre is one of the Peninsula’s oldest farming areas, but now also enjoys fame as a wine growing centre. Such was the fear of invasion along the nearby coastline during WW2 that Merricks enjoyed brief status as a supply depot for the army.

Since 1927 the rustic general store has been the nucleus of local life, even though the township is now dominated by the imposing Daryl Jackson designed building of Stoniers Winery.
