Merricks General Store

Old Merricks General Store has been transformed into Merricks General Wine Store.
Once it was a multi-purpose rural pitstop on the eastern side of the peninsula, but when Balnarring shopping centre evolved just down the road, it fell into disrepair.
Then in 2005, the store was restored as a cellar door and cafe.

Winds of change blowing
Once the hub of daily life
Now a luxury

This is the view from the store of Westernport Bay
