Wickham is the pedestrian catchment of the rail station and the West End.
Its identity is influenced by the railway which acts as a physical barrier to the city.
Maryville is somewhat separated from Wickham by the oil depot sites and large warehouses along and off Railway Street, and has a close relationship with adjoining Islington and nearby Hamilton.
Both suburbs are close to the Honeysuckle redevelopments and the fishing fleet wharves.
Significant features include: Wickham Station, the 'Tree of Knowledge', Throsby Creek, School of Arts, the historic Wickham Primary and Infrants School, Wickham Park, Annie Street woolstore buildings and the Lass O'Gowrie and Albion Hotels.
