Ozzie - what you described sounds like a dead battery. The clicking is likely the solenoid inside the starter motor, trying to engage the flywheel. While the battery may still be capable of generating enough power to run your lights etc, it may not have enough left to turn the engine over.
Do you have access to a volt meter? If so, check the voltage across the battery terminals. It should be more than 12 volts DC with everything turned off.
Then, have someone crank the engine over and if the battery voltage drops below 10 volts DC, the battery is junk.
