Silo Art Trail

Follow the Silo Art Trail

The North East Silo Art Trail is currently one of the most popular drive tours in the Sun Country on the Murray and Benalla regions. Spend a day stopping in at quaint country villages, grab a coffee or a counter meal at one the hotels. Take some pictures and share with your friends and family these larger than life astonishing artworks.

Not all the artworks are on silos, dotted through the regions are other murals like the Gooroombat church painting 'Sophia'. And the Winton Wonderland Water Tank. For a painting with a difference, check out the 3D Floor Mural at the Barmah Forest Heritage and Education Centre in Nathalia.

The Goorambat community is very proud to have Jimmy Dvate’s artwork adorn the silos.

SOPHIA OF GOORAMBAT

‘SOPHIA’ OF GOORAMBAT

‘Sophia’ came into being during the 2017 Wall to Wall Festival.

Artist Adnate created this stunning mural to depict the female aspect of the Holy Spirit.

Sophia by nature is wise, nurturing, comforting, inspirational and ever present.

Devenish Silo

DEVENISH SILO

This artwork, by artist Cam Scale, is a tribute to the men and women of the Devenish community who have enlisted in military service.

The GrainCorp Devenish silos have long been a symbol of the prosperity of local grain production.

That they now depict an aspect of military service provided by the community is a fitting link between the two.

St James Silos

ST JAMES SILO

Painted by artist Tim Bowtell, the silos depict a mural of Sir George Coles, the founder of Coles supermarkets who was a local to the St James township.

The silo bunkers at St James were built in 1943, with bushels of wheat originally delivered to the site via horse and cart; a motif that is displayed in the artwork.
