“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta
Billed as Australia’s largest outdoor art gallery the Silo Art Trail sees disused grain silos rediscovered through a series of towering portraits that form a tour with a difference. This 5 day tour will take us up the Hume Highway to Benalla where we will head north viewing the silos at Devenish, St James, Goorambat, Tungamah, and Rochester. Enjoying a couple of days away from the silos in Swan Hill we then head west to the silo at Patchewollock before heading south and seeing the silos at Lascelles, Brim, Roseberry, Sheep Hills and Rupanyup. Our art tour doesn’t just include these amazing silos, we will also visit the legendary Spanner Man and be in awe of what one man can do with his imagination and a lot of old spanners. With lots more to see than just the silos this truly will be a most memorable trip.
