Ever wanted to couple the idea of checking out great art, but also not having to go inside? Well, we have just the spot for you.

If you’re not acquainted with the Silo Art Trail it’s time to get yourself extremely familiar with it.

This enormous outdoor art gallery stretches for 200km across Victoria’s Wimmera and Mallee region through some of the state’s smallest towns. The artworks adorn the side of 100+-year-old grain silos that have been the heart of the industry in the region over that time, renowned street artists Julia Volchkova, Guido van Helten, Fintan Magee, Matt Adnate, Kaff-eine, and Rone have all taken part in producing murals in the towns of Sheep Hills, Brim, Patchewollock, Lascelles, Rupanyup, and Rosebery.

The murals capture locals of the areas they’re painted in, and are bringing thousands of tourists to areas that wouldn’t usually be on your standard tourist trail.

There are tours that can help you check out everything there is to see and do with the Silo Art Trail; Grampians Wine Tours run their Silo Art Tours on Thursday, Friday and Sunday for $99, or if you’re looking to take to the skies for a different look Grampians Helicopters run their Silo Art Flights from Stawell.

The Silo Art Trail is an ever-evolving art piece with plenty more to come, keep up to date via the Silo Art Trail Facebook page, or their Instagram.
