For a road trip with a difference, explore the Victorian countryside and go for a drive along the Benalla Silo Art Trail.
Grain silo art (or wheat silo art) is becoming popular across Australia with beautifully designed and painted silos popping up all over the countryside forming a stunning and very unusual outdoor art gallery.
Empty grain silos across Australia are being given a new purpose and being decorated with beautiful silo murals.
Silo art trails are a fantastic way of promoting regional Australia (as well as showcasing the silo artist) and are helping to breath life back into our small country towns.
Once deserted towns are now teeming with activity as visitors drive up to explore the town and admire the silo artwork.
The north east silo art trail of Victoria (also known as the Benalla Silo Art Trail) starts in the town of Benalla and takes you on a tour through the towns of Goorambat, Devenish, St James, Tungamah as well as the Winton Wetlands.
