IT’S big, it’s bold, it’s beautiful, and it’s no wonder that the popularity of silo art has boomed across Australia over the past six years.

The Echuca Moama Silo Art Trail features three spectacular art silos and one art water tank.

Spend a day exploring the small towns across the region and their art and cultural experiences, natural attractions and the Heathcote, Perricoota and Echuca Moama wine regions.

 

Rochester GrainCorp Silos

Painted by Jimmy Dvate in 2018, the silos feature two threatened local species, the Azure kingfisher and the wrist-winged squirrel glider.

Find them at 18 Ramsay Steet, Rochester.

Nearby is the Iddles Lane mural, commemorating former Victoria Police homicide detective, Ron Iddles and Mural Park, featuring a selection of 2.1-metre by 4.8-metre murals created as part of the annual Rochester Mural Festival.

 

Six silos of art at Colbinabbin include a range of scenes created by Tim Bowtell.

The six-silo art mural at Colbinabbin was painted by Tim Bowtell in 2020 and re-tells significant moments from the town’s history.

It’s located at Collins Street, Colbinabbin

While in town grab a coffee and some local produce at the Colbinabbin General Store, or experience a traditional pub meal at the Colbinabbin Country Hotel. You can also visit one of the nearby wineries in the award-winning Heathcote wine region.

 

Kyabram Goulburn Water Tank

The Kyabram Goulburn Water tank is the most recent addition to the Echuca Moama region’s silo art trail, being painted by Jimmy Dvate in January 2021. It features the Kyabram Fauna Park wetlands and some of the wildlife that inhabit them.

You can find it at the corner of Drum and Union streets, Kyabram

The Kyabram Town Hall Gallery showcases regional artists, touring exhibitions and a changing exhibition program of vintage clothing and you can also visit nearby Tongala and marvel at the 40 plus street murals painted on buildings and fences around the town centre.

 

The Picola silo mural is just a stone’s throw away from the subject of the art, Barmah National Park.

The Picola art silo is about a 45-minute drive from Echuca Moama and was painted by Jimmy Dvate in 2020. It features the culturally significant Barmah National Park and some of the wildlife that call it home.

It’s located at 25 Moran Street, Picola.

Nearby is the subject of the mural, the Barmah National Park, where you can take an eco-boat cruise into the narrowest part of the Murray River with Kingfisher Cruises.
