Echuca Moama Silo Arts Trail Small towns & surrounds

July 30, 2021 BY

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.

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