Standing to attention across some spectacular Australian landscapes throughout the north-west of Victoria you’ll discover the Silo Art Trail.
This ride is in the neighbouring Wimmera region and is best accessed by basing yourself in nearby Horsham.
Stretching more than 200km from start to finish, the trail has become Australia’s largest outdoor art gallery and provides a unique adventure for the experienced cyclist. You can link as many or as few together as you like – here we take you through the first 3 of these astounding murals.
Starting at Brim, the silo was painted by Guido van Helten and depicts a generation of farmers from the area. Head south from Brim and stop in at Warracknabeal for a quick snack.
Moving down, the next silo, Sheep Hills is a striking mural by Melbourne-based artist, Adnate that weaves a story that celebrates the richness of the area’s Indigenous culture.
Your final stop is in Rupanyup to see Julia Volchkova’s mural devoted to the town’s youth and their love of sport. After a day of riding treat yourself to a delicious chickpea brownie and a refreshing drink.
