Silo Art in Australia

So… some different art appreciation today. A few years ago, my husband and I drove across the country. The weather was good and I have some amazing memories of that trip.

This fabulous mural artwork is painted across seven wheat silos in the rural town of Kimba on the Eyre Highway in South Australia. Kimba is also home to the Big Galah (in keeping with Australia’s fascination for “big” things) and a big sign advising you are “half way across Australia”.

But don’t you just love this massive silo art?

  1. A local water-tank is getting decorated with native wildflowers and birds (Murrumbateman NSW). I think it’s a great medium and provides something fun to wander past.
