Founded in 2015, Silo Art Trail is Australia’s largest outdoor gallery. The trail stretches over 200 kilometres, linking Brim with neighbouring towns Lascelles, Patchewollock, Rosebery, Rupanyup and Sheep Hills.

Providing an insight into the true spirit of the Wimmera Mallee, the trail recognises and celebrates the region’s people through a series of large-scale mural portraits painted onto grain silos, many of which date back to the 1930s.

The project saw a team of renowned artists from Australia and across the world visit the region, meet the locals and transform each grain silo into an epic work of art; each one telling a unique story about the host town.

The Silo Art Trail was conceived in 2015 after the success of the first silo artwork in Brim. What started as a small community project by the Brim Active Community Group and artist Guido van Helten resulted in widespread international media attention and an influx of visitors to the region. It was here that the idea for a trail was born.

The Silo Art Trail was created as a partnership between Yarriambiack Shire Council, international street art agency Juddy Roller, Victorian Government, Australian Government and GrainCorp, who donated the silos as canvases for the artists’ work.

Completed silos:

Brim - Guido Van Helten

Patchewollock - Fintan Magee

Rupanyup - Julia Volchkova

Sheep Hills - Adnate

Lascelles - Rone

Rosebery - Kaff-eine

  • Wonderfully detailed artwork. These silos just have to be seen up close to be appreciated. Absolutely worth the trip - we saw all the Victorian silos and can't wait to see more. The old railway stations sometimes close by are also worth a look.
  • Great work at such a scale. Well worth the trip, didn't have time to explore the Town for other sites of interest.
