The Silo Art Trail is Australia’s largest outdoor art gallery. You can follow the trail which passes through many of the Wimmera Mallee’s small country towns. Our trip started in the south at Rupanyup and finished at the little village of Patchewollock. We completed that journey with an easy one day drive, We then overnighted at Sea Lake so we could visit Lake Tyrrell, Victoria’s largest salt lake.

Email from Ben: “I plan to climb Cradle Mountain when we visit the area in a few weeks – better start training”. So I reduced my alcohol consumption to one glass of wine a night (well, most nights) and did a bit of walking (on the flat) at weekends, so when we started our trek on a fine February day I was completely unprepared for what lay ahead.
