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.

The silos were painted in 2015 by artist Guido van Helton and are a great addition to the Victorian Silo Art Trail, which has become quite a tourist attraction.

The artist Guido van Helton is internationally recognised for his large scale contemporary street art that is developed through his exploration within the local community. He was nominated for the Sir John Sulman prize at the Art Gallery of NSW in 2016 for his work in the community of Brim,

The forest and wildflowers greet you as you wind your way up to Serra San Bruno

Serra San Bruno – Mountain High

Serra San Bruno is high up in the mountains of Southern Italy. You get there on a twisting road that snakes up through the highland forests.

Trees hang over the road to create a tunnel that filters the sun and cools the air. Snow signs warn that, in winter, this could be a more tortuous trail.
