The Art Silos of Brim, Victoria
Part of the unique Silo Art Trail in Victoria, Australia
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.
Where in the world are we?
The painted grain silos in Brim, Victoria feature portraits of local farmers whose families have lived and worked in district for generations.
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.
