We were on the rout to see the silo's bet were surprised to see already this set here in Coonalpyn. You can't miss them when driving over the Princes Highway, or the South Eastern Highway. It was very windy that day.

I love the silo art trail in Victoria and was delighted to see that silos in other parts of the country are painted as well. We regularly stop here for a coffee/toilet break and I don't get tired of this view. Amazing artist.

The Coonalpyn Silo paintings are so beautifully done and along with the other artwork in town is a credit to this community. I was appalled to see that Viterra had placed a large advertising sign right in front of the silos advertising that they were...More
