There’s a growing trend attracting tourists to the western districts of regional Victoria. I’ve featured silo art murals in this blog previously from Brim, Ship Hills and Patchewollock, now there’s a new silo art mural at Rupanyup.
These old grain silos are much smaller than the other sites, but the art work in the latest murals are no less remarkable. The paintings, by Russian artist Julia Volchkova, are of two young local sports people. What an honour it must be for the families of those kids immortalised in the murals, which are drawing tourists into Rupanyup.
By the end of 2017, there will be two more silo art murals unveiled (at Lascelles and Rosebery) to complete the tourist silo art trail. What a great weekend road trip that will be for anyone who loves to get out and see the country.
