Follow the Silo Art Trail in South Australia
If you happen to be taking a country drive around South Australia, make sure you keep your eyes open for some of the incredible artwork gracing our rural silos.
These amazing artworks have been created by a variety of talented artists from interstate and overseas who have literally gone to great heights to create their masterpieces.
We think the artworks are simply fantastic as they capture the essence of Australia, the outback and rural communities.

Negative feedback about a proposed wall mural in Millicent led London-based Artist, Fin DAC to instead donate his time to create a giant mural on the kindergarten wall of Allandale East Area School.
The artist was invited by a local teacher to share his skills and talent and, in conjunction with locals including year 12 student Caitlyn Millard, the giant mural was created. Fin DAC and his artwork has provided inspiration to young students, encouraging them to pursue their interest in art.
Silo Art on the cards for Paringa
Paringa Silo Art is currently a concept at the funding stage and is rapidly gaining community support, having achieved necessary approval from local stake holders and Renmark/Paringa Council.
Paringa Silo Art are wanting to paint a Mural on our Silos in the centre of our little town Paringa (pop 1000) here in the Riverland of SA.
It will be a great tourist attraction and help our Community substantially.With a total cost of over $100,000 it is an ambitious Project for our small Community, but we will give it our best effort and now ask for your support.
Paringa Silo Art Project will become the Gateway to The SA Silo Art Trail positioned on the mighty Murray River immediately prior The Paringa Bridge.
