Coonalpyn Silo Mural
Apr. 2021
I mapped a number of Silo Arts to stop, revive & survive a 12000km roadtrip, and came to appreciate the monochrome ones the most.

This was a perfect example of simplicity and beauty.

My hat is off to the talented artist, Guido van Helten

Well worth the drive.

The Coonalpyn Silo Art is a credit to the artist. Using youngsters of the community is a great idea and what better way to engender community pride in themselves than to see larger than life images of them on display like this. Looking at previous photos of the silos that have been submitted I see no need to add any more. This is an attraction residents of Coonalpyn can be extremely proud of.

Art on silos! Spectacular
Apr. 2021 • Couples
The silos are in black and white and depict children in thoughtful poses. It’s wondrous to see the detail on a canvas so large . Definitely stop have a look. Use the public restroom ( very clean) and take a walk through the railway underpass

Coonalpyn Silo Art

We love seeing the Silo Art in Australia. This one is so lovely and it was great to read the plaque about how they did it all and the inspiration.

There is parking available and a cafe nearby!

Worth the journey break
Apr. 2021
This is one of several similar sites in the general area, including the west of Victoria. The idea brought to fruition obviously has been an economic boost to the area as there are now three seemingly prosperous businesses catering to the food needs of tourists, located on the busy highway between Melbourne and Adelaide. But be warned - our experience at the Silo Cafe (Lavazza coffee!) was that if a toilet break is needed, use the clean public facilities in the parking area near the silos (and admire the community-created mural) as there were no facilities available in the cafe.

Great silo art
Feb. 2021
We have been doing a road trip to see painted silos throughout Victoria (and a couple in SA).

This one is an impressive one.

I really like the black and white tones, although this style is not my wife's favourite as it is a bit harder to see than the coloured ones.

As this is on the main road, there is no excuse to miss it.

Great Photo Opportunity
Jul. 2019
This was a quick stop for us on our way to Murray Bridge from Melbourne. It was a perfect place for the girls (3 & 6) to have a quick run and get an amazing photo of these Silo's.
We didn't stop long as we really wanted to get to Murray Bridge, but these are amazing and not to be missed.

Well there isn't that much to do in Coonalpyn but take 10 minutes to view this wonderful artwork. One of many popping up all over the country this is beautifully done as are the others.
