South Australia’s silo art trail is something we’ve long been proud of. There’s an incredible array of art, right across our state, giving us every reason to explore SA, and discover the beauty that awaits.
The scale and design of silo art is both impressive and stunning. The artists use modern technology to achieve their gigantic results, which depict local people and aspects of local historical significance. The variety is wonderful and it has revitalized many country towns.
Tapping into this journey of wonder, is a new 6-day tour through the WEA, which takes you to the Upper South East, across the Mallee to the Riverland, through the picturesque Mid North and across the Eyre Peninsula. You’ll visit all of South Australia’s beautiful silo art sites at Coonalpyn, Karoonda, Waikerie, Wirrabara, Kimba, Tumby Bay and Cowell.
Visit flourishing towns such as Loxton, Burra, Melrose, Wilmington and Cleve and regional centres including Port Lincoln and Whyalla.
There are also short stops in lesser known places like Mindarie, Sandalwood, Rudall and Alawoona.
Extensive historical notes are provided and there is free time in Port Lincoln to relax in your luxury hotel, walk on the beach, visit museums, browse, or sample the coffee shops.
Your morning starts are leisurely and several museums are visited including the Whyalla Maritime museum and Mount Laura homestead while train enthusiasts might choose to explore the Port Lincoln Railway museum.
The tour includes the wheat lumper statue in Cummins, the gaily painted water tower in Snowtown, the Makybe Diva statue in Port Lincoln, the Joy Baluch statue in Port Augusta and the Edward John Eyre statue in Kimba.
