Silo art is a growing attraction through rural regions of Australia and here’s another one to add to the list, if you are travelling through the Riverland region of South Australia. You’ll find these beauties in the town of Waikerie, which sits on the Murray River around 180 kilometres north east of Adelaide.
Travelling through the Mallee region of South Australia will lead you to one of the painted grain silos that is part of the Australian Silo Art Trail. This art on a grand scale can be found in the town of Karoonda, a little over 145 kilometres east of Adelaide.
We’ve driven National Highway A8 and the Western Highway a few times in the last few months and it’s a relatively easy drive. You can of course break it up, staying overnight or as long as you like on the way to Melbourne, but it’s also doable in a day. The entire route takes a little over 8 hours to drive, remembering that when you hit the Victorian border you will lose half an hour when the time zone moves forward.
