A recent holiday to the copper triangle region of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia led me to discover some more street art, a pastime I love when travelling.

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.
