PUBLIC SILO TRAIL 5 days | Sealed roads

Discover stunning outdoor artworks - visible for miles - on silos, street walls and transformer boxes celebrating the people and stories of the Wheatbelt and Great Southern regions. The PUBLIC Silo Trail is an open-air art gallery stretching from Northam to Albany. Wind your way through gorgeous Wheatbelt country towns like Merredin, bright with yellow canola fields and wildflowers in spring. Pause at pretty picnic spots and discover nature walks as you travel. Go via Hyden and see the famous Wave Rock before heading south to Newdegate where Perth muralist Brenton See has painted the area’s local wildlife on an epic scale; the Western Bearded Lizard, Mallee Fowl, Thigh Spotted Tree Frog and a Red- tailed Phascogale are depicted across four silos. As you leave the countryside behind, you’ll head towards the beautiful and expansive coastline of South West WA. Enjoy some time in quaint Hopetoun and be sure to explore the Fitzgerald River National Park, a stunningly beautiful yet rugged area with many walk trails, camping spots and picnic places. Continue along the coast to Albany, home to the ANZAC Centre and amazing whale watching trips in season. On the return, head back inland towards the charming farming towns of Katanning and Pingrup, taking in those wide landscapes and open skies. At each site, read about the artists and the stories of the silo towns they’ve shared in

their stunning works of art. For a detailed itinerary, visit
