Explore Victoria's silo art in Echuca Moama & surrounds

It’s big, it’s bold, it’s beautiful, and it’s no wonder that the popularity of silo art has boomed across Australia over the past six years.

The Echuca Moama region and surrounds is home to four of Victoria's silo and water tank art installations and we invite you to follow the trail below and explore many of our other art and cultural attractions along the way.

We recommend allowing a full day to explore the Silo Art Trail itinerary below (including lunch at a winery) or break it up into two half-day drives. Total driving time, excluding stops, is approximately 3.5-4 hours.
