Silo art is not just a beautiful addition to Australia’s rural landscape—for many towns and communities, it is an economic and cultural lifeline. There are 36 grain silos along the Silo Art Trail in regional Victoria.

Huge painted images differ, from scenery to life portraits, to the faces of an entire family’s generation. Each enormous structure guides visitors through the region, telling stories of the land and communities as individual as the artists’ brushstrokes that created it.

For the first time, National Seniors Travel is offering an exclusive guided tour of the Silo Art Trail. This five-day tour takes you up the Hume Highway to Benalla, before heading north, viewing silos at Devenish, St James, Goorambat, Tungamah, and Rochester.

Beyond the silo trail, discover the cosmic rich history of the Murray River, where you will get to relive the magic and romance of the riverboat days on the prettiest paddle steamer at Echuca. See and hear native wildlife in their natural environment while stepping back in time, enjoying commentary from the skipper.

As we move from town to town, we uncover real outback experiences and historic architecture with a foodie twist, engaging in local cuisines at each opportunity. We will also witness the spectacular Heartbeat of the Murray sound and laser show. This incredible show is the first of its kind, utilising water, light, laser, sound, and special effects to tell the fascinating story of the Murray—from 30 million years ago to today. This dream tour will make for a truly memorable experience in 2021.
