Silo art at Goroke
is an interesting town in the heart of the Wimmera-Mallee region. It is located 368 km north-west of Melbourne and 68 km west of Horsham. The name Goroke is a local Aboriginal word meaning "magpie". And yes, there are literally many magpies in the park where the silo art is and of course, the silo art features a big magpie and also a beautiful kookaburra.
Memorial Square in main street
The town has a very wide main street with a memorial square in the centre of the street. In the square is a stone sculpture and a plaque on it with names of the men and women from the district who fought in World War One and Two and the Vietnam War.
Big resting area
Opposite the square is the memorial hall and next to it a very spacious rest area for travellers to stop and have a break. There are tables and chairs and even a sheltered BBQ area.
Main street in town centre
The town is laid out in a grid pattern that is only two blocks across and five blocks deep. There is also a hotel along the main street, a takeaway shop, a library and a local supermarket.
