Great big artworks
Art on display

The first big silo art that I visited was at Yelarbon, Queensland, as I returned from a trip to Adelaide earlier this year. When I researched the topic on my return, I found that there is quite a lot around Queensland.

While I am not making plans to only visit places of such artwork, I do make a point of stopping where there is such art. It is not always easy to stop to take a photo in some places, but on a recent trip to the North Burnett region of Queensland it was on my "list" of places to stop, and easy to stop there.

The area was clearly inhabited very early on, with the local school opened in 1927, but closed in 1948. In the 2016 Census, it was recorded that the population of Three Moon was 147. (Source - Wikipedia).

Just a few kilometres south of Monto, you will find the Three Moon Silos with a great off-road viewing area, along with a sign telling the Three Moon story.

Apparently, it is great to view the silos at night, but I could only be there during daylight hours.

So, if you are out and about, driving around, you'll find some wonderful art and stories on silos or water tanks. There's plenty to see in Queensland.

Silo art and murals are popping up everywhere these days. I live in Wonthaggi in Victoria. We already have quite a few wall murals but I noticed this week another is being painted on a wall beside a car park.
