GrainCorp Silo Art Trail

GrainCorp is proud to support the Silo Art Trail, with our sites providing the canvas for creations that are reinvigorating some of Australia's smallest regional towns.
Since the journey started in 2015 in Brim, we’ve seen artworks blossom across some of the largest and tallest structures in our storage network, from Victoria through to central Queensland.
As one of Australia's largest regional employers, we believe it’s vital to support local communities in rural and remote areas. Alongside the silos, we provide important safety and operational support to the projects, and we work closely with artists to ensure the artwork represents the character of the local community.

How many have you seen?

The Silo Art Trail is a fantastic reason to get out on the road and see more of Australia, and many tourists get off the beaten track just to see the squirrel glider at Rochester or the sheep at sunset in Thallon.
We would love to see your photos and hear your stories from the Trail – where have you been, and what have you seen?
Tag us in your photos on social media using #siloartstories, or email socialmedia@graincorp.com.au to tell us about your travels.


Want to nominate your local silo?

We receive regular requests for more information on how to get silos painted as part of the Silo Art Trail.
GrainCorp is proud to provide the canvas for these brilliant artworks, and we’re excited to consider your proposal.
However, you must read the policy document, and review the below information, to ensure you’re up to date with some important terms and conditions before applying for your local site to be a part of the Silo Art Trail.

 

What to consider before applying:

• You must already have the support of your local council
• You must be able to secure community funding for the project
• The proposed site must not be operational or have existing security fencing
• The site must have space for a dedicated viewing area
• The site must have a dedicated parking area (on GrainCorp property or otherwise)


Your local silo

Following the success of Brim, we have received hundreds of requests for more information on how to get local silos painted as part of the GrainCorp Silo Art Trail.

We are excited to work with you to explore this possibility but there are some important conditions that must be met. You can find a policy document here that gives an overview of these considerations as well as other terms and conditions.

If your questions aren't answered, please get in touch with us.

GrainCorp and MasterChef

In February 2017, we facilitated the filming of one of Australia's most popular shows, MasterChef, in front of the Brim silos. We worked closely with the production team to safely install commercial kitchens and film equipment. Filming required over 100 contestants, crew and support staff – nearly more than Brim's population!

The Brim episode of MasterChef put Brim on the map – more than anything ever before.


A new way to enjoy silo art!

We’ve partnered with Australia Post to produce these limited-edition postage stamps. Launched in May 2018, the stamps feature images of our silos in Brim, Victoria, and Thallon, Queensland, which form part of the GrainCorp Silo Art Trail. Head into your local post office to get your copy today.


Queensland

In Queensland, we have partnered with the Thallon Progress Association to paint our silos. The project is unique as Thallon is an operational site and in one of the most remote parts of our network. The artwork was launched in July 2017 and represented over two years of planning by the local community group.
