A shared passion.
GrainCorp Silo Art
Australian towns are renowned for loving ‘big things’, with many towns highlighting their local industry, agriculture, history or natural beauty with large outdoor sculptures and giant paintings.
So, it’s only natural that our silos around Australia are becoming the canvases for regional creativity and expression.
Since our first project in the Victorian town of Brim in 2015 (population 171), we’ve worked with local councils to lend some of our sites to local artists to create impactful artworks in regional communities and encourage visitors to the area.
It’s just another great reason to get off the beaten track and see more of Australia.
Does your community want to join the Silo Art Trail?
GrainCorp’s silo art projects are a collaboration between GrainCorp and regional communities, artists and local councils.
GrainCorp donates the use of its silos as the ‘canvas’ and does not profit from silo art.
Please consult the map of eligible GrainCorp properties to determine whether your local site is suitable for a permanent mural project.
Please note, if your site is not on the map, your submission will not be considered.
When applying for a silo art project, you must submit a proposal that includes:
- Details of the property
- Who’s involved (community group, local council, artist)
- Traffic and environmental management plans (including fencing, parking, signage and viewing)
- A concept of your artwork
- Safety qualifications and insurance
- Plans for securing funding
Funding for the project must not be secured prior to obtaining official approval from GrainCorp for the use of the land and silos, under any circumstances.
How to apply
The application round for new silo art projects is open from 1-28 February each year.

Notes on commercial usage
GrainCorp’s silo art projects are a collaboration between GrainCorp and regional communities. We do not profit from silo art.
As owners of the artworks, we are invested in the use of the artwork to benefit local communities and continue to support and increase visitation to these areas.
If you’re considering creating items of merchandise containing images or reproductions of our silo art projects that you intend to sell for profit, you must review and follow our guidelines around supporting the local communities.
