Artists interpreting the cycle of wildflowers; local birds and rare animals; sea creatures; dog on a ute; the colours of harvest, salt lake, pasture and sky.
These towering agricultural landmarks invite you to get closer, and explore, to follow the trail, and visit some of Western Australia’s most welcoming and down-to-earth farming communities. Read Stories from the Silo Towns, FORM's collection of first-hand accounts of living on the land.
The chance for the tight-knit communities of the Wheatbelt and the Great Southern to build a cultural tourism experience with the help of art that captures the imagination, and that expresses the work ethic and resilience of the regions.
