The ladies adorned themselves with their own silo art as they felt the Dooen Silo was naked, so they took it upon themselves to be a replacement.

FIVE visitors to the Silo Art Trail took to the trail with enthusiasm and became the silos themselves with some inventive costumes.

The six friends, Kim Rycroft of Narbethong, Cheryl Gigney of Blackwood, Leanne Stirling of Marysville, Julie Johnson of Cormomandl, Andy Damen of Melbourne and Sharon Moyle of Belair, wore the colourful costumes created by the Marysville Arts Group students for an Australia Day event.

The ladies ventured throughout the district for three days, soaking in the sights and the culture of the area.

Kim said they all had the best time visiting the silos, the Stick Shed, the towns and the people.

The ladies met at Horsham on Sunday and started their tour at Rupanyup, then to the Dooen Silos, where they said the silos were ‘naked’ and so became the art themselves.

“It was such an adventure. Wherever we went there was something to discover, we want to say back to the community, thank you for having the foresight to create this,” Kim said.

“We had a ball and we are jealous of your silos, we love what you have,” she said. Following on from there, they visited the silos of the area before stopping at the Wheatlands Machinery Museum in Warracknabeal, then
onto Birchip, then Sea Lake and dropped back to Murtoa to experience the Stick Shed.
