Day 2. Mon 19 Oct: Albury – Shepparton Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast we farewell our hosts and make our way to the small township of Tungamah where Broome based
artist Sabrane has created a celebration of Australian native birds on the three silos. Our next township is St James
where artist Timothy Bowtell has decorated the GrainCorp silos with a mural of Sir George Coles, the founder of Coles
supermarkets who was a local to the St James township. Move onto Devenish where the war-themed Silo Art depicts a
World War I nurse and a modern-day army medic – the latest work of art on the third silo is that of a Lighthorse soldier
and his horse, which was unveiled on ANZAC weekend 2019 before a packed Anzac Day commemorative service. We
continue along the Silo Art Trail with our next stop in Goorambat. As part of the 2018 Wall to Wall festival, Goorambat
silos were painted by famed iconic Melbourne street artist Jimmy Dvate, and depicts an endangered bird of prey from
the area, ‘Millibai’ the Barking Owl. New to Goorambat in April 2019 is a large mural of three working Clydesdales;
Clement, Samuel and Banjo. They are owned by local horse property, Lavereen Stud, the mural was inspired by a photo
by Bob Britcher. We step inside the Uniting Church to view the beautiful mural of “Sophia” the female aspect of the
Holy Spirit. After lunch at the Railway Hotel we travel across to Dookie village, home to the Dookie Emporium, with
antiques to vintage, funky sixties to seventies, clothing, furniture, militaria, art and more. They also stock fresh regional
produce including cheese, preserves, nuts, eggs, fruit and vegetables, local wines and boutique beers. This afternoon
we continue into Shepparton to check-in to our accommodation for a rest before dinner.
