Day 2. Mon 15 Nov: 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.

Today is spent discovering the great Shepparton area and what better place to start than the Greater Shepparton Tourist Centre where our local guide is waiting for us. We begin our discovery tour of Shepparton which includes some of the 100+ Moooving Art Cows. Moooving Art is an ever changing public art exhibition of life-sized 3D cows that pays homage to the strength of the dairy industry in Greater Shepparton. The fibreglass bovines are scattered throughout Shepparton and surrounding towns in public gardens, playgrounds and businesses and are full of colour, spunk and personality. Our next stop, the Shepparton Motor Museum, houses an ever changing collection that includes up to 100 classic, heritage and muscle cars generously loaned or donated as well as motorcycles, vintage bicycles and
car collectables. A very unique part of the museum is The Furphy Museum which is the only one of its kind. It is an authentic exhibition tracing the 150 year journey of Furphy engineering, the five generations of the Furphy family and the significance of the Furphy legend in our history. Leaving Shepparton we travel out to Tatura for a light lunch at Tatura Hot Bread, famous for their renowned vanilla slices. Following lunch we take a short stroll to Stuart Mock Place and view the
