Annette Green created The Australian Silo Art Trail website & Facebook page to help struggling communities in regional Australia attract more visitors.

While travelling across Australia, Annette first noticed silo art in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia. She quickly realised there was no central record of the artworks, so she set up a Facebook page and community group to help others discover these attractions.

By mapping the large outdoor murals, Annette has showcased regional towns, encouraging more Australians to get out and explore their own country – boosting tourism in areas affected by drought and bushfires. As a result, a growing number of towns are now creating mural artwork and joining the trail, bringing benefits to local businesses and residents.

Annette has documented more than 150 sites and more than 7,500 kilometres of outdoor art trail. The artworks include 41 silos, over 70 water towers and many street art towns.
