Colbinabbin …

More silo art, the paint has barely dried.

Colbinabbin is about 160 km north of Melbourne and about 54 km from the nearest large town, Bendigo.

The artwork is by the Benalla artist Tim Bowtell and it is a splendid accomplishment. It celebrates local history from the Colbo Picnic of the early 1900s through the days when steam was king to a tractor pull from the 1980s.

For the photographer interested in where the light will be coming from the artwork faces south.

Colbinabbin is situated in north central Victoria. It’s the home of the Colbinabbin Football and Netball Club, AKA the Hoppers and it has a shop or two. Parking and visibility of the art is excellent. It’s a terrific project that I’m sure will do the town some good.
