Farrell Flat is a small town of approximately 300 in population located 20 kilometres east of Clare and 22 kilometres southwest of Burra. The former Roseworthy-Peterborough railway line passed through the town in late 1800s and early-mid 1900s.
Completed in November 2020, the silo art at Farrell Flat is now the 9th silo to join the South Australian silo art trail.
It depicts the last train to pass through this historic township.
Using about 150 litres of paint, local Adelaide artists Jarrod Soden and Matthew Knights spent 140 hours painting the 30-metre tall silo. The total size of the art piece is 900 square metres.
This silo art project has been funded through the Commonwealth Government’s Drought Communities Program and organised by the Farrell Flat Management Committee in the hope of increasing tourism in Clare Valley. It was the first to be painted in the region, and hopefully won’t be the last.
