Public Silo Trail: See the big picture

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.

Newdegate Brenton See

Newdegate is small, however despite its size, it is a self-sufficient farming community and hosts one of the state’s major agricultural events, the Newdegate Machinery Field Days. Held each year since 1979 in early September, the event boasts over 300-plus exhibitors over two days.

Salt lakes surround Newdegate, offering stunning photo opportunities despite the fact they are usually dry for most of the year. The area also offers many walking trails such as the John Holland Track and Lake Kind Heritage Trail. These trails are especially pretty during wildflower season which typically occurs from late August through to late October.

Don’t miss:

A visit to the White Cliffs: twelve km south of Lake Grace, these are an unusual combination of weathered granite, quartz and soft white kaolin. You need a four-wheel drive, and as the cliffs are on private land, an appointment for access.

Lake Grace: home of the award-winning Walkers Hill Winery, which is a lovely place to relax and sample some of the area’s finest wines. The cellar door offers wine tastings, and various wines, produce, arts and crafts for sale.

For more information and to plan your trip please visit the Newdegate Community Resource Centre.
