A couple of years back, heading West on a weekend away, we spotted some painted silos from the highway near Geelong. A quick detour had us getting off at the next exit and heading towards Fyansford.
A gorgeous little town, full of heritage buildings, it was totally worthwhile taking a sidetrip to have a look around the place.
The hauntingly beautiful former Orphanage and School have now apparently been sold and will become a private home for some lucky folks.
The Geelong Cement silos, painted by Rone in 2017, came tumbling down last year, to make room for a housing estate. I’m glad we got to see them up close while they were there, but as is the case with most street art, it’s a changing landscape and there’s always something new to see…somewhere along the highway.
