Quirindi's Silo has been repurposed into a stunning tourist attraction. Lead artist Peter Ryan transformed the giant canvas of the silos to tell the story of Quirindi, its past, present and future by day and by night!

By day you can admire Yurrandaali, the tree goanna, Totem of the Liverpool Plains and protector of the land. This beauty forms the centre of the local dreamtime story, while the silo story continues through time with the arrival of white settlers, agriculture and the railway.

By night the art comes to life with a count-down clock starting 30 minutes before the show.

Grey Bandaarr Kangaroo, the knowledge holder, conveys messages and warnings to Yiluwidi Bandaarr, the blue kangaroos, who are the fastest. They take messages and warnings about threats to the other animals. Produced with the aid of Australia's premier project and light art company, Illuminart, visitors watch in awe as kangaroos bound, raindrops flow, sunflowers bloom and fireworks explore in a choreographed digital display.

Comfy lounges invite you to watch the nightly show, which is audio accompanied, so tune in to 88.6FM on your radio or phone to enjoy this dazzling free art-traction from 7pm Eastern Standard Time or 8.30pm during Daylight Saving Time.

There is also picnic tables, a paved walkway that honours donors, and a rain gauge in the form of poly-pipes indicating the annual rainfall since the silo was constructed.

Make Quirindi your base to explore the Liverpool Plains, with attractions including the Quirindi Rural Heritage Village, the Arts & Craft Shop is located in the historic National Trust Railway Station building, Bob's Shed for retro nostalgia, RSL Club with new viewing deck, (to be completed May 2024), Quirindi Golf Club, the Australian Mail and Monument Museum in nearby Werris Creek, the astounding First Fleet Gardens just down the road in Wallabadah, and what must be the best named lookout in Australia: Who'd A Thought It Lookout!

With historic hotel, motel and private accommodation, plus a caravan park, Quirindi is waiting to welcome you. 

Where? Station Street, along the railway, in town, opposite Liverpool Plains Shire Council offices.

Best viewing times: Painted silos face westeward, so early morning for atmospheric shots and late afternoon for a facade glow. Every night for the show.
