Brim Silos & Caravan Park

For a town of about 100 people, this small country town in the Wimmera of Victoria has now become a must stop tourist attraction  due to the amazing Brim Silos. We must admit, whilst we have driven past Brim in the past  it’s never been a spot we would consider camping or stopping.

Brim has risen to popularity in recent months due to the recent paintings by Guido Van Helten on  unused grain silos. The  Brim Silos stand at 30 metres tall and display 4 local people. 3 men and 1 woman. How Guido completed the paintings on these massive silos to absolute perfection is amazing, he is certainly a talented artist.

Since the Brim Silos have been completed in Late December 2015, not only Brim but the surrounding communities have benefited from the influx of visitors, which is fantastic to see.  Years of drought have impacted the community and with tourists spending money in towns it has certainly helped and we hope that it continues. For full details on the Silo Art Trail, have a read of our post that lists all the silos along the Silo Art Trail.

If you’re planning your trip to the Brim Silos, why not stay at the local Caravan Park which is on the banks of the Yarriambiack Weir Pool. 

The cost for a stay at the park is $10 per night for either a power or unpowered site. For a drought stricken area, we were pleasantly surprised with the good facilities here. Toilets, Showers and a Change Room, pity there is no mirror though. Outside wash up area, along with BBQ facilities on small patch of green grass, with a good playground for the kids.

If you’re keen to go swimming in the lake there is a nice beach front area for swimming or canoeing and boat ramp close by for launching of your ski boat. For launching of your boat, if you’re not a member it’s an additional $10 cost.  With the caravan/camping sites, they are all gravel or dirt however there is plenty of shade available from the large gum trees.

We didn’t camp here as we had just taken a day trip, however it’s a place that we want to come back and camp in the warmer months. It’s a low cost park with good facilities that is family friendly, if you do plan to stay here, please pay your camping fees to the Hotel or Dixons Garage.

    Hi LoveYour Travels, we are interrested incoming to Brim over the next next few months, could you tell me where the town is situated as we are from West Aust. And are coming to Vic for a month or so. It all looks so interesting and are hoping that there will be water to n the Lake. Thankyou. Elizabeth Nicolle.

    • Hi There Elizabeth Nicolle, hope your well 🙂 Coming to Vic is going to be exciting for you. Brim is located on the west side of the state of Vic, its between Mildura and Horsham. I would recommended doing the Yarriambiack Shire Silo Trails, this incorporates the Brim, Pattchewollock and Sheep Hills silo trails. There is also a new silo to be started to be pained in the coming weeks, thats at Rupanyup. All these locations are located near enough/in between Mildura and Horsham. There is plenty of water in the Brim Lake atm, and the caravan park is right on the lake which is convenient for you stay! If you need any other recommendations let me know. We live not far from Brim. Cheers, Stacey

  2. I had the silos trail on the list for the school holidays… but we did not get there. your post has inspired me to make time to visit though. Thanks for the camping info too!

    • Hi Jane
      Thanks for your comment! Oh yes, you will have to come back to do them! We have actually just done another one of them on Easter weekend, this was at Rupanyup.
