Devenish Silo Art

As you leave the Goorambat Silo Art and continue north on the Benalla Silo Art Trail in Victoria, you will soon encounter the beautiful and detailed artwork by Cam Scale of the Devenish Silo Art featuring an Australian combat medic and a military nurse, one modern-day and the other in World War One era uniform. They stand amongst red poppies of the Flanders fields.

I visited Devenish with my Granny, a former nurse herself (non-military) and she loved the artwork on these silos which are a tribute to the 50 or so local men and women who enlisted into military service during World War One. It represents the sacrifice people make for others whilst in military service.

Over 3,000 Australian women volunteered as military nurses in that conflict. It acknowledges both the historical role of nurses and modern-day military medics, whilst highlighting the role women play in military service. The silos date back to 1943.

I recommend visiting Devenish in the morning so you get the light directly in the artwork. We arrived later in the day and it was difficult to get bright photos with the sun behind the silo.
