Tumby Bay Mural

Eyre Peninsula & the West Coast

One of several giant murals to appear on South Australian wheat silos in recent years, this glorious spangle of colour is the work of Argentinian artist Martin Ron. A perfectly summery image of two boys back-flipping off a jetty, the piece took Ron 400 hours to complete and consumed 420L of paint! For the best view, walk to the end of the viewing area trail so the curves of the silos all align.
