Mildura Regional Development (MRD) CEO Daryl Buckingham has spoken about both the importance of the Remembrance Silo Art Trail and about the selection process for the final artwork. In an interview with ABC Mildura Swan Hill, Buckingham was asked about the value he believes the project would bring to the region and how the artistic designs will be developed and chosen. You can listen to the full interview here:

Mildura Regional Development (MRD) has announced today that is has been working on a proposed Remembrance Silo Art Trail concept. CEO Daryl Buckingham believes the project has the potential to support some of the region's outlying towns and he is inviting interested parties to join in a discussion around the possibilities. The proposed trail would cover 129km beginning outside Ouyen and finishing in Panitya. There would be up to 10 silo sites included in the trail and all of the silos would feature a military theme honouring the sacrifices made by servicemen and women from the Mallee. The project will also be timed to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign as well as the charge at Beersheba. The artwork will be created by veterans, adding authenticity and meaning to the trail.

Mildura has been named the top fruit-picking town and was the second runner up in Australia Town of the Year - as decided by Wotif.com. Places all around the country were rated on their affordability, demand, interest and the number of listed accommodation. Research was carried out across a nationally representative sample of Australian travelers - and Mildura has come out on top. As a major horticultural center, the region produces 75% of the country's table grapes and accounts for a massive number of fruit and nuts that are consumed on a daily basis.

The Remembrance Silo Art Trail will be a unique opportunity to unlock the potential of regional towns outside Mildura. Stretching from Ouyen to Murrayville and up to the South Australia border, the trail aims to leverage off Silo Art Trails further south and attract increased visitation to the Mildura Local Government Area. The RSAT will commemorate the sacrifices made by local servicemen and women in defence of our values and freedom. Each silo will honour a different conflict.

With the world continually changing and technology with it, we need to make sure we're keeping up. Mildura Regional Development (MRD) has come up with a plan to do just that - their Smart Farm project will use industry leading research and development and education and training to keep our region's farmers ahead of the game, ready to seize opportunities.
