The latest addition to the region's famous silo art trial is now complete.
A kookaburra, magpie, and galah, sitting in front of a picturesque Wimmera landscape, now take pride of place at GrainCrop's Goroke site.
Artist Geoffrey Carran began painting the murals in late September, after working closely with the Goroke community and West Wimmera Shire Council to develop the design.

The completed project joins the painted silos at Kaniva, which were only completed last month.
Council chief executive David Leahy said having two silo art locations in the shire was a high drawcard for the region.
"With COVID-19 restrictions easing, more tourists are now allowed to travel out to our beautiful part of the world," he said.
"We encourage everyone to put West Wimmera Shire Council on their list of 'must see' locations to visit."
Mr Leahy said regional Victorian visitors were already visiting both Kaniva and Goroke to view the painted works. He said he expected visitors from Melbourne to soon start arriving.
"We have many other attractions in West Wimmera Shire to take advantage of and we hope when people come to visit us, they also stop to buy food and fuel, or visit our wonderful lakes and wetlands," he said.
Carran is a contemporary artist base on the Surf Coast, but has family property at Apsley.
He is well-known for his his unique paintings of birds and plants, and has produced a design range for the National Gallery of Victoria.
Carran has previously painted bird murals at Edenhope, Balmoral, Niddrie and Naracoorte.
His latest work joins a silo art trail that first started in the region in Brim in 2016 and soon spread to seven other locations throughout the Wimmera and Mallee.
"We are very fortunate to have our own piece of silo art in our backyard," Mr Leahy said.
Fencing is still being completed at the site. Anyone planning on visiting the silos must abide by all safety measures in place, including exclusion zones, and there is to be no entry to the GrainCorp site.
