Festival Map

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Events

Seeing as I had a few days spare camped by the billabong at Camooweal I thought I’d create a Google map of Festivals and Events throughout Australia. So now we have it! The map can be sorted by any month so that it’s not overwhelming and easier to see what’s on in your area at a particular time. Click on a month, then click on the map to see an event or expand the different categories on the LHS for an alphabetical list of events. Here’s the link: http://wot2do.org/festival-map/ Of course, it’s still easier to use the search facility on […]

Google Map of Australian Silo Art and other murals

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Website

I have compiled a Google map showing the Silo Art and Water Tower murals which can be accessed via the website or the Facebook page. This map is in addition to the Google map of Op Shops around Australia which I released last year. I’ve recently updated the Op Shops to include those I’ve come across in my travels down the coast of WA. I’m always constantly updating the festivals around Australia as I hear about them as well. I will still be updating the Silo Art listing (and water towers) as new ones come to hand, but I have […]

Op shops now on Google Map

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Op Shops

You can now see all the op shops in Australia (what I’ve found anyway) on a Google Map. Go to the Home Page/Op Shops/Op Shop Map to find the map, or go to my Facebook page www.facebook.com/wot2do.au for the link. You can view individual states or territories, a combination of any, or the lot. Just tick the ones required. The op shops are colour coded and are listed in order of popularity for each organisation. The list, sorted alphabetically, can be expanded by clicking on the down arrow, otherwise you can just zoom into the map to find a store. […]

Website update

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Website

During an extended stopover in Broome I found time to rehash the website, specifically the Festivals and Events page. A few people had asked for a search facility for individual events, so now there is that option. You can now enter the name in the search box and if it’s in the database the event will show up. The facility does use predictive text, so sometimes there may be more than one event that contains part of the event name. Eg. If you type in’ Noosa’ you will get quite a few selections. Just pick the one you want and […]

Energetic start to 2018 with new silo art

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Silo Art

It seems the silo art is moving in leaps and bounds. Over the last few months work has commenced, or been completed on silos at Albany (WA), Goorambat (Vic) and Tumby Bay (SA), with new murals on buildings at Benalla for the Wall to Wall Festival held last month. There seems to be a difference of opinion on the theme for the one at Albany. It seems the choice of a ruby sea-dragon is not that popular!  

Silo art locations added

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Silo Art

Silo art is emerging as the new tourist attraction across Australia, with silo art trails in Victoria and Western Australia, plus other locations in SA and NSW. My latest project, and the last for this year, is to provide a listing of silo art locations that I am aware of. Although the main emphasis here is on silo art, there are other murals across Australia, painted on buildings, water towers and water tanks that are worthy of attention. I have therefore added some of those as well. If you know of anything that isn’t on the list, let me know […]
