Horsham Victoria

Horsham is a regional city, and the major economic hub of the Wimmera region of Western Victoria. Located on the Wimmera River, it is just under 300km from Melbourne, and accessible by a number of highways and a train line.

Horsham was officially formalised as a town in 1858, by which time more than 2000 farmers and squatters had already begun to call the region home. Prior to that the Jardwa people had lived in the area for as many as 20,000 years prior thanks to archaeological evidence found in the nearby Grampians.

Horsham has a cold semi-arid climate, withy cool long winters and hot dry summers that often soar above 40 degrees. The annual rainfall in Horsham is a mere 385mm despite more than 120 rainy days a year.

While the town is now a commercial hub, it was originally founded by graziers running sheep for wool and farmers growing wheat crops, and those two industries continue in The Wimmera to this day, with farmers also often rotating wheat with canola and legumes.

What are Silos?

Silos have been used for more than 5000 years, and are traced back to some of the earliest evidences of human civilisation. This is because harvesting and storing grain led to communities growing around those storage sites and moving away from the traditional hunter gatherer societies.

Today, silos are still primarily used to store grain – and quite often still wheat or barley, as our ancient ancestors did – and help keep it safe from the elements, insects and other factors that may impact the quality of the stored grain.

In Australia these silos are typically made from concrete, wood or steel, and are found in towns all across the nation. 

Ahrens Rural designs, engineers and manufactures a range of steel silos for on-farm use, long term storage and larger feedmills or grain handling facilities and has been building industry leading, quality grain silos for towns like Horsham since the 1950s.

Things to do in Horsham

Check out the Botanical Gardens or The Grampians

The Horsham Botanical Gardens are always worth a visit when you’re in town, or if you’re up to a bit more of a walk than that The Grampians are one of the most iconic tourist destinations in Western Victoria, and almost unmissable for those capable of the hike.

Take in some local culture and history

While you’re in town, the Horsham Regional Art Gallery is worth a visit and is full of art from rural and regional artists, and while art is on the mind it’s worth looking at the Horsham Silo Art that makes up part of the Australian Silo Art Trail. The history of the town is immortalised in the War Memorial and Cenotaph in town, the Anzac Centenary Bridge, and the newly upgraded town hall.
