Kulin Bush Races

Australian Street Art Awards ๐Ÿฅฐ#thankyou loving the awards ๐Ÿ†
Can life get any better?Message to self - STOP GALLOPING along and pull back on the reigns to explore the fancy, funny, fantastical and fiendish. And behold, the Tin Horse Highway appeared. (See Mr Morrison, we believe in miracles too!) This is a community-created wondrous collection of 70+ metal horses, and while it's often hilarious, what the street art trail has achieved for the WA southern wheatbelt town of Kulin is no laughing matter. This trip down the road less travelled was kick-started almost 25 years ago to promote the Kulin Bush Races each October. Part of Pathways to Wave Rock, it showcases the iconic humour that typifies Australia's Golden Outback and now attracts tourists from far and wide. Location: In the Shire of Kulin, along the Kulin-Lake Grace Rd, either side of the Jilakin Race Track. Drop in to the Kulin Visitor Centre and Community Resource Centre for a map. The Australian Street Art Awards is a "Tourism Awards for Public Art" program, recognising through 14 categories destinations that use public art in its many forms to attract visitors. Nominations open. www.streetartawards.com.au #ausstreetartawards #streetart #publicart #mural #muralist #regionalart #regionaltourism #travelaus #seeaustraliafirst #travellingaustralia #streetarttrail #tinhorsehighway #kulin #muchmorethanmetal #campkulin #kulinbushraces #goldenoutback #westernaustralia

Kulin Bush Races

๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†Five Aussie road trips not to be shirked. The Savanna Way. The big lap. The Alpine Way. The Gibb River Road. The Tin Horse Highway. All are worthy, but only the last one will have you chuckling as you explore the fancy, funny, fantastical and fiendish. And unlike the others, you'll drive its length in less than an hour! The Tin Horse Highway is a community-created collection of 70+ metal horses made from farm junk, bits and bobs. The tin horses sit patiently awaiting your arrival in paddocks up and down the highway into the Western Australia wheatbelt town of Kulin at the centre of the Shire of Kulin. This trip down the road less travelled was kick-started almost 25 years ago to promote the Kulin Bush Races each October. Part of Pathways to Wave Rock, it showcases the iconic humour that typifies Australia's Golden Outback. Location: Just outside Kulin, along the Kulin-Lake Grace Rd. Drop in to the Kulin Visitor Centre and Community Resource Centre for more information. The town also has a beaut 72-hour freestay camp for SC vehicles plus a dog friendly caravan park. #greynomadawards #greynomads #vanlife #rollers #camper #RV #motorhome #caravanning #ontheroad #regionaltourism #ruraltourism #westernaustralia #tinhorsehighway #kulin #muchmorethanmetal #campkulin #kulinbushraces #goldenoutback ...
