Adding Colour to the Rockhampton Skyline

Lily Place Industrial Precinct, Parkhurst will be home to a fantastic new landscape of silo art for Central Queensland.


Today JRT Director Jason Thomasson announced, “locally acclaimed artists Bill and Luke Gannon will soon be breathing new life into Rockhampton’s Lily Place Industrial Precinct. The father and son duo have been chosen as the preferred artists for the mural commissioned on the 6 Lily Place silos.”


“Whilst this will be the Gannon’s first foray into silos, they have completed many large scale works in the Central Queensland Region including at CQ University, where they completed 4x3 storey walls, 8 wide columns and a 40 metre under croft ceiling.”



“Community consultation on the Lily Place Silos will commence next week and we invite everyone to get involved.”


“We intend for these silos to be included on the Australian Silo Art Trail, of which there are only currently 3 sites in Queensland, and these will be the first Silos north of Monto in Central Queensland!”


“We are excited for the Silos at Lily Place to work to compliment existing Tourism and Events in the Rockhampton and Capricorn Coast Region and expect it to be a place to stop and grab a the perfect photo.”


“Works at Lily Place Industrial Precinct are moving along with 12 prestigious sites now available for purchase. For more information visit: lilyplaceindustrial.com”


Upon hearing the news Bill Gannon said, “the Lily Place Silos have a fantastic location being situated just off the Bruce Highway heading North from Rockhampton.”


“Silos have been on both myself and my son Luke’s bucket list for a long time and whilst we have a number of memorable murals both in Central Queensland and Melbourne this is by far the most interesting canvas.”


“We envisage iconic artwork on the silos that were built in the 1960s and hope to be able to bring some of the heritage and history of the Central Queensland Region to the site.”
