Murtoa Stick Shed

In the town of Murtoa, in the Wimmera region of Victoria, Australia, there is a large grain storage facility that looks rather like an enormous cathedral than a grain silo typical throughout the rest the country. Referred to by some as the ‘Cathedral of the Wimmera’ or the ‘Murtoa Stick Shed’, the building is 265 meters long, 60 meters wide and almost 20 meters high.

The Stick Shed was built in the beginning of World War 2 to store grains that could not be exported. It was the first emergency bulk wheat storage shed built in Victoria and is the only remaining shed of this type in Australia.
