For over a half century the huge cement storage silos have sat majestically atop the Fyansford hill overlooking the Barwon and Moorabool valleys, the You Yangs, Geelong and the Corio Bay. Visible to all new arrivals from the western district and the majority of Geelong's inhabitants, this familiar landmark has been a comforting sign of stability and permanence. As a reflection of the past it has become a mental image familiar to so many locals.

Fyansford's most visible icon,
the Cementies' silos can be seen for many miles
as a beacon that marks one's safe return to Geelong.
This immediately-recognisable landmark is having a facelift.
