The International Wall of Friendship was conceived as a lasting memorial to the bonds of friendship and goodwill of many nations who have made Tasmania their home and their contribution and committment to the progress and well being of the State.
It is located in the sunken garden at the Commonwealth Government Centre in Hobart, the capital city of the Australian island State of Tasmania. It is believed to be the first project of its kind in the world being officially declared open in October 1992.
The Wall of Friendship has become a shrine for those communities which it represents. Each year communities gather there to celebrate days of national and international significance flying the Australian flag and the flags of their countries of origin.
