A local Tasmanian attraction that has become an increasingly popular destination over the last few years, located in Derwent Bridge in Tasmania’s Central Highlands. The Wall in the Wilderness is the labour of love of Greg Duncan, local woodworker and sculptor.
An incredible sculptural and relief wood carving work, completed over many years, which demonstrates many aspects of life in Tasmania. Large, rare Huon Pine panels cover the walls, some are left partially carved as a demonstration of how they are constructed.
The ‘Oohs’ and ‘Aahs’ come thick and fast and as visitors take in the fascinating detail of human form and the realistic way he has captured the way fabric folds and falls. Each meter of the panels represents a month’s work. It’s realistic artwork on a large scale, a must see for anyone travelling in the area.
While there enjoy a cheese platter or some home baked delights and relax in beautiful surrounds.
The work continues to evolve as Greg documents the history of the vale. His work is highly sought after around the world and there’s nothing like this anywhere else in Australia. Visit The Wall in the Wilderness for a world-class experience.
