Admire the carved timber relief panels at The Wall in the Wilderness, which depict the struggle and survival of indigenous people and pioneers. See why some have likened the project to Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel: The artist, Greg Duncan, has spent a decade carving a wall from solid Huon Pine.  The wall is a work in progress and when completed, The Wall in the Wilderness will be 100 m (328 ft) long.

  • Amazing feat of craftsmanship!! Think of it as going to an art gallery - no photos, kids aren't allowed to run around, and take your time to enjoy all the displays. Photos don't do it any justice, it needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. The Wall has apparently taken around 10 years to complete, housed in a building that the artist built himself in around 18 months. The staff are incredibly helpful and informative - very eager to answer any questions. There's a small cafe inside, we had home-made style soup, and then fresh scones with jam and generous amounts of fresh cream, and chocolate torte with berry compote and generous amounts of cream. All chef prepared, very fresh, and absolutely delicious!! OMG the food was amazing - highly recommended!
  • Spectacular - would thoroughly recommend a visit. The vision of the artist is absolutely incredible. Wandering around, you are just in awe of his talent.
