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.

  • We feel honoured to have had the opportunity to visit The Wall. It has been a true highlight of our holiday in Tasmania and was quite moving. We took in all the detail of each panel and are absolutely entranced by the magnificent sculpting of Greg Duncan. The gallery building in which The Wall is housed is magnificent in itself. As you are not allowed to take photos inside, we have bought the three books and look forward to reading these and viewing all the photos thoroughly. The snow on the gallery building was an added bonus. Thank you Greg Duncan.
  • Talent at its best. The whole family enjoyed walking around the gallery, each of us noticing something special that caught our eye. The attention to detail has to be seen to be believed. Galley is right off the highway and takes about 30mins to enjoy. Bookings are essential.
