The Wall in the Wilderness, Derwent Bridge

4.4
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.

  • This is absolutely a must see. It gave me "goose bumps", the story it tells of Aussie life in such an incredible way is something I'll always remember. The workmanship is the best I've ever seen....in any medium. A truly remarkable experience. Allow plenty of time. Look closely at the details... wonderful.
  • Exquisite work, well worth the stop. Would love to see the carvings finished! So much detail and the coffee is good too.
  • Fantastic place to visit amazing wood art that Greg Duncan has produced and the story behind it. Top it off by going to the cafe and having the scones with jam and cream and a cappuccino one of the best I have had Would Highly recommend this place to see with your travels around Tasmania
  • The outside of the building does not prepare the Visitor for the extraordinary offering of art on the inside. Greg Duncan is an incredible and talented craftsman. His finishes and the outpouring of emotion in his work is almost spiritual. Be prepared to spend some time taking in the detail and the stories outlined on the 100 metre wall and the stand-alone pieces around the walls. Also take time to sit and enjoy the garden annexed to the cafe. Even better with one of their excellent coffees.
  • Fabulous! Amazing sculpture. Well worth the visit. Great selection of food in cafe. I asked about gluten free and the chef provided something off menu for me with a smile. It was no trouble! Don't miss seeing this in your trip around Tassie it's so worth it!
