The Wall in the Wilderness, Derwent Bridge

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.

  • The Wall was recommended by our neighbours in Canberra who are from Tasmania when we were planning our trip. We had to drive from New Norfolk just to see The Wall. It was worth the travel and entry fee. Enough parking 🅿 including disabled ♿ with disabled access. Besides The Wall there are a few other exhibits too. Clean and tidy toilets 🚻 are available including disabled ♿. There's a fine cafe with indoor and outdoor seating options.
  • Was highly recommended during phone call ahead to our next accommodation (advising them we were running a bit late for check-in). The accommodation owner said it was a "must see" Hadn't had time to read up on it thus had no idea what it was about. Unexpected A marvel Never seen anything like it Exquisite craftsmanship and artistry Our 10 and 14 year old boys also enjoyed it (no complaints of boredom)
  • Greg is a great sculptor. Amazing work. To see is to believe. We tried to find his work after visiting the wall. Not much luck. Then we realised it's a great idea to keep Greg's best art work in his own meusuem for generations to admire. The cafe is fantastic. Wonderful service, great drink, delicious soup, and the dessert is to die for. Highly recommended.
  • The artwork is absolutely incredible....a 'must see'. The amazing talent and dedication of the artist is astounding. The gallery is beautifully presented and includes a lovely classy little coffee shop that caters for light lunches, morning and afternoon teas etc. The amenities are top notch. If you can appreciate amazing talent and artwork then you would be hard pressed not to appreciate The Wall... highly recommended.
  • It's interesting and very talented. Lovely spot out in the court yard. Open fire inside and you can sit in a lounge with a drink and enjoy.
