All reviews huon pine wood carvings greg duncan amazing talent talented man no photography central highlands entry fee his son lake st clair tasmanian history awe inspiring world class on display taking photos no photos allowed scones
In my opinion it's one thing showing off your genius and this craftsman is truly that but it's another thing to exploit the tourists. Definitely not worth the $15 entry and the attempt to sell nips of scotch for $15
Greg Duncan is a perfectionist, a creative man of vision, and talent. His long display of huge Huon pine panels with three dimensional carvings is a joy to the eye, each panel being painstakingly created and each reflecting our wild life (lost and still surviving)...More
It’s hard to find adjectives not used by most people who have visited. Greg is a seriously great artist!! This work is so memorable that you could justify the 2 1/2 drive from Launceston or Hobart just to see it. Make this the prime objective...More
We were told to visit this place on our travels. Glad we did. Entry was only $10 each. No cameras but that makes you appreciate the art work more. There were stories only you could interperate as you walk around. Cosy fire to reflect the...More
Just off the highway at Derwent Bridge is this amazing exhibition of wood carvings and sculptures. The exhibition building contains the work of the artist that took in excess of ten years to make. I walked away amazed at the skill required to make these...More
Friends of ours in Hobart advised us to visit on our way through. An advertising flyer states: "This is truly the most ambitious and unique artwork open to the public in Australia today." I agree it was breathtaking. Fortunately the sculptor, Greg Duncan was on...More
We were told that this exhibit is a must see on the way, so we stopped. First we were astonished about the entrance fee, second about the strict no photo policy and my wife was asked to leave her camera at the counter or put...More
Visited The Wall in the Wilderness in Sept 2018. Was nice and warm inside as it had been snowing and there was snow still on ground around buildings. The handcrafted huon pine panels are astounding. They tell a story and the facial expressions on the...More
The Wall was on our itinerary as soon as we started planning our Tassie road trip. We visited on a Sunday afternoon as we travelled from Hobart to Strahan. We were initially disappointed when we saw that we couldn’t take in cameras, but once inside...More

Agree with the previous answers, but keep in mind the weather. The main roads are good and suitable for all weather conditions, however if you go "across country" and use single roads or dirt roads they can be very tricky if... More
Agree with the previous answers, but keep in mind the weather. The main roads are good and suitable for all weather conditions, however if you go "across country" and use single roads or dirt roads they can be very tricky if you are not use to the conditions and roads. Also this area is in the highlands, so be prepared for the temperature.

As indicated by Peter H, there are various ways to travel there but if you are heading to the west coast from Launceston or from Hobart you will pass by anyway. The only disappointing aspect of this attraction is you cannot take photographs. If you are travelling to Hobart make sure you visit the Mona Exhibition. There is nothing else like it anywhere in the world - a must see if travelling to Tasmania.
