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

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
