When you’re travelling from Hobart to the West Coast – or reverse – a welcome break in the journey can be made at Lake St Clair, with The Wall in the Wilderness.

Artist Greg Duncan is creating a stunning sculpture at Derwent Bridge in the heart of Tasmania. The Wall in the Wilderness is Greg Duncan’s commemoration of those who helped shape the past and present of Tasmania’s central highlands.

A work in progress, The Wall is being carved from three-metre high wooden panels. The carved panels will tell the history of the harsh Central Highlands region – beginning with the indigenous people, then to the pioneering timber harvesters, pastoralists, miners and Hydro workers.

When completed The Wall will be 100 metres long. Greg Duncan’s sculpture The Wall will rank as a major work of art and tourist attraction in Tasmania.

In the meantime, come and see history in the making at The Wall in the Wilderness.

Nearby accommodation options include Tarraleah Estate where you’ll find affordable hotel style, self catering cottages and premium quality Lodge rooms with spas. Great food and wine available on site too!
