This amazing exhibit tells the story of Tasmania through the artists eyes on panels of Huon pine. The detail of the carvings is like nothing I have seen in woodcarving. Good on site cafe and a friendly staff! No photos are allowed of the work.

Beautiful carvings at various stages of completion showing the artistic process. Comfortable surroundings with overstuffed leather chairs and a bar. If you are into carving worth hanging out here for a while. No photos allowed inside.

Fabulous carvings, no photos allowed to be taken inside. Worth a look but I think a bit steep at 15 per adult to get in when you've probably seen it all in 15 minutes. The pencil drawings were just spectacular.

The wall is an out standing carved art work some 100 metres long, Plus many smaller pieces. The detail in the carvings is just astounding, even down to the fine detail of the veins on the back of the men's hands. This is a must...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

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... More
