What an amazingly talented man. Unlike M.O.N.A, this is art at its finest. You can’t drive past here without stopping in, an absolute must see. It was worth every cent of the entry fee. Breathtaking!

This is epic and so thoughtful, I don’t know why anyone would gripe about the cost or the fact that you cannot take a photo. The story and craftsmanship are world class. I enjoyed a tea and scones in the courtyard afterwards and found the...More

This visit was a recommendation to view whilst travelling between Strahan and Hobart. Wow what an amazing exhibition of woodworking and craftsmanship! It is hard to believe that the exhibits are wood carvings, such detail it is truly magnificent. This is truly something that should...More

Although Derwent Bridge is fairly remote, any traveller in Tasmania driving between Hobart and Queenstown or Strahan is going to pass through. If that reflects your travel plans, we can recommend a stop just east of Derwent Bridge for a period of reflection to look...More

This is a must for anyone visiting Tasmania. It is in the middle of nowhere but well worth the trip. This is one talented man who has selflessly donated his time and craft to this unique place. The workmanship and display of purposely unfinished craftsmanship...More

This place is literally in the middle of nowhere but well worth the trip. The artistry and workmanship is remarkable. Appreciated the signage about controlling unruly children. It must have worked as we had a very peaceful visit. Had a opportunity to meet the artist...More

Clearly the artist is talented, but the whole place seemed very unfriendly. Sure, no photos is ok, but no need to plaster it all over the place. And so many of the panels seemed unfinished. Sure, I can understand leaving a few to show the...More

The building is magnificent and then you enter into a spectacular display of craftsmanship and while the signs say ‘don’t touch’ the temptation is overwhelming. Even though you know it is timber the gold in the cloth are so so real. The way it is...More

Seems only word of mouth promotes this art gallery & it seems to work a treat based on the quality of the work inside. A couple of kilometres on the eastern side of Derwent Bridge, is the Wall. What a great suprise. Not well promoted,...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
