Owner description: One man's amazing tribute, carved entirely from Huon Pine timber, to the history of Tasmania.

Wow what a wonderful display of wood carving. It is amazing We were very impressed with all the carvings --- the details in all of the panels is so excellent you feel so though you are actually ' there' with the subject The admission was only $10 Worth much more I thought Would recommend anyone to see this

I'm glad we stopped to check out the Wall. The attention to detail in the completed panels is amazing. I have no idea how the artist has done it! It would be good to have an explanation on what each panel is portraying, but perhaps that will be part of the exhibit once it is completed? The brochure says it's expected to be finished by 2015... it seems like there is a lot still to do! Good luck!

A must do stop off if driving between Hobart and Strahan/Queenstown. The smell of Huon Pine on entering is amazing and the work of the Artist is breathtaking. The work is as yet unfinished so is a work in progress but can't be missed.

Absolutely incredible imagination, and workmanship. Beautiful smell of Huon Pine (like no other) as you enter the building. It will take a while to walk, see and admire the craftsmanship, so you'll need your glass of local wine. Do not miss the turnoff, do not miss this magnificent living exhibition of the history of Tasmania.

If you are ever thinking of visiting Tasmania then go there for no other reason than to visit The Wall. It is the most amazing exhibition of artistry and craftsmanship that you are ever likely to see. A 100m long (when completed) huon pine hand carved panel depicting the history of Tasmania. From the time that you enter and are tempted to pick up the pair of calf-skin rigger's gloves on the table and then see the bib and brace overalls hanging on the hat-stand you realise that this is going to be something totally unique and extraordinary.
Consider that this is totally self-funded and done by an electrician who taught himself to carve and stand in awe.
