This site is roughly a 2.5 hour drive from any coast of Tas. I live in Tassie and I learnt about this attraction from people in another state. The artistic impression I got was one of great love for the work from the artist, He has done an awesome job and His son is fantastic as well!

This is a display about one man's (artist) vision and the number of years that it takes to complete the dream. Take your time at the gallery, grab a wine or beer and stroll around the skilled presentation. You will not be sorry.

Title says it all really. As an example of vision, persistence and skill - extraordinary. However, the visitor experience is marred by the frequency of passive-aggressive sign writing, particularly regarding the behaviour of children (we don't have any, but the tone of the notices was irritating nonetheless), and the slights - perceived or otherwise that the sculptor has suffered (including...

We went to Derwent Bridge especially to see The Wall and were not disappointed. Its a beautiful series of carvings depicting the history of Tasmania. A notable and explained absence is much detail in Aboriginal history. Some of the art left me with shivers of emotion and sadness at the toil and heartbreak of the early settlers. I would love...

Wow!! What an impressive display of wooden sculpture. A very talented artist and we'll worth a visit. The building itself is also amazing. Scones with jam and cream are delicious!!

My partner and I drove from Strahan to Derwent Bridge to view this artwork. It is amazing !! Although it is not finished it is still a marvel to behold!! The facilities include a cafe, clean toilets and beautiful wood fire heater as well as welcoming staff. If you're a timber person or a handyman or craftsman you will not... More

Had heard it was finished but I wasn't sure as I walked around - took about 1hr. Gallery upstairs, toilets and food available. Reasonable price for entry fee. Stunning detailed work with plenty of hours to craft the Wall.

Wonderful place to visit. Worth the time indeed. Unfortunately they dont serve hot chocolate only soft drinks for kids. We dont drink soft drink so couldnt enjoy morning tea there.

Highly recommend this attraction, don't drive past, drop in. Who cares about the entry fee it's $13, well worth every cent. Imagine how much time and effort this guy has put in, how does he get paid???? It's something for you to do and enjoy, if you don't wanna pay the price, simply don't go. Lovely woodfire to sit and...
