Absolutely amazing.....a must to visit. The sculpture is incredible and conveys a beautiful story encompassing indigenous Tasmania through war era. The savoury scones are to die for. Very tastefully done.

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
