This is a spectacular piece of artwork and worth the stop. It is a bit expensive but I understand the artist needs to make a living and cover his overheads. I have read other reviews that express views about the shortcomings of the expression of first Australians in this artwork. It is an artwork not a full and final statement... More

What s beautiful serene place with the most beautiful carvings. A place you shouldn't miss. Pleased you can't take photos, it would take the atmosphere away if everyone was taking photos. The meal was great also

Definately worth visiting. The craftsman is very clever. Amazing the amount of detail gone into the carvings. Cant wait to see it in another couple years when more creations are added

This is one of the most amazing works in progress I have seen in years. The atmosphere is wonderful. When you have finished viewing 'The Wall' call at the coffee shop for the best scones ever.

While as a piece of art it is interesting and (probably) worth the stop if you are driving by, the “no photos “signs in your face are very off-putting. (not worth a 3 hour drive from Hobart to just see it). For an artist trying to preserve our Australian identity and tell a story with his work, the story only... More

This is quite an amazing place so don't drive on by if you are on the way to or from the West Coast. In fact drive up there anyway from Hobart or wherever as you won't be disappointed. It is a world class display of wood carving so good it's hard to believe how brilliant this guy is. There's a... More

We could not get over the attention to detail here. The Wall is an amazing work of art. It is hard to believe that this is wood and not fabric.

While "The Wall" is some 3 hours west of Hobart it is definitely worth the drive. This fresco/ mural/ wood carving is exceptional. Some 100metres of wood carving. Carved out of Huon Pine. The definition in carving from the intricate veins in the workers hands or the animals muscles to the horse and cart must be seen to be believed.

We were so disappointed here. $13 each. And no photos. Is it just me who doesn't understand why no photos? I am hardly going to get some wood & start copying the work. Clearly the man is talented & making a fortune but I only liked some of the work & was left feeling very flat & disappointed.

This is an amazing piece of art and should not be missed. Forget about the admission charge; just go see the wonderful wood sculptures. I defy you to find better.
