The Wall In The Wilderness

Updated: Apr 8

Situated at Derwent Bridge in Tasmania's Central Highland and a short 13. minute drive from Bronte Park Village. The Wall is Australia's most ambitious art project undertaken in recent years. By 2015 creator/designer, Greg Duncan whom plans to carve the history of the highlands in 100 metres of timber, most of which will be in our rare Huon Pine.

The beautifully carved works set out in relief sculpture depict the history, hardship and perseverance of the people in the Central Highlands and pay homage to the individuals who settled and protected the area.

Duncan is already known for the uncanny realism he brings to his work and his pieces are sought after by collectors around the world. Each metre of the panels, including horses, thylacines and foresters represents a month's work.

There is nothing like this anywhere else in Australia. The Wall is a world-class experience

Notes from the Sculptor: On the 1st March 2005 in one of the most beautiful parts of Tasmania I set out to undertake sculpting a wall that would be 3 metres high and over 100 metres in length.

The material would be Huon Pine.

Through an often arduous at times but also immensely satisfying journey and over a decade and half later I welcome you to visit what is simply known as The Wall.
