Information

The Wall in the Wilderness is a truly spectacular and beautiful sculptural work in progress by artist Greg Duncan. He has carved into a wall of beautiful huon pine at 3m high and over 100m in length. The project began in 2005 and is completely self-funded. The carved panels depict the history of the Central Highlands region, showing faces of people with great emotion as they carry out their harsh tasks - miners, hydro workers, pastoralists, indigenous people, pioneering timber harvesters etc.The wall is contained in a weather proof building. The website offers an online booking system where you select a 1.5 hour allocated time slot to enjoy a self guided tour at your leisure. This allows everyone time to contemplate and enjoy the art space. A fee of $18 is charged if paid online. $20 if you turn up without an online booking. $6 for children over 8yrs.Read the reviews - patrons rave about this experience being highly worthwhile and a rare opportunity to witness such exquisite art work so don't miss it and support the artist. Please respect no photographs. A gift shop allows purchase of a photographic book.Sufficient parking for long caravans.
