The Wall in the Wilderness

Sculptor Greg Duncan is carving the history of Tasmanian Highlands in the form of a sculpted wall. So far, Greg has carved scenes depicting the workers of the Hydro-Electric Scheme and of the forestry industry, and scenes concerning the environmental plight of the wedge-tail eagle and the extinction of the Thylacine (the Tasmanian Tiger).

The idea may be simple, but the scale is breath-taking: Greg is aiming to carve 300 square metres of wood to form The Wall, a task he estimates will take ten years to complete.

The Wall in the Wilderness is located at Derwent Bridge, a short drive from Tarraleah.
