Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees are trees sculpted into World War One soldiers in Dorset, Tasmania. The 25 statues depict the fallen men they were planted for in 1918.A little out of the way but worth taking the time to visit.

This is just off the highway and certainly well work the 3 k drive from the turn off. Absolutely amazing skill and dedication to keeping some of the many diggers lives going. The skill in these pieces are amazing and I have never seen anywhere elsewhere. Chainsaw art

Hats off to this community who arranged for these amazing chainsaw tributes to the fallen when the trees from their memorial avenue were condemned. Admire the skill it took to carve these poignant reminders of the people that were lost during WW1. This is a lovely park just off the highway & well worth the visit.

An amazing collection of carved memorial tributes to 9 soldiers lost to the war. Nice little kiosk selling souvineers, coffee etc and clean toilets. Plenty of parking. Not to be missed. Free entry.

Hard to miss as it’s situated on Legerwood’s Main Street, with small picnic area nearby. Well worth a stop – Eddie Freeman is... More

Just down off the main road was this array of tree trunks all mucked about with a chain saw. Must take some skill to carve all the features out with a burly great instrument like that. What a great attraction for the visiting public.

This was a truly unique and wonderful commemoration to Australian soldiers from this area. A fabulous wood carver and a great part of history conserved. You should definitely duck off the highway and see them.
