Owner description: One man's amazing tribute, carved entirely from Huon Pine timber, to the history of Tasmania.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The talent of this man is amazing. Greg's skills in achieving each panel leaves you in awe. Take the time to look at each panel and admire the dedication to detail. At first I was disappointed that we could not photograph the panels, but by the end I could understand that sales of the professional images of his work are what pays his bills. Don't miss this. It is also great that you can buy a nice glass of local liquor or enjoy a meal.

This place is amazing. It is a must see for anyone travelling to Tasmania. We walked in and proceeded to travel around the room. My two teenage children and I stood at the first wood panel and just stopped, stood still in silence and we blown away. It was like this every step we took around the room.
The wood carvings are amazing and so much time and effort has gone into each and every piece. The artist is so talented.
You are not permitted to take photos or film in the centre, but honestly photos would not do justice to the place. You need experience the carvings first hand.
This is a must see.

Well worth the stop. Immense in size and immensely moving. Greg Duncan is a phenomenal talent. We loved it so much we bought signed copies of both books about the project.

This place is absolutely amazing such a talented sculptor.
Every panel incredible.
Check out the detail of the coat and scarf just inside the door from the buttons, to the details of the buttonholes and even stitching around the collar of the coat.

Well worth a visit to see the expert craftsmanship and to learn of early life in the highlands. This was my second visit having been there about 6 years ago. I enjoyed it just as much the second time.
