Created and designed by Greg Duncan, the Wall illustrates the history of the Highlands in 100 metres of timber carving, mostly in Huon Pine. After marvelling at Greg's storytelling in timber, the tour continues on to Rathmore House where guests are in for a treat - learning about the heritage and history of Rathmore House and surrounds, followed by a hearty lunch. A relaxing day in nature and beauty.

We are heading into the wild and rugged Central Highlands on the hunt for historic tales. After refreshing ourselves with morning tea at Hamilton, our tour continues onwards to Derwent Bridge. Greg Duncan's Wall in the Wilderness is one of Australia's largest artworks, and has taken over 15 years to create. Large panels of carved timber tell the sombre tale of life in the forest, and the display is quite awe inspiring. Exploring The Wall and Greg's artspace will be sure to make you hungry, for more history and context, and lunch! We board our luxury coach and head for Rathmore House, where our group will enjoy a relaxing and delicious lunch. The history doesn't stop there, though. We look forward to touring parts of the Tasmanian heritage sheep property, guided by our host.
The drive back to Hobart is very picturesque. No doubt this will be a day to feed the eyes, the mind, and the stomach.
