"Wall In The Wilderness"

The small community of Derwent Bridge deserves its place on the map with the relatively new attraction, the Wall In The Wilderness. If the art of wood carving, and the history of Tasmania are of interest, then a stop here will blow your mind. Inside purpose-built buildings, a local woodcarver is carving 3 metre high panels of stories depicting the early days of the area, timber felling, the hydro, farming etc. The detail, down to the veins in the hands of the people depicted, is amazing. Also in town is the Derwent Bridge Bridge Hotel, an impressive ski-lodge type hotel with comforting open fires blazing on cooler days. This is a much better eating option to the cafe at nearby Lake St Clair, which is poor quality and overpriced, and full of tourists!!
