After our wonderful walk around Lake St Clair, we continued to Derwent Bridge where we visited the stunning exhibition known as The Wall.
No photographs here as we were not allowed to take but this exhibition is absolutely stunning and highly recommended.
It is Australia’s most ambitious art project undertaken in recent years. By 2015 creator/designer, Greg Duncan plans to carve the history of the highlands in 100 metres of timber, most of which will be in our rare Huon Pine.
The beautifully carved works set out in relief sculpture depict the history, hardship and perseverance of the people in the Central Highlands and pay homage to the individuals who settled and protected the area.
Duncan is already known for the uncanny realism he brings to his work and his pieces are sought after by collectors around the world. Each metre of the panels, including horses, thylacines and foresters represents a month’s work.
We then drove to Tarraleah where we were staying one night. As we drove along the A10 road from Derwent Bridge I spotted something moving on the verge of the road. It was a Tasmanian Devil. I stopped the car just after I passed the animal and it remained on the verge. Luckily it did not run off giving me time to get my camera and get out of the car and grab a couple of images. This Tasmanian Devil was obviously suffering from the well-documented Devil facial tumour disease (DFTD) that this species suffers from and had large sores on its face.
We arrived in Tarraleah which is a small town which has been involved in the power generation business for many years with a large hydro-electric power station close by. We were staying at the Highlander Cabins right next to The Highlander Arms where we had dinner that evening. I felt close to home as I have a bar at home called The Highlander Bar!
In the grounds of our accommodation where some relics from the power station. The next morning we visited the lookout point at the top of the power station looking
