What a beautiful hidden gem. Must see if your in Tasmania, just stunning. Spend time just sitting on the benches looking at this amazing art work. Have a coffee and then another look, you'll sure have missed something on your first look.

This is an amazing place to visit. The carvings' attention to detail is exquisite particularly the veins in the hands. Well worth a visit.

Well worth the drive to see this amazing woodwork, disappointing to not be able to take photos, but an explanation was given which we respect.

You will not be disappointed. Good fresh food. Scones to die for. Prices were not any more expensive than most places. Brilliant atmosphere and very clean.
