The Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery

THE TIGER ROOM is back and better than ever with Art, Experiences, Film, Installations and a glimpse into the Tasmanian story.

About

EXPLORE the NEW TIGER ROOM in the redeveloped Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery. Don’t be surprised if you hear the growls of animals coming from this room which conveys the history and mythology of the Thylacine and its road to extinction. The gallery boasts six beautiful art galleries, children’s rooms, installations, a Movie Room and a fantastic shop full of Tasmanian art, craft and products. The Wilderness Gallery tells the stories of Tasmania and is a perfect way to spend a few hours with the family.

Six galleries are dedicated Tasmanian artists including wonderful photographs by Peter Dombrovskis. Current exhibitions are listed on the gallery website at www.wildernessgallery.com.au

Current exhibitions include:

  • THE TIGER ROOM – artworks by David Hurst, Fyona Storer, Richard Onn, Darryl Rogers, Tom Hounslow, Barry Smith – sculptures in mixed media
  • PETER DOMBROVSKIS GALLERY – a tribute to one of the world’s great photographers
  • CHILDREN’S ROOM – with a mural by cartoonist, Jon Kudelka this is an awesome space for kids with a Devil’s Den, books, puzzles and room to relax
  • THE DARK ROOM – a nod to the history of the gallery, this room takes us back in time. It’s a mix of the old with a touch of the contemporary; make the mechanical swan fly, investigate our geology and explore a room full of bones, feathers and fur
  • THE MOVIE ROOM – Watch this incredible film about Peter Dombrovskis; Wildness by Scott Millwood is not to be missed.
  • GALLERIES TWO, THREE AND SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT contain extraordinary work from our annual Exhibition Program which change every four months. For details of the latest exhibitions please visit the website or Facebook page.
  • THE DRAWING ROOM – A place to draw. Take some time out to sketch, draw or write about your experience on the mountain and join the visitor gallery.
  • THE GALLERY SHOP includes a vast array of Tasmanian made products, arts and crafts, books, toys and curiosities. Surrounded by a massive art installation this is a space to spend time in and explore.

“Cradle Mountain is a unique and spectacular location,

the Wilderness Gallery has added another dimension to the visitor’s experience of our wild world.”

Senator Bob Brown 2003

Wood fires keep the galleries toasty warm, while the adjoining gallery shop is a warm and inviting place to take respite from site seeing and bush walking. Visitors can browse and buy photographic prints, fine craft, art and design from both emerging and established Tasmanian artists and designers.  With honey tastings and a gallery shop bursting with Tasmanian arts, crafts, produce and design, visitors will experience a taste of the true local culture. Drop into the Hotel Bar for a whisky tasting or enjoy a meal in the restaurant. All are welcome to visit us in the gallery.
