Visitors to Bruny Island Cruises are greeted by a sculpture designed and built by Tasmanian artist Peter Ingham Jones. Located within an impressive architecturally designed, spiral staircase of Tasmanian Oak, the artwork is a Huon Pine crafted whaleboat entwined with a whale rib created from local driftwood and brass.
With whaling a thing of the past in Australia, the sculpture represents a decomposing whale boat. The impressive 5 metre boat is to scale but two metres smaller than a full size boat.
For those not keen to climb the beautiful stairs, we do boast Australia's southernmost lift to ensure ease of access.
We don't like toilet queues and have plenty of restroom facilities including ambulant and accessible facilities.
