Approach to the Franklin River Picnic Area and pull off zone on the leftThe new Western Wilds is a journey of discovery through the powerful wilderness stories of western Tasmania. The journey will include commissioned artworks at key sites to compel travellers to explore western Tasmania at a slower pace to experience all it has to offer.

This commission is an opportunity for an artist to create an artwork that creatively interprets an iconic wilderness story. It should inspire visitors to stop and explore the site.

Franklin River Picnic Area is on the Lyell Highway about 25 kilometres west of Derwent Bridge located in the Wild Rivers National Park. It is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
