What you'll do

Upon arrival at 1PM at my totally "off-grid" property Windgrove, we'll meet in my sculpture studio while we are introduced to each other. I will then guide you on a two kilometre long interpretative walk through 65 acres of reforested landscape where over 9000 trees have been planted. We will journey through the Peace Garden (where the southern hemisphere's largest Yoni/Lingam is located ), the Peace Fire and the Gaia Evolution Walk.

The Gaia Evolution Walk -- a total distance of 1.2 kilometres -- will take you through 600 million years of evolution where each metre you step equals 500,000 years. This evolution trail is unique only to Windgrove and not found anywhere else in the world.

Throughout our walk, sculptural benches (rest stops!!) and interpretative signage enhance the visual experience of Windgrove's unique landscape and seascape. Plenty of opportunities to photograph flora and fauna.

After reaching the Future Circle at the end of the Gaia Walk, we will return to base via the Peace Bus -- where I first lived for eight years -- and veggie patch to have a light afternoon tea in my home where I will talk about the paintings and sculpture within it.
Other things to note
If you are not staying on the Tasman Peninsula, please be aware that drive time from Hobart is a minimum of 1.5 hours. We start at 1PM sharp so please plan accordingly.

I'm an American ex-pat and have lived and worked in Korea, England and several states of the US, including Alaska. After a successful career in sculptural furniture -- work is in six museums -- I arrived in Tasmania in 1985 as a lecturer in design at the University of Tasmania, but quit my tenured position to pursue a creative life on 100 acres of coastal land now called Windgrove. As an artist who firmly believes in environmental and social issues, I believe that art should include, but move beyond a pleasing aesthetic. It must be transformative to a person’s life. And the earth’s.

Thank you, Peter, not only for the tour but also for the important work that you do. It was an unforgettable experience and a privilege to have you guide us on an emotional, physical and spiritual experience. Highly recommended and the highlight of our time on the Tasman Peninsula.

Peter was a down to earth, knowledgeable and passionate host who has a tremendous love for his land and for spreading awareness about social and environmental issues through his art. We were absolutely blown away by his talent, dedication and patience to his wood sculptures which each had their own stories and symbolic meanings behind them. Peter was so friendly and relatable, really taking his time to share his life and experiences at Windgrove, which was perfect over some delicious afternoon tea and scones. The walk through Windgrove was so therapeutic and you can feel the great pride and energy Peter puts into every single part. This was such a special experience that we highly recommend to everyone, especially those who would like to take in absolutely breathtaking nature, art and inspiring chats about history, peace, life and the earth.

 We gifted my parents in law an afternoon with Peter at this intriguing place. Their feedback 'We were treated to a very interesting enjoyable, entertaining, educational and inspirational afternoon.  We were very impressed with his carvings and sculptures, and the landscaping and planting and his connection with the land, the people and the environment.  Not to mention his beautiful house and garden and the gorgeous seascape and Roaring Beach.  He is a wonderful host, the eccles cakes, fresh loganberries and cream with afternoon tea were pretty good too.  He has created something wonderful with Windgrove.   Malcolm and Patsy

We thoroughly enjoyed this unique experience. It is a magnificent setting in which Peter’s sculptures shine. Peter has a vision for Peace displayed in an eco-sensitive way. It is well worth the trip. Brett & Ellen

The Windgrove nature and arts tour far exceeded our expectations! Peter is a visionary who has dedicated his time to creating a Sacred Earth Sanctuary and honouring and supporting the balance of nature. His artworks are extraordinary and defy verbal description, both in their exceptional complex design and craftsmanship, and their insightful and integral revelation of nature. Thank you Peter for your dedication to the energetic balance of Mother Earth and for your desire to share your work, knowledge and wisdom with all who are called to visit. Walking the trail with you was such a privilege! Cathy and John (Sydney)

Had a great day meeting Peter Adams and exploring his beautiful land/house and artwork. He knows so much about nature, evolution, land and animals that one visit is not enough. Can't wait to go back, highly recommend this tour for everyone
