Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame - Latrobe TASMANIA

Bell's Parade is the site of the Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame and Timberworks. It was here that the first world woodchopping championship was staged in 1891 and the sport was born. The history of competitive woodchopping is the story of Australia's pioneering bushmen and their families. Sadly, the unique culture and bush skills are dying along with the last generation to work the forests with an axe and crosscut saw. The Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame and Timberworks is the first national museum dedicated to this aspect of our colonial history. It is also an educational and entertainment centre.
