Overview

Tucked away in the sunken garden of the Commonwealth buildings, International Wall of Friendship ia a unique monument which is easily overlooked. Many nations have contributed to the Tasmanian community-from the construction of the huge dams which generate hydroelectricity to the highly visible face of the Hmong community each Saturday at Salamanca Market. Most recently the Kosovar community found a warm refuge from war and a special place in Tasmanian hearts. It is believed that no other project like this exists anywhere in the world, where to date 47 governments and local communities have gifted a plaque of friendship and peace.
