One of Victorias’ biggest tourist destinations is the ideal backdrop for this amazing event, where the best chainsaw carvers from Australia joined by competitors from Japan, USA and the UK...
Don’t be misled by the use of chainsaws, the sculptors wield them like a conductor’s baton, turning plain logs into amazing works of art,  they are artists ~ just with a different canvas!
