Set in Stone, the Daniel Herbert Prize
We are excited to announce the inaugural Set in Stone, the Daniel Herbert prize for anyone who believes they can do something interesting with a block of sandstone.
Sponsored by award winning tourist operator East Coast Cruises and the Tasmanian Wool Centre the prize is limited to Tasmanian residents and open to non artists and artists alike.


Ross's world famous, iconic colonial convict built sandstone bridge and surrounding buildings are part of our Tasmanian tourist draw card, a must see on the built heritage bucket list.

The Ross Bridge was constructed in 1836 by convict labour. One of those labourers, stone mason Daniel Herbert, carved icons into the arches of the bridge which depicted faces of famous people of the times, animals and mythological creatures alongside decorative designs.

The Daniel Herbert Prize highlights the skill of the stone carver by inviting people to have a go and create a piece of sculpture to reflect and pay homage to the masons skills of the past.
