GASP’s major art program over the next three years is Swimmable! consisting of artist residencies and the production of works of public art.


GASP! is approximately 3km from Montrose Bay to Wilkinson’s Point, a linear 9 hectare public space with landscape features including open parkland, wetlands and bird habitat. Connecting the foreshore edge is a crescent shaped boardwalk in 4 parts with three public pavilions.

GASP! hugs the waters edge along a linear stretch of public land from Wilkinson’s Point to Montrose Bay on the Elwick Bay foreshore, 10 minutes north of Hobart by car, 20 minutes by ferry and 40 minutes by bike.

Situated on the Derwent estuary system, at Elwick Bay, GASP responds to the lapping tides. The tidal waters produce an ever changing environment of mud flats and inundations. Bird and marine life come and go. The little blue boat ‘Robin’s Boat’ moored, just beyond shore, bobs on the surface. GASP! is already filled with atmosphere and natural incidents.
