Experience a "Devils in the Wild" tour at Devil Ark in the Barrington Tops

Devil Ark Tours

Want to get up and close with our devils? Well now you can.

Devil Ark’s “Devils in the Wild” tours are available monthly throughout the year. The tour is fully escorted by our Devil Ark keeper and runs for 2.5 hours and starts off with an introduction of the project and the Tasmanian devil over morning tea at our Interpretation Centre. The tour will then take you on a journey where you will see the devils in our free-range enclosures. You will be privy to enter a huge free-range enclosure and experience a rare opportunity to really get up close and personal in the devil’s natural enclosure to witness a communal feed to encourage wild behaviour. Finally, depending on the time of year you visit, you will even get the chance to hold and interact with our Ambassador joeys.

Tour Information: Devil Ark is 2 hours away from Scone, 4 hours from Newcastle and 6 hours from Sydney. Tour groups will be met by the Devil Ark keeper at the Victoria Pub at Moonan Flat at 9am on the day of the tour to accompany you to Devil Ark in your own car for a 10am tour start.
