Devil Ark Tours

Tours of Devil Ark are now available and run from September - May each year.  Devil Ark is two hours drive from Scone, four hours from Newcastle and six hours from Sydney.

The tour is fully escorted and runs for 2.5 hours and start with a tour of the Centre and the informational displays.  The tour will then take in some devil enrichment; a special form of feeding which encourages wild behaviour, interaction with joeys born at Devil Ark earlier this year and a rare chance to become immersed in the devil’s natural habitat by entering huge free range enclosures to witness wild devils in truly wild conditions. The tour ends back at the Devil Ark Centre where there’s the opportunity for Q&A with a Tassie devil expert. 

Tour groups are met in Moonan Flat at 9am on the day of the tour.  Follow the Devil Ark Supervisor up in your own car for a 10am tour start.  After the tour (12.30pm) the Devil Ark Supervisor will escort the group back to Moonan Flat.  Stop for a delicious lunch at the Victoria Hotel. 

There are loads of accommodation options in Scone, Muswellbrook, Aberdeen and Moonan Flat. 

Tour costs are $150 for adults and $100 for children (8-15).  Tours are capped at 12 people.  Please note that the road is dirt from Moonan Flat to Devil Ark and quite steep in places.  Once you have booked, you will receive an information kit with driving directions and advice on what to bring.
