Aussie Ark is located on the outskirts of the Barrington tops in the Upper Hunter/New England area. The project will be set on 2750 hectares of land, generously donated by the Packer family and Ellerston station. It will be a transition from our location of our successful Devil Ark project, to Aussie Ark.
