Tasmania’s Gone Nuts 101 Adventure Run will commence on one of Tasmania’s most recognised and visited icons, The Nut, at Stanley, in Tasmania’s North West corner. The race will hug coastline, climb through Rocky Cape National Park and traverse rugged coastal bush and calming temperate rainforest. You will be challenged by diverse landscapes, encounter native wildlife and birds, and witness some of the most spectacular coastlines imaginable. In this part of the world, rolling green farmland drops over cliffs into the pristine waters of Bass Strait. The beaches are also as diverse as they are unique, with sections of long white sandy beaches, small crescent shaped bays and rugged rocky bays formed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.
Unfortunately due to the changing requirements and recommendations, and for the safety of everyone, the 2022 Devil Country Muster has been cancelled.
However, we are hoping to be back bigger and better next year.
Come on down to devil country, to the beautiful north-west coast of Tasmania, for the Devil Country Muster.
This year, the Muster celebrates its tenth anniversary! We are back to the full show, and it promises to be the biggest event we have ever planned! The show kicks off on Wednesday, and there is a lot going on right through to Sunday morning, with the Talent Quest, a dedicated Walk-Up Show, a Variety Show, the Main Show, and the Gospel Show.
This year's Muster will feature some of the great mainland and Tasmanian contemporary and country artists, including Adam Harvey, Amber Joy Poulton, Justin Standley, Dean Perrett, Aleyce Simmonds, Gina Timms, Mike Carr, Col B Smith and Breah & Shayla plus The Muster Band feat. Duncan Toombs, Chris & Viv Boys and local muster favourites, CoolTrain.
