We went there for a Christmas party, and I had a great night, the only thing I didn't like was the entree, cold soggy wrap with not much in it. The main meal was good and the dessert just ok, I understand they have to get the meals out quick however just a little more thought. The show was really... More

Great show, the horses and riders are amazing. The story is wonderful, describing some of our history and the way of life out in the middle of Australia. The food is great, 3 courses and the main is a tender fillet steak. Well worth the cost.

We purchased the "Top Rail" tickets and found them to be really great value - the cowboy hats, themed family photos and... More

My wife and I attended this show Tuesday evening Nov. 11th. The show was "The Spirit of the Horse". What a great experience. Wholly Australian outback themed, and expertly and professionnally presented. The riders were highly skilled. the singers had great voices, and the whole show ran seamlessly for almost two hours. The meals were served in good time, and... More

This was our first here and we won't bother going again. If your into horses etc then you may get more out of it. It was a bit too gimmicky too much slap stick comedy that just wasn't funny. If you were a visitor from overseas Im pretty sure you would think the show was a bit weird and just... More

If you like the Melbourne Cup or into racing you'd enjoy this. For those of us who have no idea about it's history be ready to get weirded out. The cowboy hat is just straw. I don't think cowboys would wear that. Feels more like a farmer's hat. It's a history lesson about horses in Australia. There are minor stunts.... More
