We have seen this show (and the last one) on a number of occasions, bringing many guests from overseas and interstate to see a little of the 'Australian Outback Experience.' Unfortunately, our most recent visit will be our last. We had business guests from Germany and opted for the 'Top Rail' tickets to the show ($140 each). These tickets came... More

We watched the Outback Spectacular Spirit of the Horse with friends recently. This is an awesome show with spectacular horse riding and visual effects, topped off with a superb 3 course meal and drinks. All in a fully enclosed venue. In order to fully enjoy the show and not worry about traffic, etc. we arranged a bus pick-up through our... More

We came here with our 2 young boys and we were absolutely thrilled from the moment we stepped in to the moment we left. Each of us got a complimentary cowboy hat, and the souvenirs are simply amazing! The entire cast and crew were so professional and the choreography simply slick, while we dined on our delicious 3 course dinner.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this show, from the amazing talent of the cast, their horsemanship, their singing, the entertainment, the beautiful animals,the friendy staff and the amazing feat of feeding 800+ people with a beautiful meal and keeping our glasses full. We sat in the front row, and did not find the staff a problem at all, although if... More

There's too much extra "hoohaa" and not enough quality. If you book for this, DO NOT SIT IN THE FRONT...you will be annoyed by staff & guests walking in front of you. I think it would be better just as a show and no meal. The amount of staff it takes to serve up makes it noisy & distracting...totally takes... More

Highly recommend this show to everyone! From beginning to end it is 10/10. The pre show entertainment is fantastic, the food is beautiful and served so quickly. Your glass is never empty, whether you are drinking beer, wine or soft drink and the show is absolutely brilliant! A bit of everything. Loved it!! Will go again for sure.
