We had limited expectations of this show but we were completely blown away with how good this show is!! The moment we walked in the door we were caught up in the Aussie atmosphere where everyone was having a good time. The pre show entertainment was great and the whole venue is purpose built and fantastic. The show itself is... More

The stories in the show, the animals, the lighting effects, the characters were all amazing. And the meals were also great. How they feed approximately 500 people piping hot steak or sausage meals that taste great is incredible. From the moment you step through the doors the show starts and is non-stop for over 2 hours. Not a cheap night... More

Really explains Australia to overseas visitor's, and a little "okkerish" to me, and Australian. The Spirit of the Horse, with a tribute to Phar Lap was the show. The sounds and sights of Australia on the screen were amazing and made me feel very proud of this country. There were some very clever horsemen and horse women, who performed great... More

The best night out in the gold coast! Food delicious! My husband and I would go again just for the food. Entertainment terrific! Drinks were offered frequently! Seating area roomy compared to many other dinner shows. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great night out. Wish we had one in Sydney!

This is a must see event. We managed to get cut price tickets at a seniors expo last year and went with a couple of friends. The show was brilliant, the meal very good and the farewell by the riders when you leave much appreciated.

We heard RAVES about this show so we had high expectations. It was such a big tourist trap, which some people like granted. I just felt like a cow being herded away from my wallet contents. The pre-drinks were a sting (wine was horrendous and expensive). Flashing cups were dished out to the kids before you could say "hold on"... More

This was our 3 visit, 4 pairs of hats are our proof and reminders. The food is still fantastic. If you visiting Brisbane or the Gold Coast, you should include to visit this venue in your itinerary. It is an excellent real Ozy entertainment. It will take you to the Outback and will give you a glimpse about the life... More
