I would recommend this show to everyone. One of the best I have ever seen. Would recommend especially to overseas visitors. Staff friendly and service very efficient. Meal excellent. Your view would never be blocked by another patron which is a plus.

We had friends visiting from New Zealand who were keen to go to Outback Spectacular. We had not been for a few years but had fond memories of our last visit. We were all absolutely thrilled with our night. Four adults and four children aged 11, 10, 8 and 5. To be honest was not too sure about taking the... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we were allowed to visit the backstage and the actual show ground. If you purchased winners circle tickets. The host, Jessica, playing Kate in the show, will guide you through the production and introduce you to the animals up close. She will also introduce you to some of the key cast members like Gerogie and... More

Went with hubby, son, daughter and her hubby. Was the best I've ever seen. The food was great and they also cater for people who have allergies like me. The entree had mango in it and I'm allergic to them so they made a different dish for me. The 3 hours went so fast, entertainment was that good. With the... More

Food was mediocre. Show was boring and more of a musical with average singing and ridiculous jokes that weren't funny. May have been better for kids

Lets get the negatives out the way first..It says the doors open an hour before which they did but these were the doors into the shop, bar area with the intention that people will spend all their money before the show starts and enjoy some music, the staff in the shop are quite rude and seem to be only interested...

Took the family of four kids, some what surprisingly they all enjoyed the show. The staff were friendly, the meal was very nice given that they presented about 1000 at the same time. The show itself was quite entertaining with stand out parts being sections about Phar Lap and the Man From Snowy River. Bluey was funny As I said... More

A group of us went to show. We were greeted by very friendly staff and issued with our programmes and hats. We had photos taken and drink vouchers given to us. We bought more expensive tickets which were worth the bit extra as our seats were perfect. The meal was very good and served quickly with no fuss. The show... More

Had a wonderful time. The new show is well done but we had a technical glitch with the helicopter prop. The actors didn't let it bother them and if you didn't know it was coming, you wouldn't have missed it. Great Job. The Phar Lap tribute is entertaining and educational. Well worth the expense. The meal was awesome.
