A good night out. We went not really knowing what to expect but enjoyed the whole experience. If going as a group, or couple, go earlier and enjoy the pre show bar& entertainment experience. Maybe with smaller children this would be a bit tedious, as the room was quite crowded, so arriving a little later would save the hanging about.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the show. A little overwhelming for the young kids at first but all were joining in on activities by the end. Will be defiantly be back to see it again. Loved it.

We really enjoyed the show - thought it was very well organised. My 5 year loved it but was getting restless for last 30 mins. Would recommend for a unique experience.

Great show for all ages. Food was great which I was surprised by being a mass cook-in for everyone watching the show. Entertaining evening not to be overlooked when you are on the Gold Coast.

We stayed in a motel not far from the attraction and they have a courtesy bus. Made for a fun night out with wine.

I had my first experience at Outback Spectacular and can say I will definitely be back! I loved the Aussie outback humour, the set up, the stories, the meal was amazing and the staff were polite and efficient. But the clear stars were the horses, dogs and riders. It is brilliant to see real horses with attitude, skill and passion... More

Fourth time to the show, looks like they are running out of ideas for stunts and now rely on screen entertainment. Previous shows sheep were herded by cattle dogs into corals. This show they pop out on the side for 20 seconds and go back in. The helicopter is very hohumm what again? The food was okay, it is doubtful... More

Loved this night out. Little bit pricey, but well worth it. Great souvenirs and pre-show entertainment....especially the dogs and horses. The show itself was very entertaining and the food was really great (better than I expected). Service was very good too. A must see, especially for international visitors
