“OMG Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a must see attraction when at the Gold Coast. The performance is so professional and full of humour yet also provides some education on our nations history. I recommend the VIP seating for the front on view so you are not neck turning all evening. The food is great. All over just a fabulous night for the young and old.

“value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

when purchasing the tickets they seeemd expensive. However the night turned out to be a success. Right from the prew show entertainment while waiting to be seated through to the Bush tea after the meal.
The show is a well paced and there is interaction with the patrons. The meal was excellent it was hot and well cooked. We had a special request which didnt prove to be a problem. The whole process ran very snmoothly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the Gold Coast

“Brilliant, although slightly expensive, family night out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you've been to the Disney "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show", then you'll know the score because they follow the formula pretty closely. It's none the poorer for it because how do you better perfection?

The action is well scripted and the horse-riding is really first-class. Dinner, despite being billed as "fantastic", is pretty much "OK". The free grog is hardly free-flowing, but then again, this is a family show.

Only gripe : For European wallets - a$400AUD (£250) is an expensive night out for mum/dad and two kids. But on balance, probably worth it.

“Not as good as it thinks it is....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Fantastic horsemanship without exception. All the riders are superb. Food is surprisingly good for such a large venue and the veg wasn't overcooked or soggy. Well done chefs.
But...... don't get there early. You are captive in a large hall with countless ways to extract money from you (tat souvenirs, photos, drinks etc) The "story telling" is overly long and aimed at children or people who never get out. Drinks with the meal/show are poor quality and fairly slow to be served.
Overall, would have been good value for $50 but the $99 per person is a vastly inflated price.

“A Must to see on the Gold Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We decided to go to see The Australian Outback Spectacular on our recent trip to the Gold Coast. It was truly amazing, entertaining and worth every cent. The food was delicious and more than we expected. We had a chicken Filo entree, tender Eye Fillet Steak followed by pavlova. Wine, beer and soft drink were part of the deal once in the arena seated. The efficiency of the whole service and show is amazing. Would definitely go back again on next trip to The Gold Coast.
