The show is piecemeal. Instead of a story with some Australian history, it's odd bits of history thrown in here and there and a contrived "story" that is weak, all over the place and, would be, to international visitors just a big jumble of strange visuals. Having been years ago to see "Heroes of the Light Horse" may expectations may... More

We loved the Outback Spectacular, enjoyed the music, drinks and atmosphere pre-show, found the food very tasty and so well organised. This show would give overseas visitors a valuable insight into important aspects of Australian culture and history. And we all got our own straw hats!!

Absolutely amazing show, highly recommend to everyone. Very well organised with military precision when doing meal service for a large Saturday night crowd. Very good food and drinks. Small criticism was we paid extra for Top Rail Service and the queue to enter Arena was larger and less organised than general admission. Again great night!!

Fabulous dhow enjoyed by all 4 of us young and not so young. Space is quite crowded in waiting area where photos are taken and drinks served pre show and this could be improved upon as could the shop area which was really crowded. The 3 course meal was good for the adults not at all a hit with the... More

Everything was excellent. Loved the pre show entertainment. Well organized and brilliantly choreographed to give a fabulous night out we had 6 people ages 6 to 70. Wont say too much just make sure you book. Was brilliant. Laughed, cried, clapped and enjoyed the entire night.

Fabulous show and good food as well. Need to book well ahead to be sure to get a ticket. It needs better signage but is next to Movieworld which helps.

Convoluted 'story' if there was one. Reasonable horse riding skills but not enough of this. If you like watching lawn mower races, a bizarre little circus with a fake elephant, and small children chasing cows then this is your show. Can't make this stuff up. We had seats in the front row and couldn't see much of the show for... More
