Visited Outback Spectacular for an evening out. Absolutely brilliant evening, good food, great entertainers and entertainment, you are swept away by the atmosphere from the time you arrive, if this is the only thing you visit on the Gold Coast then you wont go home disappointed, a very interactive and enjoyable evening, will be reccomending this to everyone i know. We went top rail premium and got some additional extras, great value for money.

Ripper Evening.

We were taken to this event as a treat by our daughter and son-in-law, Spirit of the Horse with a Tribute to Phar Lap. Not ever having seen a live horse show we were blown away by this spectacular. It was entertaining, funny, sad and intriguing as they told their story with some amazing effects. The event also included a three course meal (quite nice) with beer, wine and soft drinks provided. We were in the top row but still had an excellent unobstructive view as the seats are tiered and there aren't too many rows. There was an opportunity to have some photos taken before the show and souvenirs on sale at reasonable prices to remind you of where you had been. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience and certainly different from the usual attractions. Even if you are not interested in horses this will change your mind. Worth every cent!

It seems expensive on first sight but the quality of the 3 course meal is excellent and when you consider the included drinks and the stage show it really is a great value night. Just don't get sucked into buying drinks before you enter the main arena. This was my second trip and my only complaint is that the preshow entertainment in the foyer is still rather poor - shame it can't be brought up to the standard of the main show. Yes the whole thing is corny for real bushies but given what they are doing in the space they have it's well done.
