It might be cheesy; it might be a touristy. But the Australian Outback Spectacular is nothing if not impressive. With over 50 highly trained animals in the show, special effects, and acrobatics there is not a dull moment! Animal lovers will go nuts for this entertaining mix of comedy, impressive stunts and Aussie outback history.
The team at the Outback Spectacular whisk you inside quickly and get you into the spirit with a cowboy hat, then into their outback-themed bar to grab a drink, listen to some live country music, and a chance to meet some of the talented dogs and horses that star in the show.
The whole evening is very efficient. There is no waiting in line or hanging about; the staff settle you into your seat and pour you a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink and serve your starter before you have even had chance to take it all in. The huge arena has a great atmosphere, and the table layout is arranged so that everyone gets a good view!
As the show starts you see amazing stunt riders on horseback, quad bikes jumping onto the stage, and circus performers wowing the audience with their acrobatic skills. The incredible lights and special effects add to the atmosphere, while the waitresses top up your complimentary drinks regularly without interrupting the show.
Perhaps the most impressive parts of the show were the synchronised horse riders. Without giving too much away, have you ever seen a guy standing on two horses while jumping through fire?
A great mix of history and entertainment, the shows at the Outback Spectacular are perfect for families, groups of friends, or couples. There is a bit of singing, a bit of poetry and storytelling, as well as some amazing footage of iconic Australian outback landmarks projected through the arena. Alongside the complementary drinks, you also get a three-course meal included with the price of your ticket, which is served throughout the show.
