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 willing to work hard and clearly trusting their riders. They are a credit to the trainers and riders.

The music was wonderful and had me singing along to the awesome tunes of Australian artists.

Amazing show. Brilliant. Thanks again for the awesome experience that showed off the true essence of the Aussie outback!!

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 that we will bother to go again. It would be a great venue for a pirate show! Let's cut the corny Aussie stereotype and have some fantasy.

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
