Australian Outback Spectacular
Want to visit the Australian Outback but you don't have time to head to the red centre? The Australian Outback Spectacular offers a truly authentic outback experience from the corrugated iron roof on the arena to the 3 course Aussie BBQ Dinner. Receive your very own Akubra on arrival, sit back in the Aussie Pub and enjoy a refreshing beer before the show begins!
Last year the Australian Outback Spectacular 'Heroes of the Light Horse' show was the proud winner of Queensland's Major Tourist Attraction Award and thrilled thousands of audiences members from all over the world with their stunts, music and poignant stories.
This year the team at Australian Outback Spectacular have a whole new show to capture your hearts.
The Spirit of the Horse
The Australian Outback Spectacular will tell you the story of one of Australia's greatest legends whose spirit and determination still captures the hearts of many. The 'Spirit of the Horse' celebrates the story of the champion thoroughbred racehorse, Phar Lap, whose courageous racing career helped buoy the spirits of the Australian people during the dark days of the Great Depression.
This iconic Australian story is told using an amazing cast of horses and their riders with special effects galore and a touch of good old Aussie sense of humour. The story is set against a stirring musical score written and composed by Aussie country music legend himself, Lee Kernaghan.
It's then time to show the stockmen and stock women's playful and competitive side as they test the skills of themselves and their horses in a bid to outdo rival stations. It's a high energy show which will have the audience on the edge of their seats and perhaps even a tear in the eye.
Experience the Australian Outback on the Gold Coast
While sitting in the Outback Arena you will be treated to a truly Aussie experience as you sit back in a traditional shearing shed with corrugated iron roof, heavy timber settings, stockyard sand and native back drop.
The Area has been built to truly evoke the unique spirit of the Australian Outback and that's even before the show begins!
Once you walk through the entrance, pass the billabong, enter the Aussie Pub and pull up a stool for a beverage before showtime!
The excitement hits near fever pitch as you enter the the Outback Arena and take your seats before the show begins.
Dining at Australian Outback Spectacular
If you are staying around town you might not get the opportunity to enjoy an authentic Aussie BBQ but at the Outback Spectacular that is exactly what you'll be served up.
The menu consists of three ultimate Aussie favourites starting with a Queensland salad served in a flat bread swag, next a BBQ steak with gravy, vegetables and Australian favourite, Damper. Finish your meal with a traditional Pavlova piled high with berries, country cream and a cup of Bush Billy Tea. During your meal you can also enjoy a choice of beer, wine or soft drink.
There's also a vegetarian option for those who don't eat steak and sausages for the kids so that everyone is kept happy!
