Australian Outback Spectacular (presented by R. M. Williams) is a permanent attraction situated around 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast (Australia). They have just finished a run of their previous show (Heroes of the Light Horse) and a brand new show has started from 6th of December called “Spirit of the Horse (with a tribute to Phar Lap)”.
If you are visiting the Gold Coast, this show should be a must see on your itinerary. Allow yourself 3-4 hours to completely soak in the atmosphere. With the gates opening at 6:15 PM for a 7:30 start, take your time wandering through the Outback adventure that the whole area is transformed into. There is a pre-show entertainment that starts at 7:00 which is a prelude to the starting of the real show.
The new show is dedicated to Phar Lap, Australia’s most famous thoroughbred, and revolves around typical life in the Outback. There are stunts, daredevil cameos and some tomfoolery. There is a three course dinner served during the show and a beautiful montage to Australia’s cultural history.
What is most impressive is the almost clockwork precision with which everything is organized. Around forty stockmen and stockwomen make sure that your meals are served in time, your pre show photos delivered to the right chair, and everyone has a gala good time. All this done in almost pitch darkness.
Our kids had a great time and want to go back to the “Horse Show”. Make sure you don’t miss it – whether you are a local resident or a visitor!
