The Australian Outback Spectacular is an amazing show.
It may well be the best show I have ever seen. It is one of those rare experiences where the show is actually better than the advertisement. The combination of amazing horse riding stunts and skills, historical comment, sensational visual projections with sound and visual effects and near perfect organisation, make the show an amazing event you should not miss.
If you are planning a trip to Australia, put this show on the Gold Coast on your must do list. If you live in Australia, jump in your ute, throw a swag in the back and head on over. Even if you have lived your whole life in the Australian Outback, this show will totally entertain you. Whilst in places it does give the Outback existance a romantic appeal that may not exist in reality, that is O.K. because it is a show after all and the commentators do acknowledge the hardships and difficulties encountered by people on the land.
A touching tribute to the Australian Light Horse that served in World War One is a highlight of the show. As well as being thoroughly entertaining, it provides intriquing and informative comment on the Light Horse formation, role and particularly, the famous charge into Beersheba in 1917.
