Australian Outback Spectacular

proudly presented by r.m.williams – the outback outfitter. | taken by Sony NEX-7 – The other day I went to new evening dinner show filled with outback music, drama and action.

The show is celebrating the courageous spirit of the Australian horse and honouring the legend that is Phar Lap.

Australian Outback Spectacular’s Spirit of the House bring to life this iconic Australian story in a specially designed world class arena, featuring an amazing cast larger than life characters, stunning special effects and magnificent animals including the spirited Australian stockhorse.

The performances were amazing, a plot was superb, it had me guessing the whole way… it was so much fun!

It was nice to be a night I’ll never forget, sitting in the centre area, soaking up the atmosphere.

Perhaps the most special part of the show was the surprise ending… which the superb horsemanship with Australian flag. I felt like an Australian.
