Katherine Outback Experience – Outback Show

Agri, Mining and Industry

From saddling a young horse or riding it for the first time, to training working dogs of all ages and personalities, this is life on an outback farm. It is real and it is raw.

Every show is unique and different from the last.

Tom Curtain’s Katherine Outback Experience celebrates the Northern Territory’s unique farming history and culture through real horse-starting and working dog demonstrations, live music and storytelling. The two hour Outback Show provides an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ experience like no other.

From the comfort of elevated seating under the shade of an indoor arena, guests watch and learn as the young horses and cattle dogs are trained for working life on the land. The team explain the psychology behind the training process, highlighting what can be achieved from a relationship built on trust.

Guests are also invited to pat and feed the station animals including the horses, dogs, buffalo, cattle and goats to name a few. The Show wouldn’t be complete without stories from the team’s experiences of living and working on the land, together with some of Tom’s original award winning songs.

A cafe and bar are available with a range of refreshments on offer pre and post show.
