Thank you so much for creating a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience for our guests in darwin in October. I am not sure if I mentioned that our organisation send a questionnaire after all of their events to rate the event and get feedback on all aspects of it. A rating of 4.5 out of 5 is excellent and our event rated 4.9 which is unprecedented! This rating is in no small part due to your show blowing them out of the water! Thank you for accommodating our guests in a fabulous location with a show that is truly one of a kind and which was able to bring the outback to life for them. Thank you for the attention to detail and managing to entertain both the young and old in a way that they will always remember. Thank you also for teaching them about an aspect of Australian life which most of them had little prior knowledge or experience of. Thank you on a personal note for being so easy to work with and accommodating of the demands which we placed on you. I truly appreciate it and wish you all the success you can hope for with your show and the business.

Onsite - Katherine, NT

April - October

At our Katherine venue, we can seat up to 140 guests in shaded tiered grandstands for our Outback show. This can be increased up to 240 guests for a variation of the show. We are also willing to provide exclusive shows at alternative times.

We are ideally situated just 7kms from the Katherine Town Centre and 4kms from the airport.

We are within 3km of the Contour Hotel and 36km from the famous Nitmiluk Gorge.


Offsite - National

Katherine Outback Experience has the added benefit of being able to take the show and entertainment on-road. We can provide a variation of our show to meet your needs within the constraints of the proposed location and timeframes. We can work in spaces with horses and dogs as small as 10 x 4 metres (that said 30mx30m is ideal).

We have previously provided shows at the Mindil Beach Casino Resort, Darwin Waterfront and Fred’s Pass Reserve Indoor Arena. We have also performed at numerous Agricultural Shows, Field Days, community playing fields, schools, equestrian grounds and even an outback roadhouse.

Depending on the size of the group, we can provide some equipment including seats. We have all necessary insurances and Risk Management Plans in place. We have also received advice from the NT Parks and Wildlife that it would be possible to obtain permits to take our horses and dogs into National Parks for events.
