Situated on a fully operational property, Katherine Outback Experience is an approved venue for tourism experiences, school excursions and camps, complete with toilet and shower amenities and a camp kitchen. The show is located under a large 60 x 40 metre shed. We also have a small outdoor stage for live music performances.
The venue can also be hired for private functions including weddings, parties and corporate events.
The Stock Yards
The ‘Stock Yards’ is where the majority of action takes place during the show. The stock yards comprise the ‘Round Yard’ and ‘Large Arena' situated under a new large indoor arena.
Both arenas are equipped with elevated seating. For those who cannot navigate the grandstands, we have alternative seating options available.
Days in the stock camps were some of the greatest days our lives. Although at times mentally and physically challenging, it was here life long friendships were made and stories of courage and mischief were written – often around a campfire!
It’s easy to take for granted the many nights spent sleeping under the stars, waking up to the smells of dew and the sounds of nature all around.
Our vision for the Stock Camp is to create a place that forges friendships and memories. We plan to hold a number of functions including long table lunches and dinners, dances, concerts, sleep-outs and movies under the stars in addition to providing training for those entering the workforce on stations.
Currently the outdoor Stock Camp comprises of BBQ facilities, camp kitchen, campfire, camp ground, a stage, dance-floor and outdoor movies. Overtime we hope to add to the facility with a nature playground for kids and more permanent tents.
The ‘Workers Quarters’ will be our future shop front and showroom. Our vision for the quarters is to display and showcase historic photos, articles and station equipment to provide a sense of life in the Outback, in addition to stocking our line of merchandise.
The outhouse consists of four female and four male toilets and showers as well as a universally accessible disabled shower and toilet. The facility has increased our capacity to host school camps and large events right here at KOE.
