Katherine Outback Experience

Posted: 22 January 2019

With two-time Australian Country Music Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain!

Get a glimpse into life in the outback with Tom Curtain’s Katherine Outback Experience. Visitors will gain an insight into the inner working of life on a cattle station through real horse-starting and working dog demonstrations, story telling and live music. 

The show features two-time Australian Country Music Golden Guitar winner  Tom Curtain  and can be described as more of an experience than a show or tour.  From elevated seating guests will watch and learn as the horses and working dogs are trained for life on the land – no horse is used more than three times in a show and no show is the same!

Visitors will also be invited to feed and pat some of the station animals including a Mule named Cecil, Buffalo called Bernie and a Brahnam Steer they call Tin Shaker.  If you are lucky you may even get to cuddle some of the baby farm animals.

The show also features colourful stories for the team’s experiences of living and working on the land, along with some of Tom’s original award winning songs.

The Katherine Outback Experience show with Tom Curtain takes place on an outdoor operating farm, dependant on weather and the farm animals available the experience is subject to change, and no show is the same.

Choose from the standard 1.5 hour experience, or the extended 2.5 hour experience which follows the same format only the team expand on aspects of the  show and it also allows for a 30 minute morning or afternoon tea.
