Katherine Outback Experience

A taste of the Australian outback right on the doorstep of town with real life horse-breaking and working dog demonstrations, live music and humorous bush tales.

There is dust and chaos, and things don't always go to plan, but that's part of the beauty and charm of the outback as we know it.

There is something for everyone during the 90 minute outdoor show. The kids love feeding the animals, whilst the adults are mesmerised by Tom's horse and dog training knowledge, skill and patience. The show wouldn't be complete without some hilarious bush yarns and some catchy Australian music tunes.

Free refreshments including cold water and lollies.


Katherine Outback Experience offers a unique insight into life on Australian outback cattle stations, highlighting the important role of working dogs and horses in the pastoral industry. Working on outback cattle stations away from the modern comforts of TV and internet, inspired Tom to pen his first songs. This led to an award-winning music career including his title track from the CD ‘Smack Bang!’, written about living and working in the NT, which topped the Australian County Music Charts for several weeks. Tom’s passion for working with and training animals, combined with his love of music inspired him to launch Katherine Outback Experience in 2013, providing guests with a sense of what goes on in the outback, often behind closed doors.

Come and watch Tom break-in a horse, work the cattle dogs and sing a few Aussie anthems, often from atop of a horse. Children are invited to interact with the station animals - some of which are unique to the outback. The show is in a constant state of evolution, with new animals and acts being introduced on a weekly basis. No two shows are the same.

An experience not to be missed that will leave you with a greater understanding and appreciation of the everyday men and women who live and work in the outback.
