Katherine Outback Experience

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Tom Curtain's Katherine Outback Experience provides a unique window into life on the land in outback Australia.

It doesn’t get much more authentic than real life horse-breaking and working dog demonstrations entwined with Australian music and humorous bush tales.

There is dust and chaos, and things don't always go to plan, but that is part of the beauty of the outback.
A passion to share a piece of the outback was the foundation of Katherine Outback Experience, an outback show that entertains and educates guests about the Territory’s rich and colourful pastoral industry.

If you have ever wondered how a horse is broken-in or how a dog is trained to round-up cattle – then this is the place for you.

Multiple Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain is the horse training, singing, guitar playing star of the show, along with his wife Annabel.

Katherine Outback Experience operates from April to the end of October in the NT. From mid-November to mid-March the team takes the show on the road, touring regional Australia. Shows and services can easily be tailored to meet the needs of tour groups, business events, school groups and private functions. Just ask.
