Owned by multiple Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain, Katherine Outback Experience provides a taste of the Australian outback right on the doorstep of town with real life horse-starting 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 show. The kids love feeding the animals, whilst the adults are mesmerised by the team's horse and dog training knowledge, skill and patience. The show wouldn't be complete without some hilarious bush yarns and catchy Australian music from Tom's award winning albums.

Some free refreshments including cold water provided.

Multiple Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain's Katherine Outback Experience show 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. In November 2017, Tom released his third album 'Territory Time' that debuted at No.1 on the Australian iTunes Country Music Chart. The first song released, 'Never Never Land' went on to win two Golden Guitar awards (highest accolade in Australian Country Music) at the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Awards for Toyota Heritage Song of the Year and CMC Video Clip of the Year. Tom’s passion for 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 the team start a young untrained horse, work the cattle dogs and sing a few Aussie anthems, often from the saddle. 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.
