The Australian Outback Spectacular is a dinner and show package that takes guests on an unforgettable journey through punishing seasons in weathered landscapes. Featuring many of Australia’s magnificent and talented animals, the show tells the story of outback life and the Australian bush.

The transformative arena resembles an Australian outback town, and the 3-course dinner is a delicious way to experience traditional Australian cuisine.
