Australian Outback Spectacular 3: Spirit of the Horse is Now Showing

Posted on Dec 12, 2011 by in Gold Coast |

Spirit of the Horse Last week, in perfect time for the Christmas holidays, Australian Outback Spectacular unveiled its third production, Spirit of the Horse—and it is a huge hit!

The AOS crew has done an incredible job balancing the old and the new, making it an entertaining show for both repeat and first time guests. The story has shifted from focusing on the role of Light Horsemen played in World War I to paying tribute to the legendary horse, Phar Lap.

“The new show brings to life the iconic Australian story of Phar Lap, a legendary horse that gave Australia courage and hope during the nation’s Great Depression,” Production Manager Shane Phillips said.

For those who have attended the first or second production, you can expect to see the characters you know and love, such as host Johno Johnson and quirky stable hand, Bluey, but you can also look forward to meeting new faces! And you can look forward to plenty of new stunts and trick rides such as vaulting and roman riding over fire!

The Experience Oz crew saw the new show last night and has not stopped raving about the special effects, the impressive horsemanship, the hilarious characters, the touching story and, of course, the delicious three-course meal! We suggest it to anyone looking for a fun night out on the Gold Coast!

To be able to bring you the inside scoop, Experience Oz interviewed Production Manager Shane Phillips about the new show. For a more in-depth review of the latest production, read our feature on Australian Outback Spectacular 3: Spirit of the Horse here. Enjoy the show!
