Owner description: Ever wondered how a young horse is broken-in or how working dogs are trained to muster cattle? Prepare to be captivated as 2x Golden Guitar winner and horseman extraordinaire, Tom Curtain, provides real life horse-starting and dog training demonstrations, highlighting life on the land on outback Australian cattle stations. Without giving too much away, this 90 minute show is truly an authentic and hands-on experience complete with trick horses, buffalo, goats, brahman cattle and other station characters, entwined with outlandish station tales and boundless bush humour.

I was here for a Pete Denahy live concert. The setting is lovely and both Tom and his partner whose name slips my mind at the
Moment were very welcoming and friendly.

They provide a sausage sizzle with salads for our group at next to nothing and there were the occasional pet animals walking around the audience prior to the show starting.

I've heard about his gift with animals and on hearing he wants to bring the show to the Eastern states in the NT wet season I have offered my property as a possible venue.

This is a wonderful way to show - particularly town folk, about workiI was here for a Pete demahy live concert. The setting is lovely and both Tom and his partner whose name slips my mind at the

I've heard about his gift of working with animals- which would be particularly educational for town folks, something most would have no idea about. We county people are often amazed at how little city people understand about rural life but Toms shows will help bridge the gap.

By the way the stage is set beautifully with a background of tall palms and Tom joined the talented Pete at the end of the show. A wonderful night Thanks Tom & co.

We loved it, was highly entertaining and informative. I took a video of the horse snoring and have showed this to lots of people since and everyone loves it. We also loved the dogs and how keen they were to show us their stuff sometimes too keen with much laughter from the crowd. We are so pleased we went to see Katherine Outback Experience. Highly recommend it.

The whole experience was great from watching Tom work with an untrained horse, at the time explaining what he was doing, his work with the dogs, his singing - the list goes on. Definitely a NOT TO BE MISSED experience if you are anywhere near Katherine.

So Honest So True So NT Station Life. I am a local and took a French person to the show who was expecting an American Glamified Show. She Loved it as she will never have the experience of this. Talked to some of the audience , mainly Grey brigade and they too loved the experience. Do not go glamor and sparkle because that is not real

What a fabulous show. Tom took us on his journey as he worked to tame a rough bronc into a working horse. Next we’re the working dogs- a real winner with our family. Finished off with Tom’s iconic songs - even when standing on his horse. A real outback experience for city folk. Do yourself a favour and get along. We even bought one of his CDs and have had hours of fun singing along!! Even the teenagers!!
