Katherine Outback Experience is located just a 6 minute drive from the Katherine Town Centre. Katherine is located on the Stuart Highway, just 3 hours south of Darwin and is within a few hours drive of some of the Top End’s most sensational natural landscapes including the Kakadu, Litchfield and Gregory National Parks as well as the magnificent Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park.

What To Expect

Tom Curtain’s Katherine Outback Experience celebrates the Northern Territory’s unique Farming history and culture through real horse-starting and working dog demonstrations, live music and story telling. This is not your standard run-of-the-mill type of Show, rather it is an Experience! It is raw and real, the same as if an audience wasn’t present. This hands-on experience is located on an operating farm, just 6kms south of Katherine.

From the comfort of elevated seating under the shade of an indoor arena, guests watch and learn as the young horses and working dogs are trained for life on the land. The Team explain the psychology behind the training process, highlighting what can be achieved from a relationship built on trust. Guests are also invited to pat and feed the station animals including the horses, dogs, buffalo, cattle and goats to name a few. The Show wouldn’t be complete without stories from the Team’s experiences of living and working on the land, together with some of Tom’s original award winning songs.  The Show operates April – October.

Katherine Outback Experience is excited to now be providing year round private and group 1/2 Hour and 1 Hour Horse Riding Lessons and Experiences for beginners through to advanced riders.

Not only are these Lessons/ Experiences educational, but they are also great for fitness, leisure and building confidence.
