Share Aussie history with your grandchildren

The Australian Outback Spectacular will embark on a memorable journey to commemorate the Centenary of the ANZACs, with the Salute to the Light Horse – High Country Special show launching on the 15 November. Having been to a previous version of the show before, we know it’s a great show to enjoy with your grandchildren. There’s plenty of action and an opportunity to share a part of Australia’s rich history with your grandchildren.

Salute to the Light Horse will continue the High Country Legends story taking guests on a remarkable journey to the snow peaked mountains of the high country as well as bringing to life one of Australia’s most stirring true stories by paying homage to the heroes of the legendary Australian Light Horse. It’s a show where your grandchildren’s eyes will certainly light up and no doubt, they’ll be engaged by the whole story and captivating theatricals.

Australian Outback Spectacular General Manager, Shane Phillips said as the nation celebrates the Centenary of the ANZAC this show is not to be missed.  

“Salute to the Light Horse will take our guest on a gripping journey as they experience the real life tales of the boys from bush who became heroes of war, as we recreate some of the most memorable ANZAC moments including the Battle of Beersheeba,” he said.

“A highlight of the show is the emotive tribute to the ANZACs where we reflect on the service, past and present from the Australian Defence Force all set to the incredibly special Lee Kernaghan anthem ‘Spirit of the Anzacs’.

“We are also excited to announce that a portion from every Salute to the Light Horse ticket will be contributed to charitable organisations Legacy Australia and Soldier On.

“As a show dedicated to delivering inspiring Australian stories we feel the Salute to the Light Horse show is a timely way to honor the Centenary, whilst still delivering all of the comedy, action and drama that guests have come to expect with each visit to our specially designed world class arena.  

“In addition to launching Salute to the Light Horse, we are also proud to announce a new partnership with the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre, who share our commitment to showcasing an authentic Australian Outback experience to domestic and international guests.”

“Thanks to this new partnership, guests who attend the show will also be able to visit our new WW1 Centenary Museum attraction.”

The original Australian Outback Spectacular was the first show of its kind in Australia and the ‘Salute to the Light Horse’ will take the unique and exciting evening dinner show to an all new level.

Salute to the Light Horse is a limited time special and will run only until the 31st October 2017, marking the 100th Anniversary of the Capture of Beersheeba.  Be among the first to see ‘Salute to the Light Horse’ with your grandchildren.
