Bush Meets The Beach

The world-renowned Surfers Paradise beach is going bush, transforming into a bustling stockyard as a mob of horses, mules, sheep, dogs, piglets and a one-tonne bull pounded the golden sands to as part of the Outback Stockman’s Show, running from Thursday 2nd through to Sunday 5th of November.

Direct from the legendary Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame in Longreach, beachgoers will be captivated as a horse breaker and stockman will take the animals through their paces.

An initiative of the Surfers Paradise Alliance, the daily shows will give coast-dwelling city slickers a taste of life beyond the Great Dividing Range with an unforgettable showcase of outback skills, traditions and legends.

With our spectacular Surfers Paradise beach as the backdrop, this will be an unforgettable event that will engage and excite visitors, and hopefully inspire people to visit our outback friends.

Watch skillful displays of horsemanship and plenty of horsing around along with a talented cast of horses, mules, dogs, sheep and piglets!

Sand rather than dust will fly as audiences will witness piglet mustering, whip-cracking, animal tricks and hilarious bush-inspired antics as they become immersed in the quintessential Australian outback just metres from the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

Keep posted for more details as they emerge!
