Roll Up Roll Up The Circus is in Town
Stardust Circus is a travelling circus and when its is town, Stardust really draws the crowds. Australia's largest animal circus offers amazing acts, humorous clowns and they have recently added to their crew with two six month old lions and a three month old lion cub as well.
See the flying trapeze acts, some with no safety net or rope, cable attached, kids flying on chairs and off springboards, kids flying on top of a man standing on a ball. Crazy clowns in their taxi that certainly include the audience - laughter is heard along with oohs and arrgghhs. The lions are beautiful and all animals are obviously well looked after.
[ADVERT]This is a chance for the younger generation to get a taste of what we experienced as kids and for people like me, a chance to relive memories of when I was taken as a child. Stardust have a large range of animals, from a horse that sits on a lounge, to horse and monkey races, pigs that hurdle, and a dog that gives the clown a run for his money. The laughs are endless with the humour added by Stardust.
A young eight year old is one of the the stars of the show with his spins and strength. The ladies are wonderful at the hoop and rope and bars spinning mid air held only by their necks.
Truly magical day and to top this experience, Stardust have Cub Photos on offer for $40 extra. You have an experience of a lifetime, being able to pat the lion cub and have a photo as well. Be aware, you don't get to spend a lot of time with the lion cub, but its worth it I can assure you.
Elevated seats are the best along with the 1st and 2nd Row Seats, however part of the Ringside seats do get moved for the final act with the safety net being raised. Please respect Stardust's request not to take photos of any kind inside the tent.
They have sideshow alley and showbags, programmes and a couple of rides on offer at a maximum $10 each
