A true blue celebration

of our nation!


Featuring awe inspiring acrobatics, beer can juggling, aerial keg, 3 meter high handstands and (of course) standing on heads. This show delivers incredible acrobatics, plenty of comedy, iconic Australian songs and astounding circus tricks which guarantee an action packed evening.

Malia Walsh (Men of Steel, Urban Cirque),
Shannon McGurgan (Circus Royal, Circus Quirkus)

Farhad Ahadi (Silvers Circus, Gangsters Ball)
team up once again to create a power house of talent. Using quintessential Australiana to create unique acts and tricks, this trio amazes with circus you’ve never seen before.

'STRAYA is a tongue-in cheek satire concerning the evolving Australian identity. Told from the perspective of a 5th generation Australian, an American and an Iranian expat, each discovering what it is to be part of this Great Southern Land.
