Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Step Right Up To Hudson's Circus Extravaganza!

By Amanda Wright

Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, get ready for the greatest show to hit Mackay this year! Hudson's Circus is in town, and it's time to experience the magic, thrill, and laughter under the big top.

Led by the dynamic duo of Goldie the Clown and Ringmistress Jane De Goldi, Hudson's Circus promises a traditional circus experience with a modern twist that will leave you breathless and begging for more. With over 10 years of experience touring the country, this circus knows how to captivate audiences of all ages, and as they explain it, the experience starts as soon as you purchase your ticket.

With showbags and memorabilia, slushies and carnival-style food, the evening abounds with magical memory-making moments.

Goldie, the iconic clown who once graced the streets of Dreamworld as its beloved mascot, brings his unique blend of humour and charm to the ring, ensuring plenty of smiles and howls of laughter. And Jane, the talented ringmistress, guides the audience through a mesmerising journey filled with awe-inspiring acts and heartwarming moments.

But what sets Hudson's Circus apart is its commitment to family entertainment. In fact, it’s a family show right at its heart. Not many people would know that the iconic clown and dazzling ringmistress are husband and wife, and their two children are also an integral part of the circus.

"We ran away from Dreamworld to join the circus, and we've never looked back,” Goldie laughed.

When the couple met, Jane played the character of Spongebob Square Pants at the theme park.

“It's a beautiful lifestyle, travelling the country as a family and spending every day together,” Jane added.

So, what can you expect from Hudson's Circus? Picture this: Majestic Welsh Mountain Ponies prancing gracefully, Dromedary Camels strutting their stuff, and the Flipping Disc Dogz wowing the crowd with their incredible stunts. Hudson’s have kept the tradition alive with animal acts in its performance with the promise that their four-legged stars are treated as well (if not better than) their human co-stars. It's a menagerie of talent and excitement that will leave you on the edge of your seat, with jugglers, talented trapeze and rope artists, illusions and thrilling motorbike stunt riders.

And let's not forget the modern twists that keep Hudson's Circus ahead of the curve. From state-of-the-art AI technology in the clown car to Jane's pioneering role as a female ringmaster, this circus is always pushing boundaries and redefining what it means to be under the big top.

But the real magic of Hudson's Circus lies in its ability to transport audiences to a world of wonder and imagination. As Jane puts it, "Come with us through the magical world of circus," and you'll find yourself entranced by the spectacle unfolding before your eyes.

So, gather your friends and family, grab your tickets at the door, and get ready for an unforgettable journey into the enchanting world of Hudson's Circus. With its unrivalled blend of tradition, innovation, and heart, this is one show you won't want to miss!
