Local Australian Geographic Photographer and Singer-Songwriter, Barry Skipsey presents his unique audio visual, The Red Centre Show every Wednesday night. Great Australian songs accompany the projection of over 400 images of Central Australia on the BIG Screen. Barry is a must for all visitors to the park. Every picture is a song in itself.
Barry has been a resident of Central Australia for more than three decades. The lyrics in many of his songs portray the colour and character of this diverse nation. Barry is a powerful singer and very engaging performer and is probably described as being a contemporary folk singer.
So what do visitors to the park say about Barry:
This year, while caravanning with friends we stayed at the Big 4 Park in Alice Springs. On the Thursday night the park entertainment was Barry Skipsey. From the moment we entered the “Shed” we were captivated. Barry has an uncanny ability to be able to entertain and involve an audience with his singing (mainly his own songs), and his story telling, not to mention the magnificent visual presentation of his photographs of this great country. Walking back to our caravans after the show and talking to others who had attended, it was clear that he had made a lot of people very happy that night, maybe it had something to do with final part of his show and the audience involvement in a great rendition of “Give me a home among the Gun Trees”. It truly was a great night. Keep up the good work Barry.

We were fortunate to be part of your ‘family’ at the Big 4 in Alice Springs. We bought two of your albums and since then they have been playing constantly in the car. We are all completely hooked on Barry Skipsey and the five of us are singing along to your songs. As we climbed Kings Canyon the boys were singing “If you never, never go…”, each time we get into the car we start with, “All aboard…”, as I walked around Uluru “I need these red rocks..”. We love your music and your photography and the stories that accompany them. Thank you for your inspiration and for adding to our Northern Territory experience. You have become part of the story of our journey. So many of your songs resonate with us.
