We were driving from Alice to Yalura and stopped here for fuel.It was a very hot day so had a cold beer and a pie for lunch.The staff are very friendly and we stopped again on the way back to refuel as we were on the...

True it isn't afternoon tea at the Ritz, but they don't use their own cattle for burgers at the Ritz. The burgers were excellent too, any visitor the outback becomes something of an expert on burgers, and I am happy to recommend them. Nice outdoor seating as well.

My wife and I accompanied our adult son on a quick trip to the Red Centre and spent two nights at Curtin Springs. Only an hour's drive from The Rock, this typically Australian Outback property provides basic but comfortable lodgings with home-cooked meals served on authentic enamel "bushman" dinner plates under the bough-shed. Its great advantage is it is a... More

We stopped here for 1 night in our campervan on our way back to Alice Springs. Gratefully stayed for free as we didn't need power. What an amazing place in the middle of the outback, the sheer size of the farm is incredible! We did the Seit 4WD drive tour of the cattle farm so we got a real taste... More

My wife and I spent two nights here as a stopping off point from where to explore the Uluru park mainly to be able to experience some of the goings on at a huge ranch in the middle of the outback. We should have continued straight on to Ulara and stayed there instead. What we got was a motel experience... More

This was my third stay at Curtin Springs and I must say that it has gone down hill. The ensuite double room for $170 had no frills. Air con was damaged and shower head sprayed water all over the bathroom. The meal was the biggest disappointment. $38 for a thinly cut T-Bone from a Station that boasts it's beef. Had... More

After leaving Kata Tjuta & heading for the Stuart Highway, Curtin Springs Station was our lunch stop. Fairly basic set up but lunch sitting in the open Bough Shed was excellent.

Did not stay, review of meal and pub only. The place has soooo much character, worth a stop to break up the drive to from uluru. Burger with the lot was tasty and not overpriced for the location, beer was cold and refreshing. Would stop again. Classic outback pub ala William creek or Daly waters.

We stayed here overnight on the way to Uluru. As another reviewer has mentioned, the rooms are basically shipping containers divided up into minute rooms with absolutely no facilities other than an air conditioner and a book shelf. For this we were charged $120. Try and avoid stopping here if at all possible. The rooms at The Ayres Rock Resort... More
