We stayed at Curtin Springs Station during a recent self drive visit to the Centre before flying back to Sydney and joining a cruise. We chose to stay Curtin Springs Station as we wanted somewhere less touristy than what is available closer to Uluru, somewhere clean and comfortable but in keeping both physically and spiritually with the Outback.

Good place to have a rest before the rest of your journey to either Alice or Ayers. Pies are $7.40 and pasties $5.70. Unleaded petrol $1.92 per litre. Showers and toilets available also. Nice staff there also.

For the slight savings you will get from staying here as opposed to Yulara, trust me it is not worth it. The place was still a total rip-off for what you get. The room wasn't all that clean, the top blanket looking like someone sat on outside on the dirt prior to placing it on the bed. And the staff... More

It seems that we couldn't do much right for MMwanderlust, which is disappointing for them and for us. Our bedspreads have a patterned appearance with have swirls of different colours and if you didn't know it could give the illusion of charcoal or smudges. The bedspreads are washed on a regular cycle and adhoc if need be. The Room Information... More

Great place to stay for a few days while exploring around Uluru - Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta - The Olgas, which is about 45 minutes drive away (not very far in this area). Clean, terrific price for the area and friendly staff.

Friendly staff, plain food, sweets etc. in shop, loos, showers, petrol - basic but all necessities covered. I did not have time to stop over but it was such a friendly place I think it would be fun. Currently one of the staff is rearing a joey whose mother was shot, so if you haven't seen one in the wild,... More

Thank you Pippa65 for making the time to say such nice things about us. We do know that some of our visitors are doing quick stop during their visit to the region, so it's lovely to hear that you found it a pleasant break. We encourage drivers to have a short walk and break during what can be long drives... More

We were dubious about what the accommodation might be like at this location but were pleasantly surprised. The room was basic ( we had an ensuite room) but clean and air conditioned which ended up being a must on a 44 degree day. The staff were some of the friendliest we have come across and could not do enough for... More

Wow how refreshing was it to see this amazing station just before you arrive at Uluru. The staff were helpful, friendly and warm and it is a great place to stop for a coffee, cold drink or to eat and to stock up on supplies before reaching Uluru. You will be impressed with everything about this place and make sure... More

We were with a group that stopped for lunch here enroute to Alice Springs. It was a nice oasis and we sat outside in a covered space built to allow the breezes through. We were served a nice sandwich lunch as we were told by Sylvia about life on a remote cattle station, the Severin family who have been running... More

We based ourselves in two budget rooms for a couple of nights late last year. Having stayed at Yulara before, we found the no-humbug alternative to mass tourism we had been after, gladly accepting the longer drive to the park entrance. Admittedly, we visited during a very quiet period. With no other guests in the budget rooms at the time,... More

Thank you TopEndExplorer for you review. Away from the maddening crowds can be just what every traveller needs. Hopefully, our accommodation layout allows for that option for most people, most of the time. I appreciate your comment on the tea/coffee in the store. It's one of those issues we face and question ourselves regularly about. The bottom line is that... More
