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

Recently stopped by Curtin Springs on our trip to the NT. We decided to camp there for two days as it is far cheaper than Yulara. Facilities were basic but clean, food was excellent and I enjoyed a lovely T-bone steak. The beer was a great reward too. I know it's expensive and I don't mind paying a little more... More

Good afternoon Longreach747 Thank you for taking the time to say something nice about us. We appreciate it when people do actually understand the logistics of living here and providing services to visitors in such a remote location. I hope the beer was nice and cold - as we've had some pretty hot days recently. I'll pass on your comment... More

Thank you for taking the time to put in a review. Yes, beer and fuel can be a higher price then some visitors expect, hopefully the experience in this amazing part of the world helps balance that. Our alcohol prices offer visitors an opportunity to purchase in various volumes depending on their requirements - from a single serve in the... More

We stopped for about half an hour here to get a quick coffee and top up with diesel before continuing in to Uluru. It is a very busy road house and appears to offer a grass roots caravan park at the side. The toilet and shower block in the car park appeared very basic, but I cannot comment further as... More

Thank you Dianne for taking the time to do a review and to say nice things about your quick visit with us.

We stayed on a powered site for six days and was great. $3.00 for showers who cares water is precious in these parts and they have to run their pumps and generators. Central to Ularu and Kings canyon and so much more down to earth. It was fun feeding mongrel the Emu.

Curtin Springs is an iconic outback location. The Severin family have worked the property since 1956 to transform a hostile wilderness into 1200 square kilometres which play home to around 2000 cows and three permanent residents. Mount Connor is located on Curtain Springs Station and is often mistaken for Uluru. It is an imposing and majestic landmark and definitely the... More

Having stayed at some reasonable accommodation and some very ordinary accommodation on our recent road trip, it was refreshing to stay at Curtin Springs and experience the 'outback hospitality' that was second to none! Comfortable and VERY clean cabin, good food served to us in the bough shed - we had breakfast in the kitchen on our last morning there... More

The property is immaculate and the assortment of signs are really quirky, check out the 'shiela's and bloke's' toilet block mural! They offer a free camping ground which is well maintained. There are photo opportunities everywhere you look.
