We stopped here for lunch on our way back from Uluru and was met with friendly service and great, well priced food. We ordered the steak sandwich and a hamburger which tasted just like we made them at home. The shop was also an interesting place to explore while waiting for lunch.

We pulled in for an overnight stay with our caravan and asked for a powered site. No water was available which was OK. We paid our $25.00 and were told that the staff will meaet us there. Well the sight was just enough to reverse your caravan in and not room to set up your awning.The person next door had... More

When Visiting Ayers Rock, Uluru. This is the place to Camp. Unless u are one of those 5 Star travellers who want to visit the outback but want your city sleeker habits. Free Camping as opposed to $ 100 a night camping in that over crowded so called Resort again......

We stayed at Curtin Springs for two nights in early July as part of a larger group. We stayed in one of their ensuite rooms. There was a double bed and a single bed in separate rooms and a shower and toilet in a third room. The rooms are air conditioned. The rooms were clean and tidy the restaurant was... More

We stayed with a group in May most were in the free camping but my husband and I stayed in the rooms .Small budget room with just a bed and air conditioning but clean, as there were only 2 others staying we had the showers virtually to ourselves and they were next to our room. Lovely sitting on the verandah... More

$25 for a powered site regardless of members in the family. Very friendly staff who were really helpful on check in. Heaps of room for unpowered, free camping. Didn't use the restaurant but noticed that they had a small but adequate range of meals available. Easy 1 hour drive to Uluru. Showers and toilets were fine and cleaned daily. Campfires... More

I was driving a small hired campervan and opted for a $25.00 powered site. Started in Darwin and was driving to Adelaide. On many previous trips to Australia I'd stayed in a number of caravan parks, but none came close to the filth and disrepair in this place. The toilets were filthy and smelled worse. There were 2 shower stalls... More

Good afternoon Stephen. Thank you for nice words about the meal, our kitchen staff work very hard to provide lovely meals for visitors. The Bough Shed area is used as our dining area, as well as the 'beer garden' type area, so often there are visitors just sitting. Most meals are ordered at the kitchen door near the menu board....

We made the unfortunate decision to stay at curtain springs recently. The $25 powered site that was allocated to us was very small no chance to put an awning out for shade. The stench from the dirty toilets was so overpowering we moved over to the unpowered sites just to get away from the smell. On visiting the toilets we... More

Oh Dear. A very upset customer. We can't seem to keep them happy at all. If we clean the toilet and shower blocks then the water leaves some mud, but to eliminate any damp areas, we'd have to use a much less efficient means of cleaning the areas, so it doesn't seem to matter which way we handle it, we...

We didn't stay here but we noted there was free camping for non powered sites. That's probably why there was so much demand for the food. Yes, like most tourist destinations the staff are mainly backpackers but their English was good and we found them most helpful and friendly. We had a 3 course meal, soup and bread roll, baked...

We stayed in the ensuite rooms which were formerly the 2000 Olympic accommodation blocks. They are adequate but small - the smallest rooms we had throughout our trip around Australia with a strange shower/toilet set up leaving no room where it is needed. Sadly though the answer to every question of the young itinerant staff seemed to be NO! Staff... More

I'm sorry these guests didn't enjoy all their experience with us and that they didn't the opportunity to discuss any of their issues with us at the time. I really can't explain the answers they believe staff gave them - we sell many more than 4 beers at any time in many different circumstances to many visitors on every day... More
