Just over halfway from Kings Creek Station to Yulara is Mount Conner. The lookout has plenty of parking and is a terrific place to stop, get out, stretch your legs and applaud Mother Nature. Mount Conner is very impressive. As a bonus, across the road...More

Mt Conner is certainly impressive and we are very honoured to have care and responsibility for her as she guards our family members who are taking their long sleeps.

I really really like this rock. It’s quite a story how Mount Connor earned its nickname of Fooluru. Back in the days when it was hard to get to Uluru, none-the-wiser visitors would pilgrimage to Mount Conor thinking it was the real deal then ship...More

There is still a lot of confusion and we get lots of people asking the question when they get to us.... I think the fact that stopped at the Mt Conner lookout should be a bit of a giveaway!

It is worth walking to the top of the hill at this lookout, there is a surprise on the other side that you don't expect. A large salt lake stretches out below you. One side gives you a view to Mt Connor and the other...More

Thanks Penny M for your review. Yes, the vista of Mt Conner is wonderful. We ask visitors to respect our private property and by all means view the salt lakes from the top of the sanddune only, please do not trespass by going any further.

Mount Conner locates in a desert between Alice Springs and Uluru. There is no public transport. I drive from Alice Spring. As far as I know, Mount Conner is a private property. You can find local tour to Mount Conner in Curtin Springs. There is...More

I fell for the, 'look it's Uluru' last year... as my uncle pointed to it in the distance... it wasn't long until I realised it was the wrong shape. We stopped and took photos because even though it wasn't Uluru, it is a magnificent monolith....More

A huge summer storm cell came through last night - pretty spectacular - and yes it did hide Mt Conner for a little while! We put some photos up on the Curtin Springs Facebook page. It is always very humbling to see the power and...More

The view varies with the weather, but opposite the rest stop, across the road is a sandy walk up a short incline. From here, with your back to Mt Conner, you can see salt lakes.

When driving along the Lasseter Highway to check out Uluru, it is easy to mistake Mount Connor for it's big brother Uluru. All of a sudden this beautiful rock formation appears on the horizon, and many have made the mistake thinking it is ''The Rock''....More

Mount Conner is a mountain. It is situated at the southwest corner of the Northern Territory. Sometimes people think this is Uluru. Naturally it is quite desertic, and the trees and bushes, as well as the grass are growing with no problems. Under the earth,...More
