Curtin Springs Campground

Curtin Springs has been home to the Severin family since 1956 when Peter Severin arrived with his young wife Dawn, their toddler son Ashley and 1,500 head of cattle. At Curtin Springs we balance beef production with being a million-acre wildlife corridor and offer many ways for visitors to connect with the spectacular landscape. Our hearts are deeply connected to this remote part of Australia and we invite you to take a ‘peek behind the curtain’ to explore the wonders of our home.

Located just 100km east of Ayers Rock or 360km southwest of Alice Springs, Curtin Springs offers a perfect base from which to visit the Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon areas. Or stay a while longer and ‘peel back the layers by including our experiences, tours, and hospitality in your travel plans.

Enjoy our authentic homestyle meals, and our lovely gardens, and take an opportunity to unwind in what visitors refer to as an oasis. The historic Bough Shed offers the perfect place for a cold beer, a hot cuppa, or a meal. Our 27 accommodation rooms provide options for singles, families, and groups in our Ensuite, Family, or Budget rooms.

We have 4 powered sites and unlimited unpowered sites available.

It is wise to book powered sites if you need them, however, we do not take bookings or reservations for unpowered sites.

Powered sites are $40 per night.

There is no charge for unpowered sites.

In recognition of the very high costs of providing water and power as a service to visitors, there is a small charge per person per shower for everyone using the campground, this includes both powered and unpowered sites.

You may have campfires in the campground, however, you must bring your firewood with you, as there is no wood available at the homestead area.

You may have pets in the campground, they must be under your control at all times. We cannot take any responsibility for your pet.

There is limited shade available and we have no grassed sites.

We have no ensuite sites or direct links up to water on any sites.

The nearest blackwater dump site is Ayers Rock Resort.

Curtin Springs stands as a testimony to the commitment of Peter and Ashley Severin to both the pastoral and tourism industries. Peter Severin opened his homestead as a key stop for passing travelers on their way to Ayers Rock. He and his wife Dawn installed petrol pumps and a small store to help Len Tuit start tourism in the Ayers Rock area. Looking at the area now it’s hard to believe that the Severins only saw 6 people in their first year here! They have watched the tourism industry grow ever since.

The Severin family offers you a real taste of the outback, with modern facilities and an atmosphere that people come back for.
