History & heritage around Uluru

Stay overnight, take a tour and get a rare insight into the pioneering history of the Outback at one of only two existing regional cattle stations.

The remote stretch of Lasseter Highway is about as outback as Outback gets – red dirt, green shrubs and the looming monoliths of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Home to indigenous people for thousands of years, this region has proved a difficult proposition for pioneering settlements.

Stop into one of the two existing cattle stations of Kings Creek and Curtin Springs that have survived this long. Stay overnight, take a tour and get a rare insight into the pioneering history of the region.

Camel country

Experience the stockman’s life and see wild camel catching, animal handling and then end your day with an authentic serve of bush damper. Located at the gateway to Kings Canyon and the Watarrka National Park, Kings Creek Station is a working cattle and camel station with a history of pastoral life dating back to the early 1900s.

Station life

You’ll pass Curtin Springs Wayside Inn and Cattle Station on the way to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Originally known as Mt Conner Station, it was established in the 1930s and has been operated by the Severin family since 1956.

Take a real outback adventure into the landscape with one of the local tours and learn more about the history of the land and the running of a genuine Outback cattle station.
