Curtin Springs offers several different tours and experiences so you can share the wonders of their home and get to know the history, the landscape and the connection to the land.

Paper Making Tours are a new way to experience the central Australia Desert, join a tour of the production process in the Old Abattoir and learn how to make a different range of papers.

Curtin Springs Walks are designed for those who are looking to step gently into the environment and to appreciate being in the landscape. The combination of ancient and vast salt lakes, different land types each with their unique features and textures, the effect of the changing light during the day and on Mt Conner in the late afternoon, are sure to take your breath away.
