Curtin Springs Wayside Inn

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

At only 100km east of Ayers Rock, Curtin Springs offers a perfect base to visit the Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon areas.

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.

Curtin Springs stands as a testimony to the commitment of Peter and Ashley Severin to both the pastoral and tourism industries.

We invite you to take a 'peek behind the curtain' to explore the wonders of our home.

Located just 100km east of Ayers Rock, Curtin Springs (the first Wayside Inn in Central Australia) 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.

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.
