On your arrival, please come into the store, sign into the COVID and obtain the information as to how the campground works, where you can set up and just as importantly, where you can't set up. Curtin Springs is a very special part of Central Australia, owned by a family who have made this remote place their home. Curtin Springs Wayside Inn provides 27 accommodation rooms, campground, fuel, store and great homestyle meals for visitors when they are exploring the region. We have a small number of powered sites and unlimited unpowered sites. There is no charge for unpowered sites. A coin operated washing machine and drier are available. Curtin Springs offers a perfect base from which to visit the Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon areas. ULP and Diesel are available. Good 4G Telstra coverage, we do have a small Optus satellite cell that gives limited Optus mobile coverage.

Great night sky view's. Stayed 3 nights, great hot showers only $4. Free unpowered sites, fire pits at each camp site. Great place to use as a base when going to see Ulura and other places of interest. Staff friendly and informative. Restaurant open from 7am last food orders at 7pm. We didn't book but booking might be required for rooms and powered sites.



Ok it's free, but with hundreds of people and a couple of stinking blocked toilets it's a health hazard. Fix the toilets or shut it down, what the hell are the NT Health Dept doing.

Best spot ever... FREE!! yes, free this far inland, lots of space for any size of vehicle, great food, drinks, atmosphere and service. Showers are $4 and you can fill up your tank for a $10 donation to a charity of your choice. Everything they have, sell and provide is a huge bonus for those who have come this far... I would definitely come back!!
