A great little rest place on route to Uluru, Kings Canyon, or Alice, S.A. border. Free camping available with showers at small fee available. Clean amenities and tea rooms. It is a little green oasis on a huge cattle station. accommodation options in these places are not luxurious but offer an wonderful opportunity to meet weary travelers on route to the worlds most amazing places.

We stopped here for an overnight stop. Free camping and only $3.00 for a hot shower. Flushing toilets, plenty of space, quiet campground. Interesting place to stop in, worth stopping for a drink, meal or just to have a look around and have a chat with the family on site. There are tours available, but we didn't have time for these.

Hi Martanand
You found lots of things to do during your short stay with us and maybe a plan to come back again another time and do the tours and activities that take a little more time. The biggest challenge of any holiday, trying to make all the things you would like to do, fit into the time available. I hope you had a wonderful trip to our amazing part of the world.

No fridge, no tv, no entertainment of any kind. Very small inside. Very overpriced dongas. Most expensive accommodation, for what it was, to and from Uluru. These dongas were very old, the removable ones left over from some workers accommodation. Management were not helpful at all, but the staff were ok.

Room Tip: Keep moving on, try the next place Mt Ebenezer, it was old but good value.

Hello Jean D. We offer a range of accommodation and camping options so that visitors may find the right option that works for their trip - the number of visitors travelling with them and their budgets. Yes, our accommodation rooms are all transportable buildings - as are all our personal homes. All our rooms have had significant improvements made on them over the last few years with new bathrooms, carpets, soft furnishings and fresh paint. Set in our lovely gardens most visitors enjoy the opportunity to take a break, sit outside and enjoy the really lovely temperatures we have at the moment and rediscover the time away from the technology! Visitors are more than welcome to store their chilled items in our large coldrooms. I hope you found some wonderful things during your visit to Central Australia.

We flew into curtain springs and were picked up at their airport. Good atmosphere, my wife and I greatly enjoyed the country singers. Good clean accomodation, staff, especially the ones from overseas were excellent.
Will be back.

Thanks centralwestsurvey, I glad you appreciated what we can make available in remote areas. We see lots of visitors you use our airstrip and stay with us, a great option for those who are seeing this amazing country from the air! Lyndee

A group of 23 people stopped here for a late dinner after a day at the rock. Food was very good and lots of it. People were friendly and prices reasonable considering where we were.
Very quirky little stop for a meal or a look.
