Just a reminder about our cancellation policy: We know that plans can change unexpectedly, when travelling in this part of the world. So we are as flexible as we can be with changes. For bookings made over the phone or email directly with us. As long as you let us know that something has changed and you won't be joining us, even up until the evening you are due to arrive, no charge applies. But if you forget to let us know that you won't be joining us, one nights charge can be taken. For bookings made online. Similarly, as long as you let us know that something has changed, then we will make a full refund minus 7.5% (which covers the commission fee paid by us when you make an online booking). However, if you forget to let us know you won't be joining us, then the first nights charge can be applied.

Curtin Springs – A very special part of Central Australia, owned by a family who have made this remote place their home. Curtin Springs has been the home to the Severin family since 1956, when Peter Severin arrived with his young wife Dawn and their toddler son Ashley.

Curtin Springs is over one million acres in size and stands as testament to the passion and commitment Peter, Ashley and Lyndee Severin have made to Central Australia and the pastoral and tourism industries. We invite you to share the wonders of our home.

Curtin Springs is on the Lasseter Hwy 85km east of Ayers Rock (Uluru), 220km from Kings Canyon or 360km of Alice Springs.

Wayside Inns are a name given to remote businesses in northern Australia that have long histories and have developed to provide a full range of services to visitors, many wayside inns are still family owned and operated.

As the first Wayside Inn in Central Australia, Curtin Springs offers a perfect base from which to visit the Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon areas.

Stay a while longer and ‘peel back the layers’ by including our experiences, tours and hospitality in your travel plans.

Enjoy our authentic homestyle meals, our lovely gardens and take an opportunity to unwind in what visitors refer to as an oasis.

The historic Bough Shed offers the perfect place for a cold beer, hot cuppa or a meal. Take the time to look through our family history and general information about what it takes to live in such a remote place, raise a family and run a business here.
