Curtin Springs is a working Cattle Station owned and operated by the Severin Family. The family took over the pastoral lease in 1956 and still operate the station today. Peter Severin opened his homestead
as a key stop for passing travellers on their way to Ayers Rock. They installed petrol pumps and a small store to help Len Tuit start tourism in the Ayres Rock area. Looking at the area now it's hard to believe that the Severins only saw 6 people in their first year here and they have watched the tourism industry grow ever since.
Curtin Springs caters for the needs of the passing traveller by providing reasonable priced accommodation, free unpowered camping, powered sites, a licensed pub, homestyle meals and station tours. The Store is open from 7am until late daily and offers petrol, diesel, auto gas, soft drinks, ice creams, food, souvenirs, basic groceries, tea and coffee as well as alcohol both to drink in or takeaway.
