Curtin Springs is a large working cattle station in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is on the Lasseter Highway, 85 kilometres (53 mi) east of Yulara. The property is 416,400 hectares (1,028,947 acres) in size. Mount Conner is inside the southern border of the property. Curtin Springs was built in 1943 and is owned and operated by the Severin family. It also includes a roadhouse, an inn and a campground.

In September and October 2012, bushfires destroyed over 250,000 acres (101,171 ha) of bush, nearly a quarter of its pasture land.[1]
