Many a visitor travelling along the Lasseter Highway has been fooled by the sight of Mount Conner. Rising 300m above the surrounding plains it is easily mistaken for it’s more famous cousin Uluru.
Mount Conner (aka Atila) was first sighted by William Goss in 1873 and named after M L Conner who was a member of the South Australian government at the time.
It’s located in Curtin Springs Station and it’s for this reason that it’s not readily accessible to the public. However, you can book onto organised tours which will get you up close and personal with the rock. Check out Curtin Springs Wayside Inn for more info.
