Your Hosts: Alan & Christine Revell
Welcome you to Renner Springs Desert Inn
Renner Springs is named after Dr Frederick Renner (pictured below), he was the Doctor to the men working on the Overland Telegraph Line in 1871. Dr Renner's diary records a large gathering of birds and while investigating he discovered the Mud Springs. The Mud Springs can still be seen by an enjoyable walk and the large Lagoon still support a large range of the Territory's natural birdlife. Please review our menu "Activities" to view the large list of rare birds that can be seen by any avid birdwatchers.
The original "Roadhouse" was in operation as early as 1947, it was owned then by the Doyles then sold to Bob & Mavis London from 1956 to 1961. It was then purchased by Jack & Dulcie Chambers in the 1960's; sold to the Price Brothers, Ray and Cliff, in the mid 1980's; Paul & Brenda Sear in 1992; John and Judi Blackman in 1997; and the current owners Alan & Christine Revell are now the resident hosts of Renner Springs since 2008.
Each owner has added to the Roadhouse to make it as it is today.
We are a unique property and are totally self sufficient with our own power supply generated soley from diesel generators.
Renner Springs takes pride in the level of service and quality of product it delivers, and clientele can be assured of a memorable experience of hospitality and "a little bit of desert magic" whenever they visit.
