The gateway to Western Australia, Norseman is a welcoming sight after crossing the Nullarbor from the east. Norseman was discovered in 1894 by Laurie Sinclair. Sinclair named the site after his horse, Norseman, who pawed the ground uncovering a gold nugget. This led to the discovery of one of the richest quartz reefs ever mined in Australia.
Situated at the junction of Highway 1 and Highway 94, Norseman has the Nullarbor and Adelaide to the east, Perth to the West, Kalgoorlie Boulder to the north and Esperance to the south. The town is surrounded by beautiful, dense eucalypt bushland, with ancient rock outcrops and large salt lakes nearby.
Enjoy the breathtaking views from Beacon Hill, feast on a barbeque at Dundas Rocks, or view the historical collection. There are many facilities available for travellers, with thousands of vehicles and visitors passing through the town every day.
Shopping, banking, postal services, fuel, medical, accommodation and food facilities are provided. The tourist complex offers showers, toilets and barbeques in a shady, grassed area for travellers' comfort. There is also an Olympic sized swimming pool nearby for use in the summer months.
