Welcome

NORSEMAN

Norseman  is a major stopping point within the Great Western Woodlands for travellers to and from the Eastern States and is an ideal place to take a break on your journey.

Norseman is the major town in the Shire of Dundas and is situated 726 km from Perth. The Borders of the Shire are 45km North of Norseman, 50km South of Norseman, 165km West of Norseman (as the crow flies) and East until you reach the WA/SA border. Eucla is the other townsite in the Shire of Dundas and is situated 717 km East of Norseman.

Gold, put Norseman on the map in 1894 when prospector Laurie Sinclair stopped off to visit his brother on his way to Esperance. He tethered his horse "Hardy Norseman" overnight and in the morning was amazed to discover that it had pawed up a gold nugget. A bronze tribute to "Norseman" can bee seen in the town centre.

Shire of Dundas RV Friendly Park

Free Overnight RV Park in Norseman

The Shire of Dundas has allocated the area of corner of Mildura and Ramsey Streets for free overnight RV Parking, to encourage the number of overnight visitors to Norseman. 
Unfortunately a few issues have arisen with the current site, namely;
1. Non self-contained campers using the area
2. No public toilets available on the site
3. Submission of Change of Management Order application to include Recreation. In the meantime the area will be closed to RV Parking. 
Council has options to consider and, would also like to invite the community to give feedback on Norseman being an RV Friendly Town and the short term RV Parking locations being considered.
