Welcome to the Shire of Dundas

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.
