Norseman the Horse

On the corner of Roberts and Ramsay Streets, Norseman stands proudly as a reminder of how our town came to be. Local legend has it that in 1893 Laurie Sinclair, on his way to Esperance from Coolgardie tethered his horse “Hardy Norseman” up for the night, not far from the Dundas townsite. Upon returning in the morning he was surprised to see that his horse had uncovered a large gold reef which he later pegged, a catalyst for the establishment of Norseman. Come see this tribute to a local legend.
