Before entering Norseman from the south the traveler will pass some very picturesque salt lakes.
Norseman is midway between Esperance and Kalgoolie, junction town and the gateway to the Nullarbor Plain. The town though small has all of the essential services and is an essential stock/fill up location.
The quest for gold led to the establishment of Norseman. Today there are a number of small gold mining operations in the area but only the Central Norseman Gold Corporation can be considered a major producer. Gold was first found in the Norseman area in 1892 about 10 km south of the town, near Dundas, and the "Dundas Field" was proclaimed in August 1893 and a town site gazetted there.
A stopover at Norseman will not be hard to take.
