What’s new in Norseman?

On Saturday 25th August the Norseman community will hold it's annual Gold Fever Festival which includes the State Championship Rock Drilling competition.

The whole day will be filled with activities and fun to cater for all ages and everyone is invited to attend, especially visitors who may be travelling in the region at the time.

As well as the rock drilling there will be a wood chopping competition, foot races, music, markets, food and drinks, activities for the children and more. So put the 25th of August in your diary and come to Norseman for a great day out.

Norseman Race day

Norseman will be hosting its annual race meeting on Saturday April 7th at the race course on OK Road.

This is a great day out for all the family and everyone is invited to come and join in the fun. There will be refreshments and food available along with Fashions on the Field and things for the children to do.

The first race commences at 1.30pm and the Norseman Cup is the main feature of the day. So if you are in town on the 7th go along to the races and join in the fun.


The Gallery of Splendid Isolation is now fully operational and provides another great attraction to visit in Norseman. Lynn Webb (photographer) is very happy to guide visitors through the gallery and provide insight into the subjects in the photos. Of course visitors can purchase images that catch their eye or choose from his vast collection recorded electronically.

A visit is recommended and allow time to wander and enjoy. The gallery is opposite the 'Tin Camels' in the roundabout on the corner of Prinsep and Ramsay Sts.

If the open sign is out, Lynn is on duty.

Pioneer/Mining Museum


If you are visiting Norseman we encourage you to pay a visit to the Museum that houses a fantastic collection of items relating to our pioneers, mining and history over the years. There are really interesting displays both inside and outside that will appeal to all ages. A new exterior display relating to Norseman's railway history, is currently being created.

The Historical Museum & Association were finalists in the 2016 State Heritage Awards recognizing the contribution by a community group.

The museum is well worth a visit.

Open 10am to 1.00pm 7 days.

Main Street Imagery


The town centre is being revamped by a project that is utilising stunning images that reflect the lifestyle of days gone by as well as beautiful images of local scenery to enhance the buildings and fences along Roberts street. It is in its infancy but already a number of images have been put up and eventually the whole street will have images and relative information panels to form a 'town walk' for visitors to enjoy.
