Also known as the Norseman Heritage Trail, it was first used as the original Cobb and Co route connecting the former Dundas townsite to Norseman and Esperance, the Old Coach Road now stands as a heritage trail for visitors. Featuring 10 different sites, the 28km self-drive trail leads from the Norseman townsite and out onto the Coolgardie-Esperance Highway, with historical interpretive stopping points offering a window into the harshness of early mining life.
The Dundas Coach Road Heritage Trail is a historic and fascinating loop trail. The trail features 10 key places of interest and each site features fascinating interpretive stories that help build a picture of life in the early years along the Coach Road.
This trail, which runs between Norseman and the site of the original township of Dundas, is easily done over a couple of hours and is a great way to explore a part of the beautiful Great Western Woodlands.
In spring, this area is lush and alive with wildflowers. There are many picnic spots, walk trails and each point of interest has interpretive signage so you can learn more about the life and times of the hardy folk who flocked to the Dundas Goldfields during the gold rush.
