Woodlands Cultural Community and Visitor Centre

Welcome to Ngadju Country

For many travellers Norseman is just a fuel stop, before continuing North, South or East. However, the Woodlands Cultural, Community and Visitor Centre encourages visitors to consider learning about Ngadju Country, or visiting more locations around Norseman and the Shire of Dundas. A giant map greets you with information about places to stop across the Nullarbor and the Centre also works with Norseman Historical Museum to curate a small rotating display of items.
