Congratulations to the Shire of Dundas, and a big thank you to Minister for Regional Development Terry Redman.  Minister Redman has just announced a $1.6 million investment, through the Goldfields-Esperance Revitalisation Fund, for a new cultural, visitor and community precinct in Norseman.

According to Minister Redman: "re-inventing the visitor centre will showcase the Great Western Woodlands and indigenous culture of the Norseman area through a number of interpretive elements."

The Minister added that the new precinct would provide a valuable cultural asset to Norseman and deliver an enhanced visitor experience that would support social and economic benefits for the region into the future.

This is a great example of how recognition of the beauty and importance of the Great Western Woodlands and Ngadju culture provides tangible benefits to the region.

As the Shire of Dundas proudly proclaims, Norseman is "The heart of the Great Western Woodlands".
