Description

Come and see the tribute to the town’s name, Norseman the horse.

The story goes that in 1894 prospector, Laurie Sinclair had tethered his horse ‘Hardy Norseman’ to stop and rest for the night.

To his surprise, upon waking up he discovered that his horse had uncovered a gold nugget throughout the night leading him to find a large gold reef within the area.

The statue now stands in front of a park where the kids can play and discover an interesting piece of history.
