Give yourself the time to visit this historical site. Suggest overnight at Cocklebiddy. You will need a 4WD with air compressor to re-inflate your tyres after the soft sand section. Learn about the family with 10 kids raised there!

Did not phone ahead as we weren't staying , but road closed at the highway, so should have. Disappointed. This is 450 k from Norseman so why trip adviser has it as something to do in Norseman I don't know. There's a lot to see within 40 k of the town anyway.

Eyre Bird Observatory is located in the renovated Eyre Telegraph Post. It has a unique character and even has its own time zone an hour ahead of Perth. The accommodation is simple, no ensuites here, but it is clean and comfortable and the wardens are very warm and welcoming. The attraction is clearly the birds, wonderful sightings of Major Mitchell's cockatoos but it has so much more. A real retreat from the world, no mobile signal, no WiFi, no television just wonderful walks, white sands and glorious dunes Accommodation is $90 per person per night without linen but all meals provided. Our food was tasty and home cooked with vegetables coming from the garden. A 10% reduction is available for seniors or members of Birds Australia and linen can be provided for a donation of $10. Booking is essential. The observatory is about 30 kms from the main road, the first 16 are relatively easy an end in a car park, but then it becomes more difficult, sandy, rutted and with steep slopes it is only suitable for four wheel drive vehicles with high clearance. However if you are staying for 2 nights and with prior arrangement someone will pick you up from the car park. Well worth the trip.
