The New Norcia Heritage Trail is a self guided walk around New Norcia.

The New Norcia Heritage Trail has two parts, a two kilometre walk through the town and a 1.7 kilometre river walk. Allow three hours to explore both trails.
Visit the Museum and Art Gallery which displays paintings by Spanish and Italian masters, gifts from the Queen of Spain and a fascinating array of artefacts and modern religious art. The gift shop provides an opportunity to purchase an assortment of souvenir items, local produce, art, books and music.
The trail also takes in St Gertrude’s, the Rosendo Salvado Statue, the Cemetery, St. Ildephonsus, The Flour Mill, The Old Flour Mill, The Monastery and the Abbey Church before finishing up at the Guesthouse and old Gaol. The River Walk explores the Old Well, The Moore River, Bishop’s Well, Bishop Torres’ Beehouse, The Norcia Hotel and The Monastery Roadhouse.
