A entirely monastic town founded in 1835 by two St Benedict priests - Dom Rosendo Salvado and Dom Joseph Serra from Spain. From their hard struggle the town New Norcia became a monastic settlement. The number of monks dwindled followed by the closure of The Aboriginal schools in the 1970's and secondary education ceased with the further closure of New Norcia Catholic College in 1991. To day the former school had became a museum the place itself is a tourist attraction.
