Madura is located five and a half hours’ drive east of Norseman, on the southern coast of Western Australia.

Madura was settled in 1876 as a place to breed horses for the Indian Army. Today it is a welcome stop when traversing the Nullarbor. A number of private sheep stations are also in the area.
