The 34-year-old Swede had been relishing the tournament at Lake Karrinyup, which has traditional stroke play across the first three days before the top 24 players then feature in a knock-out competition during the final round.
However, Noren will not get an opportunity to feature on Sunday, despite following up his disastrous first-round 74 with a more respectable one-under-par 69.
The world number 11 subsequently missed the cut by one shot, but vowed to return to the event in 12 months' time.
"I'd love to. The golf course is one of the best I've seen. I just need to learn how to play it," Noren said.
"I need to learn how to shape it the other way better.
"I played ok on Friday, but struggled in my opening round. It is disappointing. Especially being the top-ranked player."
Meanwhile, Australian Brett Rumford tops the leader board after posting a seven-under 65 in his second round to move two clear of compatriot David Bransdon, who just fell short of a course record when firing a 64.
Steven Jeffress completes the trio of Aussies leading the way as he sits a further stroke back from Bransdon in third place ahead of Saturday's third round.
