Great at any time of the year
Denmark in the Aussie bush
Ever wanted to be a bird or a possum and sit 40 metres high in a 400 year old red tingle tree? At Valley of the Giants you can.The walkway at Valley of the Giants was originally built so that visitors could do just that and at the same time protect the floor of the forest and the delicate root system of the trees. Unlike other tree top walks this...more
About 15 kilometres west of Denmark you will find Greens Pool in William Bay National Park. This stunning beach has fine white sand, crystal clear green/turquoise water and is calm no matter the weather as a ring of large granite boulders protect the pool from the breakers of the Southern Ocean. A gentle slope into the water makes it great for...more
Lights Beach is located west of Denmark just adjacent to William Bay National Park. It is in fact a series of three beaches each with its own special features.The famous Bibbulmun Track crosses Lights Beach. Unfortunately we had strong winds and squally rain so I didn't venture far from the carpark. You will have to use your imagination with the...more
If you love walking and hiking then this may be the track for you.It starts at Light Beach which is part of the William Bay National Park in the Shire of Denmark,WA.You need to be well prepared for a walk or hike as it is a very rugged part of the coastline..The Bibbulmun Track is a hike that can take many days if you connect up to other starting...more
Wilson Inlet is worth a visit. The water here is smooth and glasslike. It's also a place for boating and family recreation as well as bird watching.This place is less than a kilometre from town and easy to get to. The link below shows you that it is also a photographers paradise. We will be back!more
Greens Pool is most definitely on my top 5 beaches of Australia list! It is stunning!We have been here twice now and intend to visit more. On a sunny day the water is a beautiful turquoise colour and on a wild winter day it changes to blue.You cannot drive through Denmark and miss this beach!!more
We visited Lights Beach with the crew from VT as part of our 2013 Big Downunder tagalong car trip. Gusts of wind were whipping up the waves and the conditions were stormy.Still, it provided for some interesting shots.Now, back at home and writing my page, I have discovered that we missed some interesting sights such as waves crashing into Princess...more
The granite rocks of the sea shore form a barrier that breaks the waves and creates a protected pool with calm, crystal clear water. Since I'm not a good swimmer and hate waves that splash water into my face, this was the perfect place for me.The beach is perfect also for smaller children since the sandy ground descents slowly.more
The scenic Mount Shadforth Road, leading West from Denmark, offers pretty, though not spectacular views of the hilly landscape, farmland and forests to the distant coastline.Attention 2WD campervan renters, the road is marked on maps as sealed although it's actually a gravel road. Easy to drive, though. But don't tell the rental office.more
Hubby and I ate lunch here on our lightening trip down south in the build up for the 2013 big downunder meet. Just like any pub, the meals were big and relatively inexpensive.The good thing about this pub is the location. Across the road from the park and river, the Denmark Hotel is a nice place to chill in one of the outside alfresco dining tables...more
We drove to Denmark from Albany and arrived mid morning. Just in time for a cuppa and cake.Ravens Café right on the corner looked inviting so we ventured in. Well after our morning tea here we were comfortable and satisfied. The staff were welcoming, coffee nice and cakes tasty. I won't hesitate in recommending Ravens to anyone that asks :o)more
This park has a very pretty outlook, the river which runs at the foot of the town.
Paul and Marcha decided they'd give some of the equipment a try.
