Denmark: Natural Beauty on a Giant Scale

From endless beaches to forests that reach the sky, Denmark’s natural attractions keep visitors coming, in spite of the holiday hotspot’s secluded location in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The up-and-coming, multiple award-winning town is set 475km from Perth, perched at the southernmost point in the state. Travellers can spend their days by the ocean, walking through hectares and hectares of verdant bushland or tasting world-famous wines right where they are produced. Holiday homes may be multiplying in Denmark, but there’s still a lot of space to run free without seeing another human being for miles.

Denmark’s Beaches

The beaches in the Shire of Denmark are characteristic of the Rainbow Coast: beautiful and quiet. Greens Pool, 15km from the centre of town, is a swimming hole surrounded by smooth rocks and bordered by white sand. The beach’s waves are hardly more than ripples, creating a safe swimming environment for families with children of all ages. Greens Pool, which is set within William Bay National Park, is also a popular snorkelling spot. From the swimming hole, you’ll be able to spot the famous Elephant Rocks, given this name because they resemble elephants swimming in the ocean.

More secluded than Greens Pool is the beach at Peaceful Bay, a long stretch of sand fronting calm waters, which are just as ideal for snorkelling as they are for swimming. Behind Peaceful Bay’s immediate waterfront are several walking trails, affording prime views of the ocean. Then there’s Shelley Beach, nestled amidst the forests of West Cape Howe National Park, a favourite spot for paragliders. Above Shelley Beach is a lookout, offering panoramic views of the coastline, all the way to the southernmost point of land in WA.

Bushwalking near Denmark

With so many national parks near Denmark, there are countless options for bushwalking. The Bibbulmun Track, a 1000km walking trail leading from Perth to Albany, alternately traverses the forests and hugs the coastline around Denmark. The trail is dotted with campsites and divided in numerous sections, allowing hikers to only walk the part they wish. The Bibbulmun Track goes through Walpole National Park, home to the Valley of the Giants, a forest of tall red tingle trees. Walk in the shade of the “Giants” along the Ancient Empire Boardwalk, past trees with a 16-metre base circumference. To explore the forest at canopy level, hop onto the Tree Top Walk, a 600m steel ramp loop. As these tingle trees are located in a valley, no excessive climbing is required to get to the Tree Top Walk, which is also wheelchair-accessible.

Denmark Wineries and Breweries

The shire of Denmark is a prominent Western Australian wine and craft beer production centre. In recent years, Denmark’s wineries have become internationally renowned, with sommeliers giving their stamp of approval to local shiraz, chardonnay and pinot noir. Travellers wishing to sample local wine and discover the region can take part in a variety of tours, from self-guided drives along Denmark’s Food and Wine Trail to group excursions organised through the Denmark Visitor Centre to a helicopter flights high above the wineries. Beer drinkers might prefer heading to Denmark Brews and Ales, where they can try a handcrafted beer as they take in views of the Southern Ocean from the brewery’s deck. Along with premium wine, the fertile region of Denmark offers succulent dining options, including Michelin-starred restaurants.

Family-Friendly Denmark Attractions

Denmark’s younger visitors can take advantage of numerous activities just for them. Start off your day at Denmark Dinosaur World, home to a large collection of dinosaur skeletons, including the only Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton in Australia. After visiting the dinosaurs, children can hold live reptiles and feed parrots. Next, head to Denmark Animal Farm & Pentland Alpaca Stud, where your youngsters can bottle-feed baby farm animals, hold guinea pigs, pet koalas and cuddle joeys, while watching older kangaroos hop around. For even more outdoor entertainment, you can bring the kids to Kwoorabup Community Adventure Park, an all-natural outdoor playground with plenty of wooden equipment, wooden music makers and even trees that children can climb up. The playground conveniently offers parking on site and is very close to several bike paths.

Getting to Denmark

There are quite a few ways to get to Denmark from Perth. Perhaps the easiest is to drive along Albany Highway or the more scenic South West Highway. A bus also departs Perth daily. If you prefer to fly, you can land at Albany Airport and rent a car for the rest of the 40-minute journey to Denmark.
