Destination guide

Denmark's trees are tall so the town can better wave "hello"

A sunny coastal town, 423 km southeast of Perth, Denmark has been a popular destination for surfers, families and sun worshippers since American soldiers were stationed nearby in WWII. A haven for environmentalists who love the sky-high red tingle trees, artists, shop owners with eclectic tastes and retirees who love peace and quiet, the town has a friendly, open-minded vibe that makes travellers feel welcome. Denmark vacation rentals are perhaps the most relaxing way to take in the environment. You'll feel right at home and close to Mother Nature all at once.

Things to do

Embrace your inner naturalist at a local nature centre

The most impressive attraction in Denmark is William Bay National Park, home to the family-friendly Greens Pool beach and the huge cracked boulders called Elephant Rocks. If you ever find yourself wanting a break from all the beachside beauty in Denmark, check out the Denmark Historical Museum, set in the town's old police station. Its collections include thousands of artefacts and photos that reveal the area's history. Or take a trip to the Denmark Wetlands Education Centre, where environmentalists have joined with local schools and artists to both preserve and celebrate what makes this coastal city splendid.


A beach for every personality awaits you in Denmark

The rugged coastline of Denmark allows for several beaches, each with its own character. In fact, though Denmark vacation rentals are breezy and bright, visitors often spend very little time at home. Instead, they're at Ocean Beach, popular with surfers, Lights Beach, where waves crash over rocks and pour down waterfalls, Greens Pool, protected by a rocky reef and safe for families with little kids, and Elephant Cove, known for slightly bigger waves and a gentle, sloping shoreline. If you ever get tired of sunbathing, the Denmark Markets arts festival is held 4 times a year.


Whatever the season, Denmark doesn't disappoint

Denmark's Mediterranean climate makes for warm, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. You'll never be too cold, even in winter, as low temperatures only dip down to 7°C. In fact, the colder months are a great time to book Denmark vacation rentals, since you'll likely find fewer crowds on the beaches and lower prices overall. Just make sure you bring layers, and consider finding a home with a fireplace. Spring and autumn are pleasant, especially if you remember your umbrella, and summer brings tons of travellers and tons of fun, with reliably sunny, warm days.

Natural highlights

A zoo's worth of species right in Denmark's backyard

Set on either side of the Denmark River as it flows into the Wilson Inlet, Denmark is a haven for a wide variety of plants and animals. Known especially for its tall trees, the town is home to eucalyptus marri, karri, jarrah and red tingle. You'll also have the chance to see indigenous bird species, like fairy-wrens, emus and Australian white ibis. Vacationers often come here to fish, catching snapper, salmon and abalone, but you can also leave your fishing gear at home and simply enjoy spotting bottlenose dolphins and seals offshore.
