Denmark, WA

Denmark, 45 minutes west of Albany on the south coast of Western Australia, is located on the spectacular Wilson Inlet.

Denmark

There are beautiful and enchanting natural attractions that make the area famous, including towering karri forests, rolling green hills, the beautiful William Bay National Park (including some of the best beaches in Australia), and the spectacular Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk.

Denmark has dramatic coastal scenery, giant granite boulders and majestic limestone headlands. Choose from challenging or gentle coastal and forest walks, and intimate nooks and picnic spots. Meandering perennial streams and protected fish-rich inlets, along with paperbark trees, rocks and bays, are an artist’s paradise.

A wealth of precious wildflowers and delightful fauna abound in Denmark. Look out for the childish, woylie, ring-tailed and brush-tailed possums, honey and pygmy possums, and the ubiquitous Western grey kangaroo. Bird watchers will see dozens of bird species and whales and dolphins offer delightful off-shore entertainment.

Enjoy the night show of the glorious sparkling southern night sky, away from the artificial lights of the cities.

Denmark was named after naval surgeon Dr Alexander Denmark, a friend of Thomas Wilson, the first European to explore the area. Wilson visited the site in 1829, three years after Albany was established as Western Australia’s first colonial settlement, but the Denmark township was not established until 1895. Before European settlement, Aboriginal tribes had inhabited the region for an estimated 40,000 years.

Accommodation is available in motels, hotels, backpacker hostels and caravan parks. Denmark has a variety of restaurants, a tavern, and a number of hotels where you can enjoy a meal.
