Denmark derives its name from the Denmark River which was named after Dr. Alexander Denmark R.N. The Aboriginal name for the area is "Koorrabup". We have a range of holiday accommodations in the local area including holiday homes, holiday cottages and holiday rentals in Denmark.
Denmark is located some 400 kilometres south of Perth, where the forest meets the sea. Accessible by road and air, Denmark's popular appeal is based on its natural beauty, village atmosphere and year-round mild climate.
Denmark is a charming town, located on the banks of the beautiful Denmark River and a great place to stay in one of our holiday houses. With its rugged coastline and towering karri forests, Denmark offers its visitors unforgettable scenery and plenty of activities. The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk in the tingle forest near Nornalup is a must, and for the less adventurous, the Ancient Empire provides an excellent constructed boardwalk at ground level. Or take time out on the Walpole Estuary Eco Tour, bookable through the Walpole Visitor Centre.
The environment around Denmark has inspired residents to develop their arts and crafts and these are produced at an extraordinarily high level. There are artisans working in clay, woodturning, wood carving and sculpting, furniture making, lead lighting, glass fusing, watercolours, oils and acrylics, metalwork, quilting, chainsaw sculpting, bead and jewellery making, textiles, mosaics, photography ... and just about anything else you can think of! Many workshops and festivals are held to promote and celebrate this and none are very far from our holiday cottages.
The Denmark Wine Region offers delightful premium wines, from vineyards set amidst the area's natural beauty. The fine, high quality local wines have distinct, recognisable, regional characteristics. There are around 14 cellar door operations, with a variety of associated attractions including gardens, picnic areas, barbecue facilities and restaurants.
The standard of gourmet food offered here is equally high, and Denmark has a wide range of luxury accommodation while budget travellers are not forgotten.
Attractions for the whole family include animal, bird and reptile parks, boating activities on the placid Denmark River, a historical museum, maze, puzzle shop, berry farms, a cheese factory, four wheel drive and winery tours, and many wonderful walk trails, including the Bibbulmun Track.
The ever popular Denmark Markets are held monthly on the picturesque riverbank and attract people from far and wide, to enjoy a day browsing amongst unusual and interesting stalls, enjoying musical entertainment and absorbing Denmark's unique ambience.
The natural sweeping vistas and remote landscapes around Denmark make it a favourite getaway for those seeking tranquillity, a romantic interlude or a chance to appreciate nature. William Bay National Park includes stretches of inspiring coastline. Greens Pool, protected from the breakers by outlying rocks, is a glorious, safe swimming spot for families, rivalled only by nearby Madfish Bay, which is protected behind a small island. There are many other wonderful national parks as well as surfing, fishing and swimming beaches close by.
Around Denmark and William Bay National Park, ensure your camera is ready for the spectacular views. Visit Ocean Beach, Wilson Head and Wilson Inlet, or take a leisurely drive on the Scotsdale Tourist Drive or the Mount Shadforth Scenic Drive.
