Denmark - Cities, Towns and Localities

Home to the world famous Tree Top Walk, 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 offers a range of experiences as diverse as the scenery around it - visitors will find some of Australia's finest wineries, discover a wealth of creative artistry, and explore world-class natural attractions, enjoying a wide range of accommodation and facilities, to suit everyone from five-star travellers to backpackers, from singles to families.

Today, Denmark is the jewel in the crown of the south coast region: a thriving, diverse community which proudly proclaims its special place and unique environmental heritage.

The quickest route from Perth is via Albany Highway, travelling first through jarrah forest and then through open, agricultural land, turning off onto Muir Highway at Mount Barker and then onto the Denbarker Road. An alternative, perhaps more scenic, route is via South West Highway, which takes in the Blackwood River Valley and a lot of tall timber country, and passes through Walpole en route to Denmark.

Denmark Tree Top WalkAborigines had already inhabited the area for more than 40,000 years when, in 1829, Thomas Braidwood Wilson became the first European to explore the region, naming the local river (called 'Kurrabup' by the indigenous people) in honour of his friend, English naval surgeon Dr Alexander Denmark.

National Parks, including the world famous Tree Top Walk in the Valley of the Giants a 600 metre walkway through the canopy of an ancient red tingle forest, while the ground level Ancient Empire introduces the visitor to veteran trees up to 16 metres in circumference.

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, with the gentle summer temperatures and higher winter rainfall being particularly suited to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Merlot. The first vines were planted in 1976, at Tinglewood Wines, using cuttings from Mount Barker. The first vintage occurred in 1980 - though it was to be another ten years before a second vineyard commenced, at Karriview Wines, quickly followed by a host of new vineyards since. Today there are around 14 cellar door operations, with a variety of associated attractions including gardens, picnic areas, barbecue facilities and restaurants.

Denmark Tree Top WalkSome people believe that there is an 'art magnet' hidden somewhere in Denmark, because of the number and quality of artisans and galleries in the area. There are people 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!
