Denmark Western Australia - A Local's Tour Guide
Be Aware of Swells
and large waves.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE
THE POWER OF THE GREAT SOUTHERN OCEAN

When strong wind blows across the ocean over a long distance, a series of long unbroken waves form. This is known as a swell.

As the sign at Cable Beach Reads:

"When two large swells combine, the resulting wave may double in height. If this wave bounces off a steep cliff face or headland to combine with another large wave, it's size can double yet again. Even during mild conditions, waves or swells may combine to produce a churning wall of water that can sweep people from headlands or beaches."

The 100 tonne boulder that lies in the middle of Cable Beach (near Albany WA) was tossed to shore by a wave such as described above.

BE AWARE - BE CAREFUL - BE ALERT

Always watch children closely, especially in unpatrolled areas.
