Denmark Western Australia - A Local's Tour Guide

Walks in Denmark, Western Australia

There are so many walks in Denmark, Western Australia! Our favourites are at the top - after all these are the ones we walk so often!

If you visit the visitors centre when you get to town you can pick up a trails map. Pretty much everywhere in Denmark is connected to a walking trail.

Remember, walking in the Denmark bushland is not like strolling down a sidewalk. There are creatures who also inhabit the countryside - it is important for you to take care. Always go walking with a partner, let others know where you have gone, and take water along as well as wear proper hiking attire.

Walking along the Great South West Edge along the Bibbulmun Track is truly a magnificent experience. We even have friends who moved to Denmark from Perth and WALKED the whole way. Extraordinary!

Check out the view from Monkey Rock out towards the cliffs of Nullaki Peninsula!

The water in the foreground is the outlet of the Wilson Inlet with the darker waters of the Great Southern Ocean in the background. Walking up the hill to Monkey Rock is quite a hike but well worth it for the view. There is also a magnificent view over William Bay National Park.
