Visit Denmark

Denmark is a dream destination for those who love to hit a trail. The Munda Biddi Trail for off-road cycling and the Bibbulmun Track for hikers both pass through town. Out a little further, Monkey Rock, Mount Shadforth, the Denmark-Nornalup Heritage Rail Trail and Wilson Inlet Heritage Walk Trail offer more adventures. Maps, track transfers, updates, and equipment and bike hire are available at the visitor centre.

Munda Biddi Trail

This 1000km off-road cycling route kicks off in Mundaring and ends in Albany. Around Denmark, it passes through farmlands and forests and hugs the coast.

Bibbulmun Track

Australia’s world-class long-distance walking trail stretches nearly 1000km from the Perth Hills to Albany. The Walpole to Denmark section is 127km long, with the final stretch from Denmark to Albany at 85km. Both sections offer excellent campsites and pass through spectacular forests, farming land, and rugged and serene coastal areas.

Monkey Rock

If you’re up for a bit of a climb, the 4km return walk from the carpark on Lights Road is up, up, up and then down, down, down! Atop the rock are spectacular views over William Bay National Park, Ratcliffe Bay, Ocean Beach and the Nullaki Peninsula. There are no guide rails, so ensure weather conditions are favourable for a safe climb. To extend your walk, continue on to the coastal cliffs above Lights Beach.

Stay

Denmark has some absolutely spectacular accommodation, with a range of architecture and locations to do the region justice. There are amazing places that bring sophistication and wellness into wilderness settings, offerings that are rustic and quaint, and caravan parks and camping grounds in beautiful national parks. Find short stay options through local real estate agents, or you can rent hotel-style chalets on private properties in the forest, or at the Rivermouth Caravan Park (right on the inlet). Plenty have wood fires, which are perfect to cosy up to in winter, with red wine and good tunes.
