Visit the South Coast's "Premier" holiday destination
'Where the forest meets the sea'
Strickland Street - heart of the town.
The town of Denmark is surrounded by hills and karri forests. It spreads along the western bank of the lower Denmark River and the Wilson Inlet to Ocean Beach. Further scenic beauty is provided by the rugged coastline with its beaches and headlands.
Since its foundation in 1895 as a timber town it has also supported fishing, potato growing, dairy farming, fruit growing and now wineries and the tourist industry.
It was the inaugural winner of the prestigious 'Top Tourist Town' title in 1990. There have also been subsequent awards as the state's tidiest town and also the coveted national award - Australia's Tidiest Town 1998 - after being a finalist in the previous two years.
Denmark is South Coast Central
Denmark, central to all the magnificent features of the South Coast, is well equipped to cater for visitors and looks forward to welcoming you. Easy and quick access to Albany, Mt Barker and Walpole. Even Pemberton and the Stirling Ranges are only 90 minutes away. Make Denmark your base to explore the wineries and outstanding natural features of the South Coast.
