EXPLORE THE DENMARK SURROUNDS
Denmark is located on the Great Southern Coastline of WA and is surrounded by other idyllic regional towns:
- 5 hours to Perth

- 1.5 hours to Northcliffe/Pemberton

Denmark is a diverse and growing rural town. What was once an old milling town turned slow pace surf town is now an ocean side haven. It is slow yet alive, it is calm amongst the changing scenery, it is removed but not isolated. It is a place for the nature lovers, the explorers, the surfers, the fine diners, the foodies and the wine and beer lovers.
