Denmark is located in the South West of Western Australia, on the western coastline, with many beaches and a river inlet, and surrounded by forested wilderness and hinterland. Evidence of previous Aboriginal settlement has also been found in and around Denmark; there are a few museums in the region, which display and explain the evidence found.
Accommodation in Denmark can be quite expensive, however there are a few budget options, including a handful of Denmark hostels as well as a few caravan and camping grounds. Hostels in Denmark are quite spacious, with plenty of outside communal space. Some Denmark hostels even have a few pets -- a couple of dogs, cats, and the odd chicken. Denmark hostels usually have the option of dorm or private rooms, with shared or private bathroom. Breakfast is not always included in the price of the room, and this is worth confirming at the time of booking.
Three market days occur in Denmark each year, the dates of which change year by year; during the market days, accommodation availability and prices increase. If you're planning on visiting Denmark, it is worth checking online to see when these market days are scheduled.
Denmark offers great surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking opportunities. There are also good day hikes and bushwalks, which plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting, in the surrounding forests and national parks. Bushwalks vary from easy to very challenging. If planning a hike or bushwalk during the hotter months (December through February), please be sure to take enough water with you, and inform someone of your plans. Some national parks require you to sign in and record which trail you plan to follow, which allows rangers to track the whereabouts of hikers and arrange emergency assistance if required.
