stretches 936.1kms from Perth hills to Albany,passing through the Valley Of The Giants region. First explored by Dr Thomas Braidwood Wilson of the British Royal Navy in 1829. The Wilson Inlet was
named after him by Governor Stirling and Wilson named Denmark after a colleague, Dr Alexander Denmark. Denmark became established
as a town in 1895 when Edwin and Charles Millar built a number of timber mills on the banks of the Denmark River to process
the giant Karri trees which were felled inland and exported overseas. The town grew rapidly to handle the large labour force
required to run the mills which, at their peak, were employing 750 men and producing 90 000 super feet of timber a day. At
that rate of consumption the timber industry was short-lived and the mills closed in 1905. Only around 50 from 2000 people
stayed on after the closures but in 1907 the WA government bought the entire town and set up a viable dairying industry by
1911. With a temperate climate, Denmark's weather is usually cool. The Summers here aren't very hot, in Winter the coast is
affected by storms which bring much of the year's rainfall. The climate is very pleasant though, the town is slightly cooler
than it's neighbour Albany. In Summer (December to February), the average maximum temperature is 25degC with an average minimum
temperature of 12degC. In Winter (June to August), the average maximum temperature is 16degC with an average minimum temperature
of 7degC. 40km from Denmark lies the world's longest and highest tree-top walkway at over 600m long and up to 40m high.
The walkway gives a unique perspective into the forest canopy life as it meanders through the upper branches of these giant
Tingle and Karri trees. The attraction has won international awards for innovation including the prestigious 2003 British
Airways Tourism For Tomorrow Awards, beating 75 other international entries from 38 countries in the Environmental Experience
category. Do not miss this one, whatever you do. This is a board walk that winds itself around (and sometimes through) the
giant trees that give this forest it's name. There are plenty of retreats and stops along the way so that you may marvel at
the grandeur and power of nature around you. This attraction is located at the same site as the Tree-Top Walk and is simply
stunning and fantastic, rock and reef scenery encompasses Greens Pool a safe and tranquil swimming hole on the coastline of
the William Bay National Park. Protected from the surf and safe for swimming and snorkelling, the water is almost completely
transparent and has a beautiful turquoise green and blue colour. Close by are the Elephant Rocks, huge of boulders which look
like a herd of elephants on the water's edge, a very unique sight and well worth a photo or two. The inlet that helps give
Denmark it's character is, at 36 square kilometres, one of the biggest inlets on the south coast. It is ideal for fishing,
windsurfing, boating and water skiing. Walking trails which include a heritage trail, are featured in various places around
the inlet. You will marvel at the sight of hundreds of Black Swans gliding across the water. These native Australian birds
seem to flock here all year this area will provide you with outstanding viewing areas.
