William Bay National Park
15km west of Denmark, WA

William Bay National Park covers almost two thousand hectares of Great Southern Coastline and is located only fifteen kilometres west of Denmark. (View the MAP of Denmark and surrounds to get your bearings.)

William Bay National Park has some of the most spectacular coastline including Greens Pool, Elephant Rocks, Elephant Cove, Tower Hill, Waterfall Beach, and more!

The centrepiece of the park is Greens Pool (right) and Elephant Rocks (below right) where rounded granite boulders create a reef stretching a hundred metres out to sea. Greens Pool is a delightful sheltered place to swim and safe for the whole family.

As it name suggests, Elephant Rocks looks exactly like a herd of elephants, paddling in the shallow waters.

These huge cracked oval boulders make a stunning sight as they gaze out upon the Great Southern Ocean.

To access Elephant Cove, you must pass between two of these massive giants.

The video on the right will walk you right down into the cove...

The Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk
in the Walpole Wilderness Area, Denmark, WA

The treetop walk is actually a series of lightweight steel trusses built on steel pylons to form a circuit 420 metre long leading over a deep and ancient Red Tingle Tree gully. As the gully descends, you ascend gradually into the treetops.

It's a masterpiece as far as architecture goes too. The framework allows a very holistic view of the surroundings.

The Ancient Empires Walk is the continuation of the tour through the Valley of the Giants. The Giants are, of course, the giant red tingle trees which are only found in this particular area of the Walpole Wilderness Area.

Some of these giants are over fifteen metres round at the base! There is a raised wooden boardwalk which winds between and even THROUGH the giant tingle trees!

The Wilson Inlet, Denmark, Western Australia
The Wilson Inlet, Denmark, Western Australia The Wilson Inlet is fed from the Denmark and Hay Rivers and is less than a kilometre south of town.

Visitor Comment:

"Aaaah Denmark, how do I love thee, let me count the ways, the ocean, the rocks, the velvety white sand, the tall trees the myriad stars, the silent dark river with it's reflection of moonlight, the little blue wrens, the light in the people, the hills, the miles and miles of empty coastline!... I am overwhelmed... ..."
