RAINBOW COAST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA - DENMARK, WALPOLE, ALBANY

RAINBOW COAST
JANUARY 2018

Its been at least 15 years since we have frequented the beaches of Denmark and WA's Rainbow Coast and since our return to Perth, we've questioned why it had taken so long for us to return.

Denmark is approximately a 4.5 - 5 hour drive from Perth down the south-west highway. The drive alone through the Karri Forest Region is one of the prettiest, so there is no hurry to get to your destination. 

We rented a villa at Parry Beach Breaks. The three bedroom, self-contained villa was very comfortable. Situated between Walpole and Denmark, Parry Beach Breaks is a working farm and is close to Parry and Hillier Beaches.

There is plenty to do in the area. Whether it be lazing on the beach, visiting the Tingle Forest Valley of the Giants in the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, driving to Albany to see the blowholes, gap and natural bridge or just traversing the coast on one of the many walks.

We did the 6.2km walk from Lights Beach to the wind turbines. Part of the Bibbulmun Track, the walk offers stunning views of the coast.
