The day after the family flew back to the UK, we joined Jude’s sister and brother-in-law (Annette and Jock) in Denmark. Denmark is in the south west of Western Australia, not the one in Europe! We went to the Rivermouth Caravan Park where we had a powered site next to Annette and Jock who had come down with their camper trailer. Jude’s mum and dad used to stay here regularly and it was easy to see why they loved it so much. Situated right on the banks of the river which was teaming with wildlife, particularly the Australian Pelican.
We had a great six days of fun,laughter and exploration. We cooked and ate our evening meals at the camp kitchen which was very well equipped and took picnic lunches out on day trips. We did however have a couple of meals out. The first being fish and chips from Denmark town and the food was so yummy. The second was at a cafe in Albany next to the Anzac Museum. Again,very yummy food and good prices. We visited the Treetops Walk in Walpole, Greens Pool which was so beautiful, drove to Albany to view the Anzac Museum which was very poignant and informative. We also had a wonderful morning in Mount Barker catching up with long time family friends, Kaye and Darryl. We hadn’t seen them for a few years and it was great spending time with them. We also played games, chatted, went for walks, got up early to view the magnificent sunrise and generally chilled out and relaxed.
On the most part we had very good weather but there were a couple of days where it was quite humid. The forecast kept indicating possible rain and thunderstorms but we didn’t get any such thing. Too soon and our time together was at an end and we made our way back to Perth. We would thoroughly recommend a visit to Denmark and surrounding areas. We hope our pictures whet your appetite to head on down in the not too distant future.
One thought on “Denmark…….Western Australia, not Europe!!”
Stayed at same CP for a week when kids were little. Great memories. Beautiful place Demark and surrounding places.
