Flowers & Birds of Denmark WA

the South Coast of Western Australia in Denmark, WA

Wildflowers & Waterbirds of Denmark

The south west coast, now called the south west edge is an international biodiversity hotspot with many species of plants, birds and animals found nowhere else on earth. The wildflowers sure are wild appearing in unexpected places - some only for a few days in the year. The wildlife is diverse with a flourishing forest life. Though threatened, the fauna still have a safe home in the Walpole Wilderness Area. If you're coming to enjoy nature, remember to respect all signs and warnings and leave it as you found it.

Wildflowers (Flora)

Denmark and the South West Edge of Australia is home to one of the richest floras in the world. There's always something blooming in the forests. In the winter months and into summer the colours change as each flower takes it's turn opening to the sun. Even the trees have their own amazing wildflowers. Each eucalypt takes it's turn in full bloom.

The wildlife along the Denmark coast is as diverse as the countryside. One of the top six areas in the world for bio-diversity, this southern most coast is a wildlife wilderness.

Place of the Black Swan

The Wilson Inlet is separated from the sea by Nullaki Peninsula, and where the peninsula and headland meet, at Ocean Beach, a sandbar separates the inlet from the ocean. Each year the sandbar is breached at Prawn Rock Channel (image above), creating a wide channel to the ocean as the Inlet discharges. The inlet is a sanctuary for Black Swans and has been for hundreds of years. Denmark, is known to the aboriginal community as 'Koorabup' actually means 'place of the Black Swan'.
