Walking in Denmark Town

A walk through Denmark Town Centre is wonderful. Glimpse the history and wonder of Denmark Town on this short walk. You'll pass by the main shopping area and pass cafes along the way. Denmark is just the right size to stroll around.

The markers in the map below can all be visited individually or as a circular walk. If you've got the time to shop as you walk, you could spend most of a day strolling through town too.

A good point to start is at the AQUA MARKER, the Gazebo on Horsley Road at the Denmark Bridge.

A Walking Tour of Denmark

Reading about the History of Denmark will help you to understand the significance of the buildings and areas you are passing on your walking tour.

Start at the riverside. (The aqua-coloured marker on the map.)
There is a large gazebo with seating for two dozen people plus ample parking, BBQ's and toilets. To the left of the facilities you will see boardwalk.

This meanders around to the river and is a beautiful walk, flat and peaceful and it takes you past two lily ponds and flows towards the river where you can relax on a secluded picnic bench right on the Denmark River's edge. If you're lucky you'll see some water birds.

From here walk along the riverside path, south under the bridge, into Berridge Park. Enjoy the trees and the riverside. When you're ready, look for the Old Denmark Hotel across the street from the park. This is the corner of Walker St.

Walk uphill on Walker St. and you'll come to the main street in Denmark, Strickland St. Cross the street to visit the oldest building in Denmark, St Leonard's Anglican Church, built in 1899.

This is a quaint wooden structure. It was built by the community members. There is a beautiful wall tapestry hanging inside representing 100 years of the church from 1899 - 1999. There are 33 individually created squares with unique pictures, it is a very beautiful work of art. The inside of the Church takes you back in time, it has a very healing and tranquil ambience. The stained glass window above the altar is simply stunning.

The RSL Hall - The First School in Denmark, is just down the road to your left. You'll see the cannon out front.

Continue up through denmark on Mitchell St (across from Walker St.) and you'll pass the oldest planted tree in Denmark and on the corner you'll see the Red Cross Building.

At the top of Mitchell St is the Denmark Historical Museum. You can't miss it. This wonderful museum tells the history of the town of Denmark with relics from it's past. It is open at limited times during certain days so it is good to check.

Walk around the corner onto Short Street and walk down towards the South Coast Highway. Cross the Highway into Randall Park and follow Millar St. downhill to the intersection with Mount Shadforth Rd.

Walk to the Old Butter Factory Galleries on Mt Shadforth Rd. Have a cake and tea, lunch or breakfast Mrs Jones, a local favouite! Browse the eclectic array in the Galleries or watch an artist in the studios... the Old Butter Factory is worth the stop.

At this point walk to the corner (the IGA) and cross the road to the Bibbulmun Cafe and then cross the highway again back into the main shopping area of Denmark.

Stop at Fig Tree Square to see the oldest fig in Denmark. This delightful courtyard Square is named after the giant and exquisitely beautiful Fig Tree in its centre planted in 1925.

You can enjoy a coffee or meal in the the award winning Denmark Bakery Cafe sitting indoors or relax alfresco on the benches or outdoor pavement seating.

Stroll through town until you get back to Walker Street and walk left down towards the riverside and Berridge Park. Stroll through the park, under the bridge (or across the road) and back to the start.
