    January 7 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Denmark looks a bit like an old western city. It's a small fishermans village. 🏡
    The Berridge Park is nice to hang up and the Norm Thornton Park too. 🌱
    At the fishing spot Pelican Bay you can see pelicans really close. 👌
    I saw them in the zoo in Lerth before, but never free running. 😊

    Denmark (beaches)

    October 15, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    The promised sunshine finally arrived on Saturday so we loaded up with beach supplies and drove 20 minutes to William Bay National Park. First we checked out Elephant Rocks and the kids had a splash in the waves before we headed around the corner and found a perfect spot on the white sand at Greens Pool. The clear water is protected from the surf by a natural rock wall creating a huge, calm pool for swimming and snorkelling. We spent the day enjoying the sunshine - swimming (even if the water was really cold!), snorkelling (only Roy was tempted) and sand castle construction filled out a very pleasant day!
    It didn't take much to convince the kids to repeat the same exercise on Sunday - what a gorgeous spot!

    Albanie, Denmark & Walpole national park

    January 12, 2016 in Australia ⋅

    Het zuidwesten van Australie is prachtig en niet te vergelijken met het droge en lege centraal en noord westen. We genieten van de mooie kust routes, gratis bbq's, gezellige stadjes, hartige taarten vers van de bakker en de gigantische bomen in het nationaal park. De bomen zijn volledig aangepast aan het droge australische klimaat en blijven leven na een bosbrand of als ze vanbinnen volledig zijn weggerot. De bomen zijn tussen de 1000 en 400 jaar oud en erg indrukwekkend om te zien. We belanden ook nog bij een blueberry farm, waar ze spinnen gebruiken om de insecten weg te eten ipv chemicaliën ( goed dat Sabrina dit past wist toen ze er waren, want anders had het zomaar gekund dat we er helemaal niet heen zouden gaan ;-). We genieten hier van verse blueberry muffins en zelfgemaakt blueberry ijs.Read more

    Denmark (forests)

    October 13, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    With the forecast promising better weather for the weekend, we headed south to the coast. We'd planned to stop at Walpole, but changed our minds and decided to use Denmark as our base to explore the area (and save us one set up / pack up!). The dense, towering forests thinned out as we neared the coast and were interspersed with rolling green farmland. Tummies rumbling, we decided on the spur of the moment to stop off at the Elephant Rock Cider Co for lunch. There's something for everyone at this family run operation - cider, a toffee factory, a shop selling an extensive range of sauces and preserves and a pleasant cafe with outdoor seating and play equipment for the kids. We'd been tempted by Wikicamps' reports of amazing burgers - and they were pretty good...but HUGE! They also had a pretty cool looking mini-soccer course ( mini golf but with soccer balls) but we decided to push on and head for Denmark, just down the road.
    We stayed at Denmark Rivermouth Caravan Park, where Jen and Roy had stayed 19 years ago and were pleased to discover it was as good (or even better) than they remembered. We had no problem snaring a site with river views and the hopped on our bikes for the short ride back to town and the big playground on the banks of the Denmark River. The kids enjoyed playing and Roy and Jen soaked up some warmth in the sun.
    On Friday, we packed a picnic and hopped in the car to head back to Walpole-Nornalup National Park to visit some more giants of the south west forests - first up were the Tingle Trees (apparently their name is derived from the local Noongar Aboriginal people's name for the trees). We followed a one way loop up to a lookout with spectacular views over the forest, the inlet near Walpole and the sea beyond. Sections of the Bibbulmun Track traverse these forests and would be a wonderful way to explore them. We continued driving and stopped off to check out the "Giant" Tingle Tree and the "Large" Tingle Tree. Many of these trees have huge hollowed out bases, the result of fires burning out the heartwood. Amazingly, owing to the structure of the bark, they can survive this trauma and continue to grow to towering heights. Sadly, in 1990, the original "Giant" toppled over after years of visitors feet, and even cars, trampling its fragile roots. Unlike many other forest giants, the Tingle Trees' roots grow out horizontally rather than deep into the earth - now this is better understood, the current "Giant" and "Tall" specimens are surrounded by boardwalks to minimise the impact of foot traffic. There was a pretty 1km loop walk through the forest - plenty more Tingle Trees and wildflowers to be enjoyed. If the weather had been better we would have continued on to Circular Pool (which sounded like a nice swimming spot); instead we headed back to the highway and on to the Valley of the Giants and Tree Top Walk.
    The Tree Top Walk is a wheelchair accessible walk, literally in the Tingle Tree tops, 40m off the ground at its highest point! The kids and Roy loved it...Jen not so much! The metal structure is comprised of spans between pylons - and the spans swayed unnervingly with only 5 of us on it (would hate to think what it would be like in school holidays when no doubt there'd be the maximum of 20 people per span at any given time!). The kids were given a great little detective hunt booklet at the start of the walk which made it easy to convince them to continue through the short Ancient Empire walk at ground level - they wanted to solve all of the clues!
    We stopped off at Bartholomew's Meadery on the way back to Denmark. The kids were fascinated by the glass beehive in the shop, Roy tried some of the mead (not convinced!) and we all enjoyed a delicious honey-based ice cream made onsite. The shop also sold a variety of honey and other honey and bee-related products. Back at the campsite, Jen headed over the Denmark River via the bridge at the front of the caravan park for a walk along the Heritage Walk Trail (a Rail Trail that now forms part of the Bibbulmun Track) and Roy and the kids tried some fishing on the River (usual success rate!).

    Albany - Denmark - Busselton

    February 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅

    Noch einmal durch Albany gefahren, haben wir uns auf den Weg in Richtung Bunbury gemacht. Unserem letzten Stopp vor Perth.

    In Denmark (ja die „Stadt“ heißt tatsächlich so) sind wir am „Greens Pool“ angehalten.💦
    Die Felsen dort erheben sich so aus dem Meer, dass sie vom Strand aus das Wasser vom offenen Meer abtrennen und eine Art Pool formen!😌
    Wir sind zu den Felsen geschwommen und haben uns auf ihnen gesonnt!🌞
    Nachmittags waren wir Schnorcheln, wobei ich eine perlmutt-farbene Muschel gefunden habe und sie als Erinnerung mitgenommen habe.😁Das Wasser war türkis-grün und wieder total klar, sodass man beim tauchen einige Fische und Krebse sehen konnte.

    Gegen Ende des Tages bin ich dann ungeplant 4 Stunden mit dem Auto durchgefahren (was wirklich fertig gemacht hat), bis wir in Busselton auf unserem Campingplatz angekommen sind. Dort haben wir aufgrund der geschlossenen Küche im Waschsalon noch schnell unser Abendessen gekocht und sind dann schlafen gegangen.💤

    Peaceful Bay & Tingle Trees

    May 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    We have seen quite a bit of bird life today, including emu's twice. First a mother and four young and the second time eight adults, all grazing on grassy fields. We also saw pelicans up close at the lovely Walpole bay where we could get really close. After a walk around the aptly named Peaceful Bay we went on a guided walk around the ancient trail at the Valley of Giants visitor centre. It was really interesting to learn about the third largest tree in the world, that only grows naturally here in such a small area (6000 hectares) called the Red Tingle. It is a type of eucalyptus tree that grows tall first, up to 75 meters, then wide, up to a 20 meter girth. The inside is oftern killed leaving it hollow while the outer part remains alive. Had a relaxing lunch by the waterway at Nornalup and drove through tree plantations, where they were burning the tree stumps of felled ones right by the road side. Had a look at the tiny village of Northcliff which use to be quite a bustling town before heading to Sid's camp, a real bush camp done well with a solar shower.Read more

    Green Pools and Elephant Rocks

    May 2, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    Being away from any lights meant we had great views of the stars again. The clear night also meant it was a cold one but warmed up once the sun rose. This was beautiful to watch at the beach with the mist rising. After having a look around historical Denmark we spent most of the day at Green Pools, like a natural sheltered swimming area that had incredibly clear water which we both enjoyed a swim in. We met Bob in the car park, a motorcycle tourer from Las Vegas, who we had a really long natter with about bikes and touring having been to many similar places as him. While on the beach Lou got talking to a lady who had just collected a dead, blue ringed octopus, in her mask that was in the shallow water. We were told, while inspecting it closely, that it would kill you if you touched it! A little research later and we now know that it is Australia's most deadly creature with the fully grown adult (golf ball size) secretions able to kill 26 humans. They do bite but can be unnoticed and will paralyse you. Unfortunately there is no anti-venom and people die the same day. We don't know the fate of the woman who took it away in her googles to show Tourist Information!
    A walk on the rocks took us around the bay to the huge boulders that actually look like massive elephants bathing in the sea. The evening was spent at another beachside campground set in trees (the warning signs would suggest that deadly snakes like it here too!)
