The drive from Denmark to Walpole is 65km in length and will take you approximately 50 minutes along the South Coast Highway. There are plenty of interesting things to see along the way and here is a complete list of what you can find.
1. William Bay National Park
Just outside Denmark is William Bay National Park which has many natural attractions. Turn left onto William Bay Road and follow the road to the end. This will take you to Waterfall Beach. As the name suggests, it is a beach with its own little waterfall. The drop is only a couple of metres but it is pretty enough to see, listen to and splash in while you are at the beach.
Back tracking further along William Bay Road, you will find Elephant Rocks. Surprisingly these granite boulders actually do look like a herd of elephants. Follow the wooden staircase down to Elephant Cove and you find yourself on ground level between two large boulders. Depending on the tide level, water from the Southern Ocean will tumble its way between the rocks. Quite a claustrophobic feeling.
If you're hungry or thirsty this is a great place to stop to have a break. The café offers a range of foods. If you're not that hungry it's worth the stop just to take a photo with the giant marron outside the café.
Located on Bandit Road off the South Coast Highway is a collection of dinosaur skeletons including the only one of a T-Rex within Australia. The Bird and Reptile Park also has interactive exhibits. Check website for opening times and admission costs.
5. Animal spotting
As well as the normal wildlife that you see when driving - kangaroos, eagles, emus - have a go at spotting some deer and some belted cows. We found both in paddocks and were especially impressed with the cows which look like a cross between a cow and a sheep.
A few kilometres inland from the main road is the settlement of Peaceful Bay. Here you will find some sheltered waters that are perfect for swimming and fishing. There is a caravan park and many houses with interesting names. See if you can find them all.
7. Conspicuous Cliffs
There are three lookouts at the cliffs and it is worth the uphill walk to the one at the very top. This is the perfect spot for whale watching between May and December. Follow the boardwalk down to the beach for a gentle stroll along the sand.
The drive between the two towns is short but there are so many things to see in between. Stop and have a look at one or a few of these places to make your trip between Denmark and Walpole a whole lot more interesting.
