Your next stop along your Forest Adventure is Denmark, a coastal town which is best experienced in any season with so much to offer, but the colder months add a whole other element. On your way into town from Walpole, stop into William Bay National Park to visit Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks, both sure to leave you in awe. Even if it’s too chilly to take a dip or spend the afternoon in the sand soaking up the sun, these locations are still worth stopping into for some incredible sightseeing and insta-worthy photos!
Denmark is jammed packed full of natural attractions and activities, and the cooler climate sets the mood for a wintery escape on the coast. A place where tall forests mix with white sandy beaches, with ancient rock formations and the expansive ocean ahead of you. Head out on the world class walking trails, wildlife, and amazing sunsets.
You’ve reached the last stop of your Forest Adventure when you get to the hub of Albany. Many people don’t realise how big the coastal town of Albany truly is until they see it for themselves, there is so much to see and do! One of the most popular and iconic Albany locations is The Gap and Natural Bridge in Torndirrup National Park, and in these wintery months when the ocean is choppy and wild, the views you will get from The Gap lookout are truly unforgettable. The viewing platform is high enough for you to look down (if you aren’t afraid of heights) and watch the waves crash against the rugged and rocky cliff edges.
Another amazing place to visit on a windy Winters day is the Albany Wind Farm. The 12 wind turbines line the coast in a silent, eerily beautiful ever-moving formation as the wind powers through and the turbines spin, so the windier the better! Take a walk along the wooden boardwalk and read the signage to learn more about the turbines, but our major tip is to visit at sunset, it’s one of the best spots in town to catch the sun set into the ocean!
