Oct 30, 2016 - Peaceful Bay

We went for another tourist drive around this area today. From Peaceful Bay we headed directly to Denmark then turned south and followed the Denmark River to its mouth. There were a number of surfers braving the cold in the water at the river mouth but they were catching some good waves. From there we followed the coast west and went to a designated dog beach at Lights beach to give the dogs a run. It was a fabulous beach for the dogs to have a run because there were rocks for them to run over to get to the next bit of beach and so on. The...

Dec 29, 2014 - Margaret River area and Denmark

On the 26th of December, we moved from Perth to a beautiful home in a vineyard near Margaret River. We were treated to the laughter of the kukkaberra birds, saw so many parrots, and there were kangaroos in the vineyards. We are currently in Denmark, W. Australia. for two days in the one of the most beautiful B and Bs we have ever been! There are loads of kangaroos in the garden every evening--moms, babies, one in a pocket, a male watching everyone. We are on the Southern Ocean and visited the Green Pools and Elephant Rock today. The...

Nov 24, 2014 - Denmark, Western Australia

Jarrah, Marri, Karri, and Tingle – sounds like a law firm, doesn’t it? Actually, these are the huge, beautiful trees along Western Australia’s southern coastline. We had seen karri forests on our way south from Margaret River – and magically, naturally replicated on a formation in Jewel Cave (see our last entry). East of Cape Leeuwin, we passed through dense mixed forests and stopped near the little town of Pemberton for one special tree, the Gloucester Tree. In 1947 a forester climbed a 78-meter (256-foot) tall karri tree to see if it...

2014-Australia

Dec 20, 2013 - Whaling station

We've had a lovely couple of days with our new friends Maureen and Mac in Albany. What a lovely couple they are. We left after breakfast this morning. We had porridge again and it was very nice. After breakfast we filled up with water and left their place going to the nearby Bayonet Head shopping centre to fill up with supplies. I've been told that Albany is where the Australian Light horse brigade left from here to go to the Middle East as part of the British Army in World War I. They went ahead of the troops freeing Beer Sheba from the...

Mar 24, 2012 - DENMARK!!

DENMARK! Hjemme for en kort stund. Det mest danske over byen, udover navnet, var dog en hal der hed Bornholm. Besøget var dog også forbeholdt en køretur igennem. Men lidt sjovt var det nu alligevel. Derfra gik turen videre mod Margret River, men inden da skulle vi dog lige op og gå i trækronerne og nyder udsigten derfra. Dette skete i Valley of the Giants, hvor der 40 meter over jordens overflade, var konstrueret gangbro, hvorpå vi nød en dejlig udsigt ud over talrige trækroner tilhørende nogen af verdens højeste karri træer.

Dec 30, 2011 - Onwards To Peaceful Bay

Fri. Dec. 30.   Rain fell early this morning. We woke to the tap, tap, tapping of the rain drops on the roof of the camper van. With open windows to keep us cool through the night, I felt the mist entering through the window by my bed. The gentle rain kept us from hurrying out of bed. We did, however, manage to check out at ten. Lower Denmark Road is a scenic drive leading us from Albany. Our first stop at the hanging rock was nothing to write home about mostly because the misty wet weather interfered with the view. One bonus to the wet...

Sep 7, 2011 - Aus - Day 126 - Valley of the Giants, Emerald Pools & Elephant Rocks

Woke up early and set off to the Wilderness Discovery Center just outside of Denmark. The Valley of the Giants tree top and Ancient forest walk. The tree top walk takes you up a metal platform 40 meters above the forest floor, offering you canopy views of 20,000 hectares of towering trees. We meandered through the forest trails through the hollow trunks of the amazing Tingle Trees. It was awesome, the weather offered us some sun to enjoy the trees and forest views. We took a guided tour walk through the Ancient Forest and learned lots about...

May 17, 2011 - The rains are here

Its raining, but boy its nice to hear it on the metal roof of the bus. We could see the storming building when we were walking around the blow hole in Albany but thew sky did break until we were set up in Denmark which was really good, nothing worse than setting up in the rain.I did feel sorry for a couple sitting in their car waiting for the storm to settle so they could set up their tent, praise God for caravans! After all the dry fields we have gone past I Cant believe how green everything is here, the grass is so green it took all my...

Gormans Getaway

Mar 12, 2010 - Denmark

Down through the southern part of Margaret River and then swing east into the Southern Forests. We have picked on the tiny town of Denmark on the Southern Ocean coast - again a magnificent unspoilt beach. Our base is a small cottage in the bush; in the past it was the telegraph office for the local (and now defunct) railway. Kangaroos next door and blue wrens on the porch. Driving down we even meet some Emus on the road. Who probably saved me from the speed trap around the corner. The reason for staying here is to visit the Tingle forest....

Aug 24, 2009 - Drive to Denmark with Margo.

First thing this morning I called the Tax Department, but of course they could not give me an answer to my query about depreciation, and said that they will call back within 48 hours. I told them that I needed the information sooner than that, as I was preparing to leave the country. Next call was to MLC. I had called them, to see about withdrawing my meagre superannuation, and was promised last week that the paperwork would be sent that day, but still do not have it. The girl I spoke to said that it had been sent, but agreed to email me a...

Feb 19, 2009 - And on to Denmark... SKOL!

Thursday February 19, 2009 Our first stop today was a walk to see the “Giant Tingle Tree”; tingle is another type of eucalyptus. The red tingle is a shallow rooted tree that sends out roots like buttresses as it grows older (it first grows tall and then wide, rather like us). The Giant Tingle, like many other examples, had been through a forest fire or two, but still survives as it was the centre base that burned out and the nutrients for the tree, as with every tree, flow up just under the outside bark. Our next stop was the “Tree Top...
