Where I stayed

The first port of call for our South West road trip was delightful Denmark. Nestled on an inlet, this green town had beautiful character with alfresco cafes and small boutique shops, not to mention the spectacular surrounding coastline.

We booked to stay in a rent out holiday home called Verandah's - it was such a treat to have accommodation that was really comfortable and homely. We took full advantage of the verandah facilities and threw some shrimps on the barbie and dined Aussie style on 2 out of 3 nights we were there for!

Over the three days in Denmark, we escaped to the glorious Green's Pool where the sea was as still as a lake and crystal clear. Hidden round the bay of Green's Pool were some rock formations coming out of the water on the shoreline that looked like elephants! It was such a dreamy location to while away a day.

We also did some scenic driving one day out to the city of Albany and also checked out some of the nearby natural attractions and look-out points. On our way out of Denmark, through the meandering roads, we discovered that the local area had a variety of culinary experiences so we decided to check some of them out. First we went to the Chocolate Lounge where Abi, with her sweet tooth, could get a taste of the good stuff and then we continued on to (my heaven!), a cheese farm where we shared quite possibly the best cheese platter known to man!

Continuing our journey long the coast, we stopped off at Walpole to gaze in awe at the tremendously tall Tingle trees from a board-walk fourty feet high! The whole area was filled with forest and woodland, and was so green which is unusual to see in Australia. From here we continued our whistle-stop tour of the South West and headed to the Margaret River region.

Margaret River is famous for it's fine wine and gourmet food so we thought it would be rude not to sample some of the local goods! Two nights of indulgence were spent here before we headed up towards Bunbury, a little further North up the West coast.

We stayed in Bunbury as it's a popular place to spot dolphins and although we didn't see the friendly creatures really close up, we were still able to spot them playing about 100 metres away from the shore. This was the end of the road trip and it was now time to spend our final four nights in Fremantle....
