Natural beauty, food and arts all in abundance

Ask Springdale Beach Project Manager, Kelli Howell, to tell you what she loves most about LWP’s boutique coastal development near Denmark in WA’s south west and she will tell you it is all about the lifestyle.

“If I had to describe it in one sentence, I would say Springdale Beach is relaxing, peaceful, bursting with natural beauty and perfectly located to help you explore some of WA’s most admired attractions,” she muses.

Residents at Springdale Beach are lucky to enjoy quiet country living without being too far from world-class tourist attractions and essential services.

Less than 6000 people live in the Shire of Denmark and all live in a truly unique environment, where a trip to The Valley of the Giants and Tree Top Walk is just around the bend and allows you to walk through the forest canopy 40m high.

Rocky headlands, secluded beaches and sheltered bays are also within reach every day or ask a local guide to take you on a tour. Choose from a 4WD eco-tour, walking tour, winery tour, whale watching, river and inlet cruise, horse trail riding, fishing charters and more.

The town of Denmark is only 2.5km from Springdale Beach and picture-perfect swimming spots, such as Greens Pools in Williams Bay National Park, are right on the doorstep, along with more than 20 wineries and eating spots.

Annual events include the Demark Summer Golf Classic, the Festival of Voice in June, New Earth Festival in August and Christmas Parade. Meanwhile, the popular Denmark Markets are held by the river at Berridge Park at Easter, Christmas and New Year.

Local musicians are celebrated during summer and autumn at wineries around Denmark as they host free, regular music sessions.

According to the Denmark Visitor’s Centre: “artists, musicians, dancers, performance theatre, arts festivals and live music thrive in Denmark with its relaxed pace of life and stunning natural environment”.

“Creative and artistic expression is fundamental to the vitality and wellbeing of the Denmark community,” its website explains.

Foodies will rejoice with annual month-long celebration Taste Great Southern, Western Australia's largest food and wine festival, taking place in the region each March.

And from berries to chocolate, truffles to cider many local producers showcase seasonal produce at farm gate venues and local shops throughout the year.

Meanwhile, local walks and trails including the Bibbulmum Track, Mokare Heritage Trail and a walk to Tower Hill are high on many visitor’s lists.

Albany, the closest city, has all the conveniences of a major regional city including banks, government agencies and health services and a fascinating history to match.

The historic whale station at Albany provides an educational insight into Australia’s last operating station and the town’s colourful past or for a more leisurely day, why not pack a picnic and head to Little Beach?
