What geocaching trip to Western Australia would be complete without a trip to Denmark ?
Denmark is approximately 420km, or a 4 ½ hour drive from Perth via the Albany Highway. It is a popular Holiday destination offering some of the state’s most dramatic coastlines and stunning forests. With so much to see and do, we cant list them all here but check out the Denmark Visitors Website for a heap off information including attractions, accommodation and much, much more.
Denmark has welcomed Geocaching and why not ? It is home to one of Western Australia’s most respected, (and favorited) geocacher – roymerc. And it’s not hard to see why. Even the ABC were impressed and commissioned a short video which can be seen here
The stats speak for themselves. As of November 2019, 11 caches with over 100 Fav Points and 1 with over 200. He has also been rewarded with over 3750 Fav Points on all of his caches.
As Molly would say, “Do yourself a favour” and book a trip to Denmark. You wont regret it.
