This area caters well for locals and tourists alike. Great for boating with launching ramp and jetty so fishermen and sailors are well catered for and a playground for the ankle biters. Good grassed area is ideal for picnics and with restaurants and coffee shops...More

Heaps of history in this place. Cape peron is spectacular and a must visit. Surrounding attractions warrant a visit. Denham has a good range of facilities to support your visit.

These guys are brilliant & very professional, perfect nature cruises. Always plenty of sea life around, September is a nice time to go, very mild temps 20-24c probably a few showers here and there. Enjoy

The beaches are very calm in Denham, little lagoon is also very good for kids with shallow waters. Don't miss out on heading over to Monkey Mia for dolphin experience and great swimming.

Hi scipio A. I totally agree with the last reply. Give Denham a miss. For that matter we found monkey Mia a big let down. Save your time for Geraldton or Canarvon. Much better money spent
