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.

Didn't actually get to stay in Denham although wish we had. We chose to stay at Nanga which was a really bad decision. Never mind, next time we'll know better. The town has been upgraded a lot since we were there many years ago. Lovely...More

Shark Bay is heritage listed & a drive through will show you why, just beyond words, a lot to see, nature showing off.

We decided to head into town to check this out. We were recommended the jetty but unfortunately it is closed and looks like it has been for some time.

If travelling through I recommend stopping here. The bay is very beautiful and would be great to have a picnic. There are a few shops (cafe, bakery, fish n chips store) nearby also.

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
