Denmark WA

Denmark started it's life as a timber town in 1895 and was boosted into growth by the early 1920's due to the establishment of the Group Settlement Scheme, which was designed to provide work for ex-servicemen of the post World War I era. Unfortunately many of the families were forced to leave their land and the district because of the depression which saw Denmark's population rapidly decline.

When World War II had ended dairy farmers gave way to the beef cattle enterprise which subsequently boosted the income of the region. From here tourism gradually grew and Denmark found a place on the world map.
The timber trade experienced a short comeback between 1950 and 1975 however it was very moderate.

The Denmark of the new millenium is famous for its wonderful beauty and natural environment. Tourism plays a major role in the towns economy and horticulture serves as a stable backbone to the financial upkeep of the town. Wine makers, the arts/cultural pursuits (theatre, pottery, painting, wood-working and a number of art & crafts) are a great feature to the towns new diversity and range of appeal.
Since 1984 the district's population has grown an at average of 4% a year, and now stands at about 4300.
