"Northern town great for a sea change."

Denham is located in the Shark Bay area and is situated on the Peron Peninsula. Denham is famous for its prawns and has a large seafood industry although it was once a major pearling port. Denham is also the main administrative centre for the area. Many of the major attractions here are out of town with some being accessible only by 4 wheel drive but they are well worth it... Tourism is very big here and many of the town’s residents are employed in the tourist industry in some way. Getting to Denham is easy traveling on the 840 km sealed road from Perth or there are flights available several times a week. Coaches are also used both only by tourists but by many locals as well. Denham has motels, caravan parks and bed and breakfasts for the tourist and although property prices here are getting quite high due to all the area has to offer. There is a supermarket, specialty shops, fast food outlets as well as newsagents, chemist, souvenir shop etc. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants, a post office and several service stations. There is a good sized airport, boat ramps and jetties for the boatie and fisherman. Educational facilities are good with Shark Bay School catering for students from K-12.
