Denman is the first town encounted when heading west on the ‘golden hgy’ towards Dubbo after Branxton. Denman is a very neat town that has most essential services. It is easy to see why people are attracted to this community.
Denman is situated on the Hunter River near the Wollemi National Park.
The main rural industries in the Denman region are wine grape growing, horse breeding and farming.
Denman also is situated near Mount Rombo; a hill that has an unusual geometric shape causing to look like it has a perfectly flat top if it is viewed from Mangoola Road, a road that branches off the Golden Highway.
About 20 km north-west of Denman, in the Goulburn River National Park, is Mount Dangar (670 m above sea level). It was sighted in 1824 by surveyor Henry Dangar who named it Mt Cupola (for its domed shape). It was renamed by explorer Allan Cunningham, who became the first European to climb it the following year. Mount Dangar is a good place for walks, offering exceptional views of the area.
