Meelup Beach is a must-see Aussie Bucket List beach located in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia. Families will love the pure white sand and gentle rolling waves of Meelup Beach, near Dunsborough. Meelup Beach has been a favourite for family holidays for generations. Here, the protected bay offers ideal swimming conditions. This calm bay is a popular place for yachts and sailing boats to drop anchor and enjoy an afternoon of swimming and relaxing.

Barbecues and picnic tables sit under leafy gum trees on large grassy areas, making it the perfect spot for a picnic all year round.

Meelup is surrounded by beautiful natural bush land – take one of the coastal walk trails that wind through Meelup Park. The bushwalking is easy going and suitable for families. You’ll be rewarded with amazing views over the ocean and colourful wildflowers during spring. In late winter and spring whales are often spotted on their migration along the coast. Those in the know head to Meelup Beach on summer evenings when for a few nights each month, the full moon rises over the Indian Ocean horizon.

Meelup Beach is about a ten minute drive from Dunsborough. You can drive to Dunsborough in about three hours from Perth.
