Meelup Reserve Trail

Wildflowers

Overview

The Meelup Reserve Trail is a beautiful serene coastal walk that traverses along the north-facing Geographe Bay. This lovely bush track is an easy walk consisting mainly of a limestone and granite path decorated with stunning white sandy turquoise bays and pristine bushland.

More information

A walk along this trail will take you to isolated petite bays and coves through to the famous and popular bays and beaches that have facilities such as picnic areas, barbecues, showers and toilets.

The trail starts just off Hurford Street in Old Dunsborough where the Meelup Nature Reserve begins. The trail will take you past Curtis Bay, Castle Rock, Castle Bay, the famous picturesque Meelup Beach, Point Picquet and finishes at Eagle Bay.

Most of the beaches along this track are renowned swimming beaches and are particularly inviting with their calm turquoise water. Small reefs and rocky outcrops provide good snorkelling. On the trail there’s plenty of wildlife and wildflowers in spring. The track has numerous whale watching vantage points along the way and is a great spot to see whales from September to December.

To see the Meelup Nature Reserve from a different point of view, a kayaking tour follows this stunning coastline. The track officially finishes at Eagle Bay however a rougher steeper track continues all the way to Bunker Bay then onto Cape Naturaliste where it joins up with the Cape to Cape Track.

We went out of school holiday period. During the week so we had a quite time. Totally groovy for kids. Safe swimming area. Good toilet and shower block. Walk paths everywhere. Disable friendly. Very peaceful during our time there. Shady areas a plus. Have fun.

One of the best places on earth so pretty. The colour of the water is always turquoise and part of a marine park where you can spot whales jumping in season. Waters are calm and great for swimming and snorkeling. Cristal clear. Great for paddle boarding too.

Awesome beach for the kids to chill out. Clear day and even spotted a whale. The kids lived playing on the rocks and a great spot for a picnic.
