Located on the east side of Cape Naturaliste, this calm, turquoise bay is protected from the westerly winds and ocean swell. Perfect for swimming, fishing and relaxing. Castle Rock is located at the end of Castle Bay, accessed by a meander along the beach or via the Meelup Trail. A climb to the top will offer spectacular views.
It is a picturesque spot for a picnic with gas BBQs, picnic tables and wheelchair access.

If you're a lover of wildflowers, this is the place to come - head east on the coastal track towards Castle Rock and the whale lookout or head west towards Meelup Beach and you find several varieties of Spider, Mustard, Jug, Donkey and possibly the rare Cape orchid. Native Rose, Pimeleas Hooded Lily and Acacias (Wattles) can also be spotted here. 

It is also a great surf break if you venture off the beach. When the swells are big and dangerous along the coast head to castle rock because it is protected and holds good swell, with great long rides.

It is beautiful place to see on the sunny day .It is easy to access only one hour driving from Bunbury. The rocks are very colourful from red , yellow to light green . Ocean very calm and blue . I enjoyed the day walking along the mountains watching the ocean blue

Beautiful area! Car park is close by with long drop loos. Meelup beach is a 2km walk away with flushing loos and showers. Beautiful coastal area to explore. Very interesting also to see the dividing line between the fire and non affected area. Such a contrast! Lovely water...So clear. The flies were too friendly tho!
