  • This place is great, the water is crystal clear! It's a great place to spend a hot afternoon with the kids.
  • Best beach in Australia it's amazing.
  • My family loved spending a few hours at Meelup Beach. The bay is calm, the sand is soft, and the parkland is beautiful.
  • Beautiful shaded picnic area to stop at while touring the south west. Revived with lunch and a swim after combining fabulous local produce with our picnic. Clean showers and toilets.
  • Love this place, simply stunning.
