Meelup Trail

Meelup Regional Park

Directions - Located near Dunsborough, from the centre of town take Cape Naturaliste Road north until you reach the turn for Eagle Bay Road. Turn right and follow this all the way into Eagle Bay, turning right again at Gypsy Street. At the bottom of the hill you find Reidle Park on the corner of Eagle Bay-Meelup Road. There is parking on Gypsy Street and the trail head is located next to the toilet block. The end of the trail at the north end of Dunsborough is located along the one way Hurford Street that is accessed at the end of Gifford Road. 

The Hike - The Meelup Trail is a highlight of the Cape Naturaliste trails landscape near Dunsborough that is already pretty spectacular thanks to the Cape to Cape Track. As one of the last trails in the area to visit, along with the suite of hikes surrounding Yallingup, I was saving the Meelup Trail for the height of wildflower season in spring. With a short but action packed road trip to the South West, this would be the highlight of a four trail day that had seen me hike the Cape Naturaliste Track and Bunker Bay Loop already this morning.
