We just did a short walk along this trail from the Meelup Beach carpark. No flies, just wildflowers. Lovely at this time of year.

Amazing bush and coastal walks between Dunsborough and Cape Naturaliste. Make sure you don't leave any rubbish behind. Don't want this spoilt.

Loved this trail... especially all those gorgeous little bays and beaches. Following the coast around is magnificent and the colour of the water is so beautiful. This is a gorgeous walk.
