Always visit this beach, as it is just beautiful all year round. The water like others have reviewed is just fantastic and clear. great place to chill, swim for all. Unfortunately not if you take your Dog.

Meelup Beach very nice beach, spot for bbq, life guard and swimming flags, water clear, waves quite calm around 11am. “Small pond” for children and very clean toilet and ample toilet papers.

On a very windy day Meelup Beach was a delight to visit. Due to the direction of the wind Meelup is well sheltered resulting in calm waters great for swimming . Plenty of parking on site plus the toilets were well maintained and very clean...More

I don't find the Margaret River township very interesting ( it's the region that's great) so you still have a few hours after the tour to explore. However, if you have had a few wines at lunch you might just want to chill and not drive anywhere. You could do a walk or stroll from the MR township which could be pleasant. Yallingup area is lovely to stay but fewer eating places and means a drive after the tour.

Night markets unless under cover are pretty much finished for now until summer. Not sure about Perth Home Grown Markets, but it seems they will be operating. Have a Plan B just in case though. Hiring a car at the airport garners an added daily fee. I’d take a taxi to a hotel in the CBD and hire from a Perth depot the next day. I stand to be corrected but I don’t think many/any wineries do dinner service, only lunch. If the waves are high Busselton Underwater Observatory may not be great...More
