The vision for the future of the park is to:

Manage the park for conservation and environmental enhancement and allow recreation and other uses of the park to occur to the extent that they do not impair the conservation values of the park.

Meelup Regional Park is vested in the City of Busselton for the purpose of Conservation and Recreation. A formal Management Plan has been adopted by the Council and the Minister of Lands pursuant to section 49 of the Land Administration Act 1997.

Wadandi Custodians

Meelup Regional Park is on Wadandi boodja (land) and the Wadandi people maintain an unbroken connection to the Park. The City and the Committee are working towards increasing Wadandi involvement in Park management.

The Committee

The Meelup Regional Park Management Committee (Committee) works in partnership with the Council and City Officers to assist in the management of the Park.

The Committee was established in 1993 and all committee members are volunteers who meet on a regular basis.

The Committee is responsible providing advice and recommendations to the City Officers and the Council with regards to membership, strategic direction, statutory and non-statutory plans and the encouragement, coordination and facilitation of volunteer involvement. The Committee also builds and maintains productive working relationships between the Council, City officers, volunteers and users of the Park and other stakeholders to assist in the management of the Park.

Meelup Regional Park is 577 hectares in area and extends from Dunsborough to Bunker Bay. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, high biodiversity values and provides incredible recreational opportunities for nature lovers.
