Beedelup is a national park in Western Australia (Australia), 277 km south of Perth. It is situated on the Vasse Highway some 10 km west of Pemberton. The park is especially lush and damp due to an abundance of water.

The park is mostly karri forest, with mixed areas of jarrah and marri. Its major attraction is the Beedelup Falls, which are in full flow during winter and spring.
