Great place to take visitors (and family) with many restaurants, interesting shops and funpark on the beach... AQWA is also onsite. During summer parking might not be so easy to find but worth the walk. Take your bathers... its on the beach. And take a full wallet. Your kids will have a BALL but it will also cost you.

I can see overseas visitors liking Hillarys but for us it needs a revamp, everything has been their forever, mostly cheap imported "Aussie Souvenirs" Over Priced meals and drinks and really it was great 20 years ago

I have spent most of my life growing up near this boar harbour, watching it grow and transform into a great tourist destination, or a nice getaway for a coffee! Hillarys Boat Harbour is an imperative icon for the Northern suburbs and a must see for people visiting Perth for the first time :), with beautiful beaches and fabulous food.

Hillarys is packed with lots of great dining, entertainment and places to have a drink. The real magic is the beautiful scenery and overall great vibe. If you get a chance AQWA is also a must do

Hillarys Boat Harbour is a beautiful place, the restaurants there are fabulous with very nice food, a great day all round. You can even pre book a ferry to go to Rottnest Island, which is also lovely.

A good selection of shops and a nice place to visit. Jumping off the jetty and swimming to shore brought back childhood memories.

I just love this place. There are a few gift like shops and a few more fashion shops, but it was one of the better places to grab a bite of lunch and watch the world go by. There is a beach and a small harbour with plenty of boats for sale if you want to life or just dream... More
