“A must see when in WA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

A brilliant lively place to visit, there is a beach to relax on numerous restaurants to dine at from fish and chips served in paper or a sit down meal at numerous restaurants. There is a shopping area for retail therapy. A fun fair for the children, beautiful place to watch the sun go down.

“Very attractive boat harbour and surrounding infrastructure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stopped here on our way home from the Pinnacles and then returned to have lunch later in the week because we thought it was so attractive an area. This is a boat harbour with marina, boat sales area, children's park, artificial beach, extensive boardwalk, restaurants, cafes,fast food outlets and shops. It is well laid out, there is good parking and a mix of eating possibilities from the expensive to the very cheap. Hillary's is well worth a visit and on a hot summer's day a great place to spe4nd a few hours. We visited in April firstly and very briefly on a warm sunny day then more exstensively on a day when it rained on and off all day so not a good day to really see the place in its best light but even in these conditions it was attractive and we are glad we came here twice..

“Excellent family facility, something for everyone.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Hillary's is a suburb north of Perth, it has a boat harbour with man made lagoon and beach area.
Safe bathing for children and calm water for kayaking. Activity park for older kids and an array of restaurants and shops in a Marina style environment.
Really enjoyed the afternoon strolling around the harbour.

“Lovely place for brunch and a stroll.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lovely harbour place for brunch/food in one of the many cafés serving up items and gluten free options plus smoothies to die for. Plenty of tables around and families enjoying the sunshine. A few shops selling local souvenirs or clothing items.

Free parking and swimming for the children or adults if you wish in the harbour.

Well worth a look...
