“Great way to spend the day”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

I have been coming to Hillary's boat harbour for years our young boy loves the kids beach as it's family friendly & no big waves.
There are plenty of places to eat at & pubs to drink at as well as the great escape water park & Aqwa ( water aquarium) for kids.

“Wonderful place north of Perth”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is a beautiful place to visit with the family. Lots of eateries with a lot of choices. Heaps of shaded areas to sit and enjoy some peace and quiet. The Jetty is beautiful with all the boats in harbour. Ample parking is available. The Great Escape and Aqwa are within the area. The scenery is magnificent and Sorrento Beach is walking distance away. This is full day adventure indeed. A trip to Perth is not good enough without a trip to the Hillarys Boat HArbour.

There are so many things to do at Hillary's, swimming, eating, relaxing along with some nice little shops and GREAT ice creams. Definitely worth a visit.

Great place all round really. Wide selection of food and drink loads of places to relax. There's a lot of activities for the kids aswell. The breakwater bar is a must especially at the weekends........

“Touristy and Tacky”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Several people recommended we visit Hillary's and after having done so I am wondering why. To me it was like so many other places where tourism and the associated commercial interests invade a naturally beautiful spot and basically "destroy it". The marine area was a conglomeration of all the tacky/ tourism shops that these places offer.
Perhaps it's more for young families and/or teens with the pools, beach, fun parks etc.
Unfortunately, I couldn't see much attraction in the place.
