Hillarys Boat Harbour, a popular marina and attraction located 23 kilometres north of Perth, where both locals and visitors hang out. Hillarys is great for shopping, dining, keeping the kids entertained at the playground or beach, or just catching a sea breeze at the marina. Many of the cafes and restaurants such as Zing Cafe and The Breakwater Tavern have sweeping views of the marina, and make a great place to just chill out and relax with family and friends. Whether it is a beer, a casual meal, or a more formal dining experience that you are after, you will find it at Hillarys. You may be after a classic seaside fish and chips, or feel like indulging yourself. If you are a fan of all things chocolate, a decadent hot chocolate and churros at San Churro Chocolateria springs to mind!

The Sorrento Board Walk at Hillarys Boat Harbour offers surfing gear shops, home ware, clothing and gifts shops galore for the shopaholic in your family. And at 91 Southside Drive, you will find the home of The Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA),  which lays claim to being the largest aquarium in Australia and the 10th largest aquarium in the world. View some stunning exhibits while boning up on Western Australian’s amazing marine life, and walk through the underwater tunnel to view the colourful fish, stingrays, and turtles in a living reef.

If you feel like being a dare devil,  you can dive with the sharks up close and personal, while if you don’t have any diving experience, you could opt for the reefwalker option to walk underwater and admire the coral reef display.
