This is our new segment where we will be featuring different locations around Perth on our website and via our YouTube channel. First up is Hillarys Boat Harbour and Sorrento Quay.
Hillarys Boat Harbour located in the suburb of Hillarys is approximately 23 kilometres north of Perth.
It’s an easy twenty five to thirty minute drive by car depending on traffic, or a leisurely journey by Transperth train and bus.
Some must see things to do during a visit to Hillarys Boat Harbour are:
You’ve traversed the continent (or ocean), landed yourself in Perth, and decided to stay around for a week.

The ideas below will allow you to experience a well rounded sampling of what Perth has to offer.
At last, spring is in full swing! In Fremantle, the terraces are buzzing and the chants of the market traders are matching the beats of the baristas. There’s a certain character about Freo that makes you feel wholly connected to the community.

Perth’s Murray and Hay Street malls, and the adjoining arcades in the middle of the Perth CBD, are where the serious shopper will find everything from the latest fashions, fine jewellery, accessories, homewares and souvenirs. There you’ll find the top Australian fashion houses and the two major department stores, Myer and David Jones.
Perth can finally boast its own big markets in Morley, which have become a popular attraction with locals and visitors coming from far and wide.
Coventry Square Markets opened its doors in late 2011 after major development works were completed to transform the old Coventry Group’s site to what it is today. Its brand spanking new premises offer up a selection of 170 shops to browse through, sprawled over an area of 11,000 square metres. So it’s time to get your walking shoes on!
Stay tuned to Perth Walkabout to explore our beautiful city of Perth.
