    Beginers beach for toddlers and families
    Great place for toddlers to waddle in the water. With a safe and shallow bay for littles to play in the sand and get experience in the ocean, Hillays is a brilliant spot for families. All the facilities needs, fast food, taverns. shade, shops and showers. Protected beach so tiny waves.

    We LOVED Hillary’s boat harbour. We were visiting from Sydney and returned a few times in our 7 days trip. It was great for small children, there were lots of great eateries, and the small theme park had great staff who were very friendly and ensured we had a great time!

    REALLY
    This is October with Summer only a couple of months away so why are half the shops and Catering Premises are EMPTY We are told this is a Tourist Attraction so I wonder what our WA tourists will think of this venue. Used to have a Big Water Slide etc etc. Still a good location for locals but boy, could it be better

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great area for family's to go have a swim and just relax, plenty of restaurants and other speciality shops to buy food and drinks, plus souvenirs. Or just bring a picnic basket.

As locals we find the venue is great but SO MANY SHOPS ARE EMPTY AS ARE CATERING VENUES. When will the management listen and drop their HIGH RENTS so people can afford to have a business here. This is supposed to be a Tourist Destination and yet some many people have gone out of business here. We walked all around and spent money here as we feel sorry for those that are open and struggling

Once again this toilet has been closed and broken for 2 mths. Unacceptable disgraceful. It’s discrimination of the worst kind. You MUST provide working disabled toilets amongst all the eateries.

Shame on the owners as there are so many vacant premises. Why..... because businesses have to pay too much rent. This place should be busy ALL year round. We are locals and if you go there in the daytime, the place is like a ghost town with not much open and those that are do limited hours. And thats in October/November when there should be crowds. If thats not bad enough the old site for the big water slide is still vacant.

We left a private function at 11 pm to return to our car when we were abused and harassed by numerous gangs of youths hanging around the marina. We were intimidated and scared. Not the family-friendly place I remember it to be. Where was the security to move the youths on?

We took 3 grandchildren to the Local Shack at Hillarys, this evening, very disappointing chips mushy and only just warm, kids fish & chips was an insult to kids and when I asked for napkins as there were 4 pick up meals only 2 were given.
Never again will we go there.
