We have been to the boat harbour a couple of times this year and it's lovely. Nice fish and chips there too. If you feel energetic then go for a walk along the beach next to the harbour, Sorrento beach. We had a picnic on the foreshore overlooking the ocean, Perfect!

I absolutely love this beach! I've been here twice now on two separate visits to Australia. It's a gorgeous location, great bars/shops and very friendly with a good safe feel about it. Small beach but perfect.

I go often to Hillary's boat harbour, there are lots of shops, my favourite being the crystal shop and heaps of yummy restaurant to choose from. I love the ocean view and swimming or canoeing in the sea, one of my favourite places.

There's a safe netted area where children are safe to go in thevwater.mLots of walkways boats to look at or catch the flying to Rotnest for something completely different.

So many things to see and do here. School holidays included activities for the kids. Adult eateries, restaurants, pubs, fast food, ice cream, boutique stores. Not enormous, but definitely a few hours of checking things out. Walk past boats, wharf decking everywhere. Kids swimming area. Something for everyone.

Thank KCnLC
