Let Hillarys put a spring in your step

It feels like we’ve had the longest, wettest Perth winter in memory which is all the more reason to shake off those winter blues and fling yourself into spring at Hillarys Boat Harbour!

Get race day ready

Racing season is almost here, and the Harbour has a range of boutique options to discover your perfect race day look. Stop by the newly opened Manhattan Chic to try on their gorgeous retro-inspired frocks or hire an extra special outfit from Luna & Sol. Don’t forget to drop in on Willie Creek Pearls and AKJ Studio for stunning accessories to complete your look.

Have a whale of a time

September to November is prime whale watching season. Humpback mothers and calves are a common sight, so there’s no better time to get out on the water! The crew at Rottnest Fast Ferries is offering 15% off their awesome 2-hour Whale Watching Cruise by using coupon code WW15 when checking out online.  To find out more about our amazing sea life, be sure to check out AQWA afterwards.

Spruce up your space

A spring clean can be a great way to dust off the cobwebs and get your home ready for the entertaining season. If you’re looking to do a mini home makeover, we’ve got you covered with all kinds of fun and funky homewares available at Frankii Clothing, Bazaar Clothing, Persian Hand Art and Roobarb Boutique.

Lounge on the lawn

With the days getting longer and the temperature warming up, it’s the perfect weather for a picnic! Get a crew together and stake out a spot on the lawn to lay down a blanket and enjoy the view out over the water. Keep it simple and grab a takeaway from one of the Harbour restaurants or get the snags sizzling on one of our four free BBQs.

Blaze a trail

After being cooped up inside for so long, why not enjoy the fresh air as you take in the sights and sounds of the Harbour? We have three fun walking trails, each showcasing different attractions. Check out the trail map and follow the colour coded stainless steel markers along each trail emblazoned with the Harbour’s mascot, Pearl the Weedy Sea Dragon.

Just add sprinkles

Is there a better pairing than ice cream and the seaside? At Hillarys Boat Harbour, you’re spoilt for choice with a huge range of mouth-watering options to enjoy in the spring sunshine. Whether you feel like a custom creation from Cold Rock Ice Creamery, one of Ben & Jerry’s iconic flavours, an authentic Italian delight from Bellisimo Gelato, artisanal small-batch scoop from The Milk Barrel or something a little lighter from our friends at Fro-Yo – there’s something to suit every taste.

Linger longer

Feel the sand between your toes and the sun on your skin a little longer by booking a stay-cay at Hillarys Harbour Resort. With its fully self-contained apartments and spectacular views of the coast and marina, the Resort is the perfect place to base yourself whilst you explore all that Hillarys has to offer.

Bottomless Spring Shuffle
