HiHillarys is a northern coastal suburb in the local government area of the City of Joondalup. It is part of the Whitfords precinct, and is approximately 21 kilometres north-northwest of the Perth CBD.
Hillarys is serviced by the Mitchell Freeway heading both north and south, with Whitfords train station only a short drive away, making it easy to gain access to the Perth CBD or further north. A drive to the city will take around 25 minutes, but that’s easy to forgive when you’re living in a seaside location!
Hillarys is mostly a residential suburb, with good access to shopping facilities including Westfield Whitford City, a large shopping centre in its northeast, and the smaller Hillarys Shopping Centre for commercial services. If you’re not short on time, there is also Lakeside Shopping Centre in Joondalup – Perth’s second largest centre with shops to keep you occupied for many hours, and only a 15-minute drive.
Hillarys is popular for its vast variety of high-quality restaurants, vibrant pubs, stunning beaches, amenities and entertainment along the West Coast Highway strip. It is also home to the only aquarium in Perth, AQWA. AQWA is just one of the destinations that forms part of The Marina development, with Hillarys Yacht Club, and Sorrento Quay also being popular with locals.
Several parks and walkways of various sizes are situated in the suburb, with the largest being Hillarys Beach Park just north of Hillarys Boat Harbour. Hillarys Beach Park now includes a large shaded public playground with swings, climbing units, nature play elements, sand play and all-abilities play. The park also has many undercover picnic settings, benches and barbecues, new tree planting, an improved irrigation system, drink fountains and universal access footpaths. Other parks with playgrounds include Mawson Park, Hillarys Park and Broadbeach Park.
Hillarys is served by Hillarys Primary School, founded in 1973 and formerly known as Lymburner, and an Anglican college, St Mark’s Anglican Community School, a coeducational day school built in 1986. Padbury Senior High School is another option as this falls within the catchment area.
