Hillarys – Perth, Western Australia
Hillarys is a suburb of the Australian capital city Perth, Western Australia, and is about 21 km northwest of downtown Perth. Bounded on the west by the Indian Ocean, Hillarys is located in the local government area (LGA) of City of Joondalup, with an area of approximately 6.3 square kilometres. As of the 2018 census, Hillarys had a population of 10,680 people.
Until the 1950’s, the only inhabitants of Hillarys were the family of Bertram John Hillary, a fisherman who settled there during the Great Depression, and for whom Hillarys is named. The Australian Army used the beach during World War II, and noted it as “Hillary’s Beach”in their records.
The suburb of Hillarys emerged during the development of the coastal area of Whitford by the local government authority City of Wanneroo. This development included building Westfield Whitford City, a retail shopping centre that opened in 1978, and which currently boasts nearly 300 tenants. At 76.000+ square metres, Westfield Whitford City is currently Perth’s largest shopping centre.
The population of Hillarys grew slowly until Hillarys Boat Harbour was built in preparation for 1987’s America’s Cup, in which Australia would defend the trophy it won in 1983. This, coupled with the development of Westfield Whitford City, led to accelerated growth in the area. Now a thriving residential community, Hillarys offers a charming beachfront escape; both for residents of Perth eager to enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, and for travelers from all over Australia and the world.
In addition to Westfield Whitford City and Hillarys Boat Harbour, some of Hillarys many attractions include:
