Hilary's Boat Harbour & Dog Beach

sunny 29 °C

Hilary's Boat Harbour
Hillarys Boat Harbour was the first such major marina in the north metropolitan region of Perth.
Construction of the new Harbour commenced in September 1985. Boat launching facilities were completed in October 1986 and boats started moving into pen moorings two months later, just before the start of the 1987 America's Cup Challenge Series.
Since opening in 1988, Hillarys Boat Harbour has been a premier recreational destination for Perth locals and visitors. In addition to boat pens, the Harbour offers a wide range of restaurants, attractions, activities, shops, and services catering to fishermen, boaters, beach goers, tourists and local residents.

These bluebottle jellyfish had been in the news at the time, as there was a lot of them in the area. Bluebottles are the most common cause of jellyfish stings in Australia.

The dog beach at Hillarys is a designated beach reserve with plenty of space for dogs to run and enjoy the surf.
Badger & Karma love it!
It's great to be able to let them run free, and not worry about other dogs - all they care about is someone to throw the ball!

Having picked Sammy up for a few days in the area, the first stop was Hilary's - welcome to the west coast!

Nothing like some cocktails and fresh calamari to enjoy with the sunshine
