If you love boating, a good thing to do is hire a boat from Hillary's Boat Harbour and go out fishing or sight seeing. Here's a link below that might be helpful.
Here's a pic of our new boat on the 1st launch :o)
We stayed in a huge, modern house within walking distance to Mullaloo Beach. It was great as there were 3 couples and 3 children, and we have plenty of space. All for under $200 (aud) a night. We recommend it. The Ocean Reef Boat Harbour was also walking distance and the kids loved fishing there. Have a look at http://www.dukesapartments.com/trafalgar_retreat.shtml
If you have kids, then Hillarys Boat Harbour is the place to spend a lovely day.
Just drop the kids at the Waterslides, and you can spend a lovely day wandering around checking out the sites and having a lovely lunch at Jettys or Sharkeys.
Yes...something for everyone! :o)
About 10 minutes up the road is Hillarys Boat Harbour, a 'must see' if you're visiting Perth. You can get there on a bus from Warwick Train Station.
Hillarys Boat Harbour has accommodation, lots of quaint shops, ferries to Rottnest Island, great restaurants, yummy fish and chips, Underwater world, water slides & of course a nice safe swimming beach.
Then why not try bike riding? Perth has bike paths everywhere!! There's even one all the way from Perth north, past Hillarys. You can even jump on the train with your bike back to Perth if you get tired.
The first thing we did when we moved here is go down to sit and watch a sunset. This is one of the pix I took. Isn't it beautiful!!!
Everyone here loves to take some chairs down and sit on the dunes with a glass of wine watching the sunsets. It's a favourite pasttime of West Australians in summer.
