Depending on the option selected when booking, your Hillarys experience starts with pickup in Perth for the 15-mile (25-km) drive north of the city to Hillarys Boat Harbour, which boasts a prime location on the Indian Ocean. If you do not select the transport option, you must make your own way to and from Hillarys.
When you arrive at this popular family destination, enjoy its array of family-friendly attractions during free time before your whale-watching cruise departs. There are many ways to keep yourself and your kids entertained, from open-air restaurants to shopping, waterslides, a beach, playground and much more (all food and activities are at your own expense).
By 10am, you must head to the south side of Hillarys to catch your whale-spotting tour, which coincides with the annual whale migration along the coast of Western Australia. Set off across the ocean, keeping your eyes peeled for humpback whales and other marine life like dolphins. Your cruise returns to Hillarys around 12:30pm, when you are again free to enjoy more of Hillarys independently until return transport to Perth in the early evening (if option selected).
If you select the Aquarium of Western Australia option when booking, head inside this impressive aquarium and marine center to see exhibits that feature coral reef, jellyfish, stingrays, turtles, seadragons, sharks and more.
