Nice hot day for a swim. But too many people taking the same opportunity as ours to swim. The place was packed. Accessibility is easy for visitors via train (Warwick) and then a short trip on bus #423. Many f&b places to have your lunch too.

A nice place to take the family to walk around during the day for burgers, pizzas, or shopping for tourist items, t shirts, and the like. There is a large lagoon for swimming in the summer and a water park as well. For those interested there are establishments serving alcoholic drinks for later in the day.

This is my second visit to Hillarys (last was 6 years ago) and it is well worth a trip. Great selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Plenty there for children too. Beautiful beach a very short walk away

As a frequent visitor, just love the laid back feeling of being on the water and and being able to relax. With so many Restaurants, Cafes, Bars, Takeaway food options plus a variety of shops and the Wet 'n' Wild water park there is plenty on offer to satisfy most people's curiosity Hillary's has something to satisfy everyone.

A great place to unwind and enjoy a meal and a drink by the sea. Lots of eating places here. Relax and take in that sea air.
