Hillarys Boat Harbour is a marina and tourist precinct located in Hillarys, north of Perth, Western Australia and on the Indian Ocean.

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.

The facility has been extensively upgraded during 2008 to incorporate a new boardwalk, tavern and retail outlets. A feature of this upgrade is a drawbridge arrangement to allow boats to be moored inside the network of boardwalks.

Hillarys is also home to AQWA - The Aquarium of Western Australia which showcases the marine life and unique regions of Western Australia's 12,000 km coastline. The aquarium is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Other attractions in and around the harbour include helicopter flights, a waterslide and putt-putt course as well as fishing charters & cruises.
