Hilton is a suburb that is very much under rated and overlooked.
Formally known as Hilton Park, this suburb has seen a flourish of growth that is far outshining it’s sister Fremantle suburbs. With a relaxation of some R-Code and council restrictions together with market movements. Dubbed the “garden suburb”, it has seen a flood of buyers from families, developers and investors taking advantage of it’s prime location near Fremantle, low prices and largely under developed areas.
Slowly, Hilton’s demographic is changing to a more younger and affluent category with young families, FIFO, speculative investors and first home owners all looking to make Hilton their home.
Hilton enjoys tree lined streets, numerous parks, cute little cafes and local family-style shops.
