Hilton is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Fremantle.

The suburb has an eclectic mixture of weatherboard, fibro and brick dwellings. The suburb is undergoing extensive urban renewal and recently more 3 and 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes have been built.

Its post-World War II design was under a state government initiative known as "garden suburbs" which meant wide verges and single homes on large blocks.

The northern precinct of Hilton contains a number of laneways and the village centre (on the north side of South Street) comprising a greengrocer, a butcher, a hair salon, a cafe, a post office and a liquor merchant.

South Street, Paget Street and Carrington Street contain most of the remaining retail activity in Hilton, including a public bar, a supermarket, an Indian restaurant, a pizzeria and a solar product retail shop.

Hilton is approximately five minutes drive from central business district of Fremantle and from the Indian Ocean.
