Where else can you walk continuously in the one direction overlooking the ocean, moving in and out of the trees, passing playgrounds, picnic / barbecue areas, cafes, restaurants, and ice creameries? Not to mention the safe beaches for miles and miles. For the fitness focussed...More

A fantastic flat Esplanade to walk, run or bike ride along while taking in the fantastic view of the beach. This is also pet friendly. Heaps of car parking all the way along the esplanade. A must visit while in Hervey Bay

Park like area all along the shore with cycling track, great for bike riding or walking along the shore. Easy access to the beach too.

Very well maintained nature strip with wide walkways to accommodate walkers and cyclists. The mown lawns with plantings of native trees and flowering shrubs attract many birds including the colourful (and noisey) lorikeets. There access points to the beach at regular intervals.
