We walked the Urangan section & drove along the entire way enjoying the beautiful bay views. Dayman Point was very interesting for its views, information items, park land & parking space.

Fancy a long walk because you’ll get one. The Esplanade stretches the length of Hervey Bay and is a paved walk that meanders beside the coastline. Lovely views and easily accessible to the beach. There’s plenty of seating and toilets along the way, and also...More
