Such a lovely walk, they are doing it up further on. We walked from the Mantra by the Mariner down to the Pier.

Very well maintained walk along the Hervey Bay foreshore. There are plenty of trees providing shade, an abundance of toilet stops, and plenty of spots for a BBQ or picnic. Manicured lawns and gardens makes for a great visit or photo shoot.

The Esplanade is quite long which has appeared problematic in its development. Some sections are well developed but other section look neglected. We enjoyed the walk/run/bike path as it meandered along the oceanside, very scenic with bars and cafes opposite. Plenty of benches and BBQ...More

The Esplanade runs along the coast - with a walkway on one side and restaurants, shops, cafes and apartments on the other side - and it goes for miles and miles! The walkway is paved which is shared with walkers and cyclists. There are areas...More

The path runs for kilometres along the coastline. It's a shared path with ample room for crowds of people, bikes etc. There is several playgrounds and workout stations along the way so you can turn your leisurely walk into a work out if you wish!...More

This pathway is very special because it runs the entire length of the foreshore at Hervey Bay. There are also lots of special spots to stop along the way, icecream shops, cafes and lots of public toilets. A lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Right on the coastline, this can be a relaxing walk or a fitness walk. No heat waves, just cool ocean breezes.

A pleasant ride along the seashore, from Scarness to Urangan. Stopping to take photos and to have a dip in the calm and inviting waters. Not to forget the boardwalks under the trees. One of the nicest experiences in Hervey Bay (and it's free!!!)

Gorgeous walk in the perpetual sea breeze with the beach on one side and shops, cafes and restaurants on the other. The whole walk is about 14 km but it is very to easy to split it up into a nice morning or evening stroll....More
