Once again the maintenance and upkeep is superb with shady grassed areas, walking track, beautiful beaches and a variety of shopping and places to enjoy a meal or snack

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

In need of some work to upgrade the pathway. Walking along the esplanade was not comfortable or relaxing with overhanging trees, cracks in the path and definitely not wide enough. Lucky the beach is only twenty meters away.

The esplanade is very long but a scenic walk along Hervey Bay and Urangan. Great to walk, jog or even bike ride. Public toilets, bins, picnic tables, BBQS and even gym equipment is along the esplanade. Nice way to explore the area and great for...More

We enjoyed lovely views and good exercise as we biked from town out to the point. It was miserably hot and humid, so stopping for a swim was delightful!
