From Port Vernon to Urangan right along the waterfront is a fantastic pathway. It is great for bike riding , walking or for the more energetic running. There are views of Fraser Island and the bay as a bonus.

Lovely walk along the esplanade with plenty to see and do along the walk. We hired a four seater bike with the children and went for a ride stopping at the numerous playgrounds along the path

Rode the Esplanade on a 4-wheel bike hired from Aquavue Cafe and Watersports and discovered that it has to be one of the most beautiful settings in the world. White sandy beaches with the most crystal clear water. Definitely a must!

Enjoyed Cairns and the esplanade area, the facilities here are top notch as is the view and area. Have a picnic, a swim or lay by a tree and read. Something for everyone.
