This is a fabulous walk way that is very well maintained and level. Park areas have great play equipment for kids. There are plenty of cafes along the way to stop for a coffee or meal.

Staying on the Esplanade was great. We were central to all and it was just so relaxing. Great place to visit or live!

The esplanade goes forever and toilet, bbq and playground facilities everywhere. Landscaped gardens were lovely and well kept. Lovely for daily walks and rides :-)

Great place to walk and enjoy the view, however watch out for the bike riders. We walked about an hour and then enjoyed fish and chips at the end. Plenty a places to sit if you want to take a break along the way

This is a lovely walkway along the foreshore, one of the best I have seen, looking out to the water and Fraser Island the lovely sand and scenery, very relaxing...

Lovely esplanade, great bike tracks and very well maintained gardens. The esplanade runs for several kms with beach and park running the full length. Bike riding is the best way to see everything and also ride out onto the Pier.

I love it because it has toilets all along, bbq's, trees and playgrounds for the children. Oh and lots of drinking fountains as well, much needed when one is walking a long way, which is another feature of this esplanade. Then if you want a coffee or eats it is all on the other side
