A good place to walk in Hervey Bay

You can walk for miles along the Esplanade with views of the water but the walk is tree and palm lined so it is not too hot. Cafes abound along the way.

We made a day of it, hired bikes and off we went riding the whole length of the esplanade enjoying the sunshine and stopping along the way to enjoy the different spots. Such a beautiful town!

The Esplanade is another lovely place to visit as the paths cater for cycling running and walking. It makes for a very pleasant walk with the scenery of the bay and plenty of parks for picnics which I remember well from my childhood days. There was many a time when my grandparents and I stopped for a picnic and took... More
