We travelled the full length of the esplanade twice by bicycle during our short stay in Hervey Bay. Most of the bike path is in the shade during the day, and there are free BBQs, playground equipment and gym equipment along the way. Public toilet facilities in several places. Not to mention numerous cafe's and restaurants, many with great ocean... More

The esplanade was closed for maintenance when we were there and you couldn't go round the point. But the cages and eateries were great

Nice atmosphere - grab a coffee and take in the bay. There are plenty of cafes and there is always the fish and chips. Barbecues are everywhere as well as bike trails. Failing all that there is of course the bay to play in

We have a 10 kilometre Esplanade along the length of the bay and there are no high rises on the beach side just parks, free BBQ's, free gym equipment, an absolute beachfront cafe Enzo's and the best part still 3 caravan parks right on the waterfront, so all in all an amazing place to visit. :-)

Nicely put together and constructed, this makes for a nice walk along the sea front. A easy house is spent walking along, but don't expect much more than a pleasant view

Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Quiet during the week, expecially as not school holidays. Lovely to stroll along and enjoy the beautiful water views. Lots of lovely restaurants and shops to explore. Great place to throw a line in and catch some fish or just site and enjoy the serenity..

The pathways are designed to be used for both cyclists and pedestrians and has recently been upgraded to be more efficient. There are loads of seating and BBQ areas all the way along the Esplanade which allows you to stop... More

We stayed on the Esplanade an it is a busy road so expect noise. The beach side has a green belt of trees which block views for much of the road. There is a great walkway on the beach side for those morning walks. Beautiful

Went out for an early morning run and ended up on the Esplanade, the view was breathtaking. Brilliant for a relaxing stroll with places to stop off for refreshments.
