The Fraser Coast Council do an amazing job with the Esplanade. There are BBQ's seats along the foreshore, shaded areas for families, toilets and great walking/riding paths. This is a great place to enjoy the beautiful Hervey Bay weather.

Love, love, LOVE going for a bike ride along here, just beautiful! We were staying not far from the Esplanade, near the Urangan Pier, so we would go for a bike ride almost every day, right up as far as Wetside, have a cool down under the water sprinklers, then cycle back to the Ice Creamery, have a break and...

This is a great esplanade, its one of the longest I've seen and well maintained pathways and seating areas along the way. Many people using it on a Saturday morning, especially joggers.
