Well worth hiring a bike but just take a walk and enjoy! The Jetty is a long walk with expansive ocean views and if you are lucky you'll see someone pull in a fish!

What a fabulous place to walk or cycle along the beachfront with great views and nice pathway winding through trees and lovely gardens and green grass. Also lots of great Cafes to sample along the way 🌻

An easy, flat walk within easy reach of a variety of shops and conveniences, with exceptional views of the bay and in the distance Fraser Island. The esplanade is also suitable for cycling and if you go at the end of the day, the chances are good for a stunning sunset.

The Esplanade in Hervey Bay is beautiful. The scenery of the beach and the walking track all the way along the Esplanade is fantastic, with interesting facts and beautiful trees and manicured areas along the way. I loved it here.

This is a really nice part of the world. We started at the Urangan pier and walked for a few hours. Along the way there are points of interest, jetties, coffee shops and of course the beach

We came down to the Esplanade each day we were in Hervey Bay for a nice walk along the foreshore. There are many eateries along the way to stop over for a drink or food.

It goes for approx 12 kilometers along the water and various beaches and is paved all the way from the Boat Marina via the... More

We were here for a short holiday. We have been coming to this area for years and you can see the progress the Council has made to the esplanade walk/Cycle way. Great to let the Kids off the lesh and ride their bikes in front. You can ride from Pialba all the way to the Urangan Jetty which is a... More
