The Esplanade at Hervey Bay is a great place to walk and enjoy the scenery. Wide paths and bike-ways allow room for all to wander. Stop for a coffee at one of the many Cafes or take a few steps to the east and explore the Beach. Either way there is plenty to do and see.

...that you'll drop dead before you finish :-). And if you get bored of the asphalt, there are plenty a stair to go down to the sand. Beach galore. Climb up again, cross the road, have a coffee or an ice cream and keep going.

We stayed in Hervey Bay for four nights and came here every day. It is amazing to watch the sun set and watch the bats starting to leave the trees. It is a very romantic quiet location and we especially enjoyed watching the little mud crabs. Will be back here if we get time.

I reckon it is about 9km give or take and me the lady wife in just over two and a half hours walked the beach..... One way on the beach and the return leg through the shadybots just in land. Toilets, water, cafés or just blast it. A nice work out.

Just like the Gold Coast we have the same here! Walk, run, jog, bike - you can do whatever you want for exercise and outdoor activity. Have a coffee along the way at many cafes etc.

Took an early morning walk and enjoyed the fact the path meandered along the waterfront but was mostly shaded by trees. Easy, flat walk.

We holidayed for a week and rode bikes nearly every day. Fantastic wide path allowed bikes to pass easily. Well maintained and gorgeous views along the way. We will be back!

You can stop almost anywhere along here and access the beach. Its well maintained and worth a walk. There are plenty of amenities along the way which is great for families with small kids.

Excellent, plenty of parks, seating areas lots to see and do, including great food outlets. Walk along the pier early morning or night is a must. Great views to Fraser Island.

Fantastic walk, with loads of people about. Would really recommend taking the time to walk or cycle the Esplanade. Wonderful views.
