“An asset to Hervey Bay”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

As the Esplanade is so long we hired a novelty four seater bike so our young children could sit on the front of the bike to enable us to see as much of the Esplanade as possible. This was a great way to see more of the Esplanade with little kids. There are lots of great little parks and playgrounds scattered along the beachfront, not to mention little beaches, jettys and loads of great coffee shops. A must do experience when in Hervey Bay.

“Ideal place to unwind and relax”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The Hervey Bay esplanade is one beautiful place to unwind and relax.
There are numerous places to stop and learn more about the bay or simply do some people watching.
The walkway has lots of shade for hot days.
For people who like to get a bit more energetic, this is a great place for a job or exercises / yoga in an ideal setting.

“Escapades on the Esplanade”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

It is up to 10 kms in length so it's a good idea to get a bike to travel the length of it. Plenty of cafes to stop and have a coffee or bite to eat. There is also exercise equipment to work out on along the way if you are really healthy.

“Lovely relaxed walk”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Walking from Urangan Pier to Scarness makes for a lovely morning or afternoon walk. With the ocean to the east, walk along the designated footpath with parrots and ibis in abundance. Lots of facilities along the way which are all very clean and well serviced.
