Slightly bias as my partner proposed to me on the pier with the lights from the esplanade in the background but it is a beautiful relaxing place. We walked along the beach the following day on beautiful smooth sand and had brunch in one of the cafes.

Fantastic Esplanade. Great walkway with enough space and access for bikes. Interesting things to see and do - outdoor gyms, picnic tables, play grounds, toilets and showers. Lots of walkways to the beach and many shops dotted along the way. Well worth a visit on a sunny day. A good view of Hervey Bay and the islands.

Just across the road from our accommodation. The water is crystal clear and the beach is very clean. Nice to walk along the beach in low tide.

If you just want to walk, run or ride a bike what a place to be wright next to the water. Over 10kms long from one end to the other.There are seats all along to rest or little exercise spots to work out.

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.
