Urangan Pier

Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

A must see attraction at Queensland's Fraser Coast is Hervey Bay's famous and historic Urangan Pier - it's one of the longest in Australia and stretches for almost one kilometre into the ocean.

A walk to the end will reward with spectacular views of Hervey Bay and the chance to see schools of fish, stingrays or pods of dolphin just metres out to sea.

Another must do is fishing off the Pier. It is one of the best fishing spots for people of all ages, and is the perfect place to catch whiting; one of Hervey Bay's most sought after fish.

Picnic or enjoy fish and chips by the beach in the parkland around the pier and explore the Urangan precinct with its boutique shops, alfresco dining, resorts and clubs.

Pier Park is a starting point for the links corridor, a landscaped environmental walk and cycle corridor along the former rail line which once connected the Pier with Pialba's Central Business District.

The water next to the pier is one of the Bay's best locations for windsurfing or kite surfing with surfing conditions suitable for beginners to experts.
