Pialba

Pialba is the shopping, cultural and sporting heart of Hervey Bay with a Water Park, golf course, art gallery, interpretive discovery centre and a range of shopping, from major centres to boutiques.

Make a splash at WetSide, a zero-depth Water Park on the seafront at Pialba that both educates and thrills with water spouts, a giant bucket, fountains, slides, surfing as well as interpretive and hands-on displays.

Play at the Pines, a popular foreshore park located near WetSide and see the remains of Aboriginal fish traps which are visible at low tide.

Get active at Seafront Oval's sea-inspired all abilities playground, which features a wheelchair accessible carousel, custom-built shipwreck, swirling maze and skate park.

Visit the Tooan Tooan flying fox colony on the Pialba foreshore where three species of flying fox hang in the trees at the mouth of the creek until the sun goes down and they take to the sky in search of food - an incredible sight. Interpretive signage explains their role in regenerating native forest.

Pialba was once the site of Hervey Bay's first settlement and its history can still be seen in remaining heritage buildings along its original Main Street, where Hervey Bay's major commercial and retail district had its early beginnings.

Pialba is also Hervey Bay's educational heart - home to the University of Southern Queensland's Fraser Coast Campus and the city Library.

From Pialba, follow the links Corridor, a landscaped environmental walk and cycle corridor along the former rail line which once connected Pialba's Central Business District with this historic Urangan Pier.
