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.

Interpretive signage explains their role in regenerating native forest.

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.
