Torquay

Boardwalks, playgrounds, and jetties make Torquay's Esplanade the perfect place for aquatic adventures, picnics and relaxation in Hervey Bay.

Stroll along the boardwalk and out on to the Torquay Jetty for great views of the Bay and beyond. The jetty is also a popular fishing spot at all tides.

Get active out on the water with the calm stinger-free waters ideal for water sports including skiing, sailing and canoeing.

Explore the Torquay precinct with its boutique shops, alfresco dining, hotels and resorts. Play or picnic at Torquay's beachside parks. Referred to by the locals as the 'train' park, Organ Park lets younger kids can have fun on the play train and other playground equipment while the adults can relax in the shaded grassed areas. See a sculpture of the Moha Moha - a mysterious sea creature spoken of in Aboriginal legend.

Exercise on the foreshore by following the walk and cycle trail and by using fitness equipment spaced along the pathway through Torquay.

Discover an underwater wonderland and dive with the resident dugongs at Torquay Reef. This section of reef is best accessed off the beach from Nielsen Park.

From Torquay, walk or cycle along the Hervey Bay Esplanade, which hugs the city's stunning coastline for over 16 kilometres between Gatakers Bay and the Urangan Boat Harbour. Follow the trail and discover interesting facts about our whales, sea creatures and heritage through interpretive signage dotted along the esplanade.
