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

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.
