Beautiful!!

The Pier is an awesome place to view the daily sunsets in Hervey Bay. Plenty of pelicans waiting for a ‘cheap’ feed from the many fishermen trying their luck of the jetty.

Peaceful walk
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Great to walk out on the pier, take a coffee look back at the town and across to Frazer island, do some fishing and take it all in. Wonderful part of past history and it's free.

Lovely Walk
May 2021 • Couples
We were visiting the area and decided to walk along the Urangan Pier.
It was a lovely walk, with great views in all directions. Well worth a visit to take in the area and get your steps up.

It is a very good place for fishing (A bit over fishing) and a free walk with nice 360 degree Hervey bay view. If you notice, high tide and low tide are very different, the water is so flat, it is a magic place because of the Fraser Island.

Visited on Friday 23rd April. What a piece of history and well worth going to check out whilst enjoying a long walk to the end and back.

Easy walk with great views. Even better at Sunset

Easy and pleasant and fairly long walk. If you wanted to take someone for a long walk along a short pier this isn't the one! :)
The markets are on Wednesday and Saturday mornings which is an easy and pleasant add on to your pier walk. Enjoy.

Man-made and marvellous!

This is not the first pier to be built on this spot: the first was in the mid-1860s to take traffic and cargo to/from Brisbane on coastal steamers, necessitating a pier long enough to allow safe berthage in the relatively shallow waters of Hervey Bay. The pier at its longest was 1100 metres but is now a relative "minnow" at 880 metres. It is built entirely of wood, on piers similar to the one you see at Huntington Beach in California [remember the 60s hit "Under the Boardwalk"?]. Parking along the Esplanade at its southernmost point is easy, and it's a free exercise to walk the length of the pier above the pristine waters of Hervey Bay. Great exercise and even better views!
