Just outside of the main town area, this boardwalk is a nice easy walk that most people should be able to do. Not particularly scenic, but good for a stroll after doing some shopping or grabbing something to eat.

We used this boardwalk daily to get from our hostel into the CBD. So well kept and so many things to see; history boards, wildlife and sculptures.
It seems really safe day or night as it’s really well lit up.
Just keep watch for the croc signs (scared us on our first day there)

No matter the time of day the Esplanade Boardwalk is buzzing, a great place for an evening stroll, sit and watch the world go by, watch the waters wildlife at low and high tides, stop at the huge playground, stop for a swim in the pool, there is so much to see and do whilst walking the Boardwalk. Just across the road you a spoilt for choice with cafes, restaurants, night markets and shops!

Large expanse of beach side public space with huge relatively shallow (less than 1m) swimming area. Good for families and relaxing . Very clean and well maintained. Only downside is the lack of any shade from the broiling sun.

So much to see and do here. Loads of places to eat and drink. Spotless barbecue areas all free. Loads of play areas for kids plus the pool for free. Buzzing at night as well as day.
