Looking for that perfect thing to that is free and is an awesome day out for the whole family and your mates? Then Scarness Pier and foreshore is the "go to" outdoor adventure all year around.
From early morning breathtaking colours of sunrises with early morning yoga and cycling in the park to daytime beach activities, events and fireworks late at night or walking the dog, Scarness Park and Pier has everything for everyone at any time.
A once a month relaxing "Sunday in the Park" event is held on the first Sunday of every month at Scarness Park opposite the Beach House Hotel and Scarness Takeway. Sunday in the Park offers free entertainment, market stalls and other activities.
There is plenty of sheltered rotunda BBQ picnic areas at the park and wide open grassy spaces to kick a ball in. The bicyle walking track of Hervey Bay, which stretches from Urangan in the south to Point Vernon in the north passes through the entire length of the park and is a perfect break on the way to your destination for a quick stop to enjoys views as far away as the northern point of Fraser Island.
A kids playground is situated on a soft surface near Enzo's on the Beach with ample toilet facilities and seating. The park hosts a large raised covered stage area that is fantastic for small concerts.
Scarness Pier is famous for fishing, you can catch tasty reef fish, whiting by the millions, bream, snapper, flathead and even tuna with the occasional small shark jumping on the line.
The only thing that Scarness Beach is missing is great waves but don't let that stop you. Float around or board ride, catamaran or kayak, swim like a dolphin or go snorkelling because sometimes it's great not to have a huge swell. With a white sandy beach that stetches for miles, the beach is perfect for relaxing and exploring and sifting along through the tiny bits of washed up coral and gorgeous sea shells.
