Waves crash over the Urangan seawall

WATCH: King tide pounds Hervey Bay beaches on Friday

SPECTATORS have been out in force to see waves pound Hervey Bay beaches during a 4.16m king tide which peaked at 9.38am on Friday.

Children played in the salt spray as water was forced metres into the air over the Urangan seawall.

More people gathered on the Scarness Pier to watch waves crash into rocks while others investigated the mini-inland sea that had formed in the park near the All Abilities Playground in Pialba after saltwater washed over the dunes.

Seawater rushed part of the way up the path leading from the Hervey Bay Surf Life Saving Club at Torquay but there was still plenty of sand in front of the clubhouse.
