Overview
More
The Great Sandy Straits Marina is located in the Urangan boat Harbour at Hervey Bay. We have 176 berths and cater for 8-30m vessels. Our Marina is situated on the doorstep of the whale watch capital in Queensland and is a perfect place to visit as you explore the beautiful sheltered waters of Hervey Bay and the Great Sandy Marine Park. The Great Sandy Straits Marina overlooks the beautiful world heritage listed Fraser Island and is a warm and friendly marina well serviced by buses, with the airport located a short 10 minutes away. Our facilities include toilets, showers, laundry and designated members parking. We also have a hire car available at reasonable rates. We have commercial operators who offer a range of whale watching, fishing and adventure tours. Within the Marina precinct there are restaurants, cafes, a souvenir shop and the Hervey Bay Boat Club is just a five minute walk away. The Break Free Great Sandy Straits Resort and The Mantra Resort both overlook the Marina and harbour precinct. Make this your next port of call.

The marina is surrounded by a variety of shops, cafes & restaurants & there is a well maintained walkway around, plenty of parking nearby for those visiting the information kiosk or looking to embark on a trip to one of the many nearby islands.

Visited the Marina for breakfast at a small cafe, not sure of the name, on the deck overlooking the Marina and dinner at Whale Bay Asian Cuisine. Both meals were excellent. Helpful friendly staff at both establishments.

Picturesque spot surrounded by plenty of places to eat or get a coffee. Parking is easy and free. Lots of birds to watch. We enjoyed a view of a cormorant sat on top of a model owl - supposedly to scare the birds away?
