Marriott to open Sheraton resort in Hervey Bay with 400-pax conference space


Marriott International has announced it will open a new Sheraton resort at Hervey Bay in Queensland.

Part of a $450 million mixed use waterfront project, the luxury resort will offer 223 rooms, a 400-pax function and conference space and destination rooftop bar.

Sheraton ambassador and celebrity gardening expert Jamie Durie will work on the Hervey Bay Esplanade Resort’s environmental footprint.


“We all know that K’gari is paradise and with the internationally recognised Sheraton brand behind it the world will too,” he said.

“A destination hotel with the pedigree of Sheraton gracing the Esplanade in Hervey Bay will be a magnificent drawcard for tourists both across Australia and the world.

“Hervey Bay will become a landmark destination and a must-see on our international guests ‘visit Australia checklist’.”


The project is being developed by Sunny Beach Land, with director Dan Cuda saying the new resort would put the Fraser Coast region “firmly on the map as a world-class tourism destination”.

“The potential contribution this would make to the Fraser Coast economy, local businesses and employment is simply massive and too good of an opportunity to miss,” he told The Courier Mail.
