About
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.

Visited on Saturday 25th February. I was staying nearby and went to check out the marina. It was well set out and maintained to a good standard. It is also the starting point for day trips to Frazer Island by boat.

Great Sandy Straits Marina gives plenty of entertainment watching the boats come in or out whilst sitting in one of the cafes, restaurants or the Beach Club. Really pleasant area to be in and there are some great businesses in the marina too.

Bob, Deb and Rob run the Marina. We were welcomed warmly and we have stayed for nine days. The service and facilities are excellent. You can tell that someone cares a lot about their customers. Having a rental Ute on site is awesome. We found all of the local businesses to be great. The weekend market is a cracker. Thanks guys and thank you Hervey Bay.

We have been at the marina for 4 weeks and could not speak more highly of them. The management Deb and Bob go out of their way to help you regardless of what you ask. We were on H22 a big berth on the T end and as we came in there were staff there to help us with the ropes.
The other good thing about this marina is the restaurants and shops in the complex which are great for a longer stays. We will be going back next year.

We were staying at a nearby resort and we went for a walk to watch the sunrise. It was great watching all the hustle and bustle of boats leaving to go out into the Straits at that early hour.
Later we drove to the Marina and walk through the area. Nice shops and cafes and the marina is very impressive.

Just a wonderful place to sit and watch and relax. The marina is not large but the shops are good, the staff helpful and a convenient pick up spot for tours.
