Gifts, art and souvenirs at the Great Sandy Straits Marina

ART, gifts and souvenirs will once again be available at the Great Sandy Straits Marina with local artists coming together to showcase their talents in a new gallery.

Bringing together over 30 local artisans, the gallery will feature Elfotography Hervey Bay by Ellen Foulds, showcasing the spectacular scenes of Hervey Bay and Harbour Gift Gallery, a local art and handmade shop.

The driver behind the idea, Ellen Foulds said she was excited to be bringing new, local products to the Marina.

"Local products that encompass all the Fraser Coast has to offer will be the main feature of the gallery," Ms Foulds said.

"We have some really fantastic artists in our region, which we are really looking forward to showcasing."

Tas Webber, Manager of Tourism and Events for Fraser Coast Opportunities said he was honoured to open the gallery.

"The Marina is such a beautiful part of the Fraser Coast and it’s great to see some of our talented local artisans get together to utilise this space," Mr Webber said.

"These are award winning artists that have been selling work locally and internationally, so we should be really proud to show what they, and the Fraser Coast, has to offer."

Harbour Gift Gallery at the Great Sandy Straits Marina, 17 Buccaneer Drive, Urangan will be open seven days a week from 9am-5pm.

Elfotography Hervey Bay will be open Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm.
