The precinct boasts a 120 room Mantra at Sharks hotel. The hotel will provide accommodation for sports teams, families of athletes and the general community.
Southport Sharks has many catering options available for all training areas including private dining options. Our expert events team can assist in tailoring dietary requirements to athletes of all levels.
This facility has been tried and tested by:

- Gold Coast Suns (AFL)
- Southport Sharks (NEAFL)
- Brisbane Roar (A League)

We like to be somewhere where accommodation is close to the venue and away from distractions - this fit the bill nicely. We have a great deal of experience with meals provided for our conferences and Sharks is by far the best.

I’d like to congratulate you and your team on a tremendous effort for our charity fundraiser Phil Whitehead Herman’s Hermits Concert. Thank you for assisting with the planning and execution and for the last minute changes. The team was super friendly and efficient, particularly your team member who looked after my table on her very first shift. Well done to all!
