“I am honoured to be part of Novotel Melbourne South Wharf’s opening team. This hotel development, along with the MCEC expansion project, represents one of the largest and most significant infrastructure changes to Melbourne’s tourism and convention industry,” said Erickson.

Novotel Melbourne South Wharf stands proudly in one of Melbourne’s oldest locations, the historic South Wharf precinct. Contrasting the Maritime Docks and cargo sheds, is the contemporary architecture of Melbourne’s newest buildings and attractions. The hotel is complemented with direct access to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC), soon to be the largest convention and exhibition centre in the Southern Hemisphere. Additionally some of Melbourne’s best bars, dining and shopping locations are located moments away in the neighbouring wharfs and cargo sheds.
