Made from abandoned fishing nets and recycled plastics, these ghost nets are colourful woven sculptures featuring an outrigger canoe, fish, turtles, squid and jellyfish.
These works show peoples connections to the sea and inspire awareness of ocean pollution, recycling and promote conservation of the marine environment.
A seemingly harmless piece of discarded fishing net, left to drift in the ocean can strangle a sea turtle travelling to its nesting ground. Sharks, fish and other marine life all over the world have also suffered similar fates through entanglement in fishing nets.

Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour are the proud owners of two bee hives which will provide honey for our guests as well as serving to pollenate nearby plants in the region.
Joshua Bounday, our assistant front office manager, was largely responsible for realising the vision of getting bee hives at the Hotel, with his extensive background and knowledge as an apiarist lending his services to ensure that this dream realised.
Housing and harvesting honey from beehives is part of AccorHotels Planet 21, an initiative where a compromise is struck between providing travellers a comfortable and convenient stay whilst implementing methods and processes to reduce our carbon footprint and movement towards a sustainable and responsible company such as low flow toilets, eco-designed beds, eco-certified soaps and cleaning products, sustainable foods with an emphasis on locally grown produce and a greater commitment to recycling.
It is anticipated that future harvests will provide enough honey to use as guest amenities with surplus honey to be used in The Ternary restaurant as an inclusion in the buffet breakfast.
Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour is currently displaying an original artwork by a talented indigenous artist, Jacob Toomey called 'The Gathering Place'
The piece was commissioned by the Hotel in acknowledgement of our local Gadigal community as the original custodians of the land upon which the Hotel sits. We thank Jacob for sharing his talent and welcome all to come view the piece in the Hotel.
“The Gathering Place” aims to capture the journey taken by many across the numerous oceans and seas of the world. A journey which leads them to this land, traditional Gadigal land of Sydney where the hotel sits.
The centre piece portrays the area of the Novotel and Sydney Harbour, and the places of origin spread across the canvas symbolised through the traditional circular symbols. Ultimately The Gathering Place has the goal of detailing the significance of travel and the beautiful land in which the Novotel thrives amongst.
