Everything you need to know about the Hyatt brand in Australia. From the team at Australian Traveller magazine.
There are 7 Hyatt Hotels in Australia. The best Hyatt are hotels are referred to as “Park Hyatt”, and the two Park Hyatts in Australia are in Melbourne and Sydney. Jyatt Canberra bills itself as “by Park Hyatt”, which means for all intents and purposes you can consider the Hyatt Canberra a Park Hyatt.
In no particular order, the Hyatt Hotels in Australia are:
Sydney – Park Hyatt Hotel
Melbourne – Park Hyatt Hotel
Melbourne – Grand Hyatt Hotel
Gold Coast – Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove
Sunshine Coast – Hyatt Regency Coolum
Canberra – Park Hyatt Hotel
Perth – Hyatt Regency Perth

But the Hyatt Hotel Canberra has a venerable history that it’s proud to let people know (questionable trouser length...
