Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island, Fraser Island

Kingfisher Bay Resort is located north of the Sunshine Coast and is the gateway to the World Heritage wilderness of Fraser Island, its ancient rainforest, spectacular fresh-water lakes and famous 75-Mile Beach.

The resort nestles among tree-covered dunes on the edge of the calm waters of the Great Sandy Strait and is a paradise for boating, fishing, swimming, bush walking, four-wheel driving and just enjoying the magnificent, natural beauty of this island.

Kingfisher rangers guide a variety of four-wheel-drive tours to explore Fraser Island. Rangers also have a daily program of nature walks and activities such as bird watching, stargazing and fishing clinics.

Dolphin search cruises operate all year round except from August to October when there are daily whale watch cruises to see the migrating humpback whales.

Kingfisher Bay Resort has won five Australian Tourism Awards and the resort and all tours have been awarded Advanced National Ecotourism Accreditation.

At Kingfisher Bay you can do as much or as little as you want – relax with a cocktail by one of the four swimming pools, play tennis, simply bubble in a spa, indulge at the natural therapy and beauty clinic or just go fishing and get chef to cook your catch.

Enjoy Australian bush foods and wonderful fresh seafood at any of the three restaurants. The resort has an excellent program to introduce guests to Australian food and wine.

A Junior Eco Ranger program for kids includes art, walks, orienteering, rope courses and canoeing, spotlighting for animals, stargazing and camping with campfires with damper making, story telling and sing-a longs. Evening activities include dinner.

A purpose built Kids’ Club and playground cares for the under fives and baby-sitting is also available.

Please visit the web site to take virtual tours of the resort, the accommodation and the facilities.
