Arriving on Fraser Island, the world melts away behind you as paradise unfolds before you. Pristine beaches call you to unwind on their white shores and dive deep into their crystal waters, ancient rainforests beckon you to soothe your soul in their cooling beauty and endless sand dunes bid you to explore their vast lakes and trickling creeks.
And nestled into the World-Heritage listed surrounds, Kingfisher Bay Resort invites you to relax and indulge as you escape to paradise. An immersive ecotourism experience, Kingfisher Bay Resort welcomes every type of escape, whether you’re after a romantic getaway, an active adventure, or simply some quality time with the kids.
Its range of accommodation, from resort rooms to villas, houses and lodges, promises a peaceful stay with nature as your constant companion. Wake up to an orchestra of frogs and birdsong, spot echidnas, goannas and squirrel gliders in their natural habitat, and take in the kaleidoscope of colours as the surrounding bush is bathed in the setting sun.
Your total immersion in Fraser Island life continues throughout the restaurants at Kingfisher Bay Resort. Drawing their inspiration from the island’s traditional owners – the Butchulla people – the chefs present exquisite dishes reflecting the Aussie bush heritage with a hint of Fraser Island on the plate. Family favourites including burgers and salads are on offer at The Sand Bar and Bistro, while bush-tucker infused sensations are the signature fare at Seabelle Restaurant.
Choose Your Own Adventure
And if native ingredients hold a particular fascination for you, the Bushtucker Talk and Taste experience will see you learning all about Fraser Island’s incredible edible feast. Discover from a chef how to use the ingredients and sample their delights. This is just one in a series of activities the Kingfisher Bay Resort team has ready for you to enjoy.
Take in all of the iconic Fraser Island sights on the Beauty Spots Tour. This full-day adventure led by an expert guide takes you to gorgeous Lake McKenzie, Central Station and Wanggoolba Creek, 75 Mile Beach’s famous highway, the relaxing fresh waters of Eli Creek and more. All from the comfort of an air-conditioned four-wheel-drive coach.
Get the kids to step away from their screens as they join the Junior Eco Rangers programs. By the time they’ve joined in fun and games on the beach, been on scavenger hunts and bushwalks, sung their hearts out around the campfire and gazed at the stars they’ll be too exhausted to log on as they log out for the day.
And you’ll be ready to join them in blissed out abandon after your curated spa journey in the Island Day Spa. Rest, reflect and relax in pure tranquillity as massage and beauty therapists deliver the treatments you crave.
Then you’ll be ready for adventure again with a long list of activities still to savour.
From August to October, Fraser Island becomes Australia’s number one whale-watching destination, so take a cruise for a magical day out. Speaking of fun on the water, there are paddleboards and kayaks to take into the great outdoors, or keep your feet on dry land with a guided nature walk. And of course, you can always just relax by the pool if that’s your idea of the ideal escape.
However you choose to unwind at Kingfisher Bay Resort, you’ll do so knowing you’re treading lightly on the earth. Dedicated to ecotourism and an inspiration to others around the world, Kingfisher Bay holds an impressive list of green credentials including nine Advanced Ecotourism Certifications from Ecotourism Australia for its tours and accommodation.
Environmental integration has been the focus from the start and today, Kingfisher Bay Resort’s multiple ecotourism awards are testament to its pristine approach to protecting its unique home. If you’d like to see this eco-commitment in action, you’re invited to add a back-of-house tour to your activities list. Explore the inner workings of the resort, as well as the sustainable practices they implement, including their award-winning architecture and landscaping.
