I often visit Kingfisher. The rooms are standard but it is all about location. The island has so much to offer from the lounge lizard to the adventurer. Def a favourite family holiday hot spot. A must do for the bucket list, but be sure to respect the wildlife!

We celebrated my wife's birthday with a very enjoyable two-night stay based at one of the resort's hotel rooms. Although owning a soft-roader SUV, we travelled as foot passengers on the ferry from River Heads and opted for exploring the island via the excellent one day 'beauty spots' tour. We liked the way this large, award-winning hotel unobtrusively blends into... More

We stayed 3 nights in a self contained villa. We hired a 4 wheel drive on the mainland and took over food for breakfast and lunch. Dined out at all 3 restaurants for dinner. Villa- it was a 4 levelled property, up a steep road but only a 3 minute walk from the main resort. Although the villa decor was... More

We have enjoyd 4 wonderful days here on Fraser Island. Facilities and activities are varied to allow you to do as much as you like and as little as you like.

Dear Forests2 Thank you for taking the time to respond and it's great to see you enjoyed a four-day family holiday with us. Service is one area that we are spending a bit of time in as we roll out Accor's Peopleology program with our staff, so it is disappointing to read that we've let you down in that area.... More

We stayed 4 nights, and had a great time. 4 nights, for us, was the right length of time to do the activities and still relax by the pool. Excellent holiday destination for almost-teen family. Canoeing and beauty spots tours were great. Staff were typically young and from overseas - so not always experienced but friendly and outgoing. Our tour... More

Hi Govett It's always great to see guests exploring the island, but also finding some time for a little down time and relaxation on Fraser's beautiful western side. We appreciate you taking the time to review. More

Date of Stay 5th-8th August 2014 We visited Fraser and the Kingfisher Resort as part of a 4 week road trip in Queensland. I'd seen some mixed reviews so I wasn't sure what to expect but the resort is excellent. It is large and around by the resort at main departure times quite busy but it's been sympathetically developed. It's... More

Our stay at the resort was a well earned double birthday treat after a busy year. Overall we enjoyed the stay and are considering returning - but it's now competing with the lure of similar resorts that we haven't visited yet. If we were to return there are a few things we'd do differently: bring more of our own food... More

Stayed here for a work conference. The resort itself is neat and clean with good facilities. Food at the resort was generally good but we did get steaks one night that were very tough.

Hi Gary S Great to see your company/industry chose Fraser Island to conference on and we hope that you were able to take advantage of some of the team building and extra-curricular activities whilst you were with us.
