Turned up here at the last minute by boat. Safe anchorage and then spent a few hours at the Day Trippers area where we swam in the 2 lagoon shaped pools and had some lunch. Good prices and friendly staff.

A long weekend at Frazer Island is an experience that all should try once in life. Driving beaches, walking in rain forest, sipping a cool drink at the Jetty Hut while the sun sets over the Great Sandy Straights the start of a enjoyable evening. All restaurants have good service and the international staff friendly. Go

We just got back from a wedding on the Island and would like to say we were and are now once again going to be regular visitors to the kingfisher! The staff were switched on and seemed to be very caring towards us through out our whole stay. It was a pleasure to finally see a good bar tender in... More

I stayed at Kingfisher Bay Resort while attending a wedding. The air-conditioning in the room was brilliant and the bed was comfortable.The room itself was not as clean as I would expect (hair on the bedside table and on the shower wall). The toilet was not working as I would expect however maintenance arrived quickly and explained the issue to... More

My partner and I stayed at Kingfisher Resort earlier this year to celebrate the New Year and my birthday. I had always wanted to visit Fraser Island and was in awe of the resorts surroundings. The resort includes several private walking tracks that explore the surrounding beach, creeks and forestry. I would recommend exploring as many of these as possible... More

Nice staff, great to swim in the pool (you can swim until 10pm), to enjoy a spa in the bathroom , a spacious bedroom ,comfortable bed ,... More

We only were able to stay for one evening and so did not really get a chance to explore the Island. Enjoyed our cocktails and dinner which were reasonably priced. Our room was comfortable but the bathroom needs to be cleaned up - mouldy tiles and shower curtain.

Hi June V Thanks for taking the time to post after your overnight stay and for letting us know about your bathroom. You don't mention if you told our Reception team about this whilst with us, so we could've room moved you. It's also a shame you didn't get the chance to head out and explore our World Heritage-listed backyard... More

The whole experience was greater than what we had originally anticipated - the accommodation and the island it self... Although it was raining and little cold, the accommodation was great. The room was clean and comfortable with continental breakfast included. A nice pool area for a quick dip and a lounge in the sun and its close to various walking... More
