Fraser Island is amazing! And there is much to recommend Kingfisher Bay Resort. It represents a good value holiday in a beautiful location with nicely presented facilities. The resort is very family friendly, with several pools and activities for kids and for the young at heart! The trip to the Island's beauty spots led by the wonderful Gary was unforgettable.... More

We stayed at the resort for four nights early April. First class location and facilities - great accommodation - good restaurant - lovely pools. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location for touring Fraser Island. Would stay again - will return - well worth a visit but could get crowded during peak or holiday season. Would highly recommend.

Glorious weather, an ocean view from a spa room, an informative bird walk, good massages, and seriously good meals from the Seabells restaurant. A really enjoyable Easter. Interesting to see that the Kingfisher Resort now has Segway tours on the western beach. Good seafood buffet at the Maheno restaurant also. Very special location. Did the obligatory walk to the WW2... More

We have just arrived home from 4 days at Kingfisher Bay Resort. What a wonderful time we had. We loved the natural surroundings and Eco- friendly concept. Every staff member was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. The tour across the island was a bit rough-but it was 4 wheel drive territory so what would you expect. The only fault... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in a garden view hotel room. Our stay was fantastic, so relaxing and peaceful! We had the buffet breakfast and buffet dinner at the Maheno and both were beautiful! The buffet dinner is a must for seafood lovers. Staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty to do, we enjoyed bush walking and hiring... More

Dear DAVEColchesterUk You're absolutely right, showers of rain were a welcome sight in early March after one of the driest summers in several decases and they served to harden the sand tracks up nicely. It's great to see that you and your family enjoyed your stay and took advantage of the eco activities we have on offer at the resort.... More

This is probably the best resort in the island. Despite some criticism in TA, at least the room where we stayed had been renovated well. We had a small balcony with a nice view to green yard and the pond. A really plus is the location close to the beach and arrival/departure ferry, really nice and informative (free!) guided walks...

We noted a second... More
