loved the activities but the room was a bit tired and needs some maintenance. Mahenos restaurant needs updating and an occasional menu change. Ridiculous to have minimum character requirement for reviews!!!!!

I would definitely recommend everyone to visit Kingfisher Bay Resort. The staff were always friendly and happy to help. I loved being able to just jump in the car and travel on the many tracks around Fraser Island. Was great to check out all that Fraser Island has to offer.

We stayed at the Kingfisher Bay Resort for our time on Fraser Island, it is a good base with which to explore the Island and even though we were gung-ho about camping (we did one night of camping, pretty sure dingoes were trying to get into our tents) we decided to treat ourselves a bit and stay in a bit...

Kingfisher Bay Resort is the perfect base from which to explore Fraser Island. Loved the Beauty Spots tour with the variety of scenery and cheerful, knowledgeable guide. Lake Mackenzie is a must as is the beach, forest walk. Comfortable room at the resort and a great way for an immersion into nature.

The resort was a great place to relax and unwind and we really enjoyed the 4x4 tracks and nice drive along the beach. I have already recommended the resort to friends and family and are planning another trip in the coming months.

Spacious room set in very nice gardens. The resort is right next to the beach and has a fence around the outside to keep the dingoes away I presume. The whole facility is pretty much enclosed with mutiple bars and restaurants. The main hotel serves the usual generous aussie breakfast and the restaurant by the beach serves reasonably priced pub...
