Left the Island feeling relaxed having had some great experiences, particularly the whale watching. Although not needed by us the resort caters well for children in sunny weather. Breakfast could not be faulted, plenty of choice.

A great place to visit but check your invoice carefully. Over $750 of incorrect charges at checkout. Rooms and facilities and tours were great otherwise. Whale tour and beauty spot tour highly recommended.

Very good service, lovely food, well priced and still very natural. We were happy to see that the resort hasn't been over done, is reflective of a nautral bush setting. Highly recommend this resort for a family getaway or a couples retreat, you could really do as little or as much as you like. Beautiful Island we will be back.

Wedding was lovely, access to ceremony area for disabled was extremely difficult. Access for disabled and frail to other areas of resort could do with improving. Accommodation was very nice but support service was difficult to get e.g. Replacement gas for bbq.

A memorable and very enjoyable visit to Kingfisher Bay Resort. The natural setting made the escape second to none. The bush tucker walk and night animal walk were creative and exposed the natural beauty of the environment.

Scenery was beautiful, but walking tracks needed severe signage upgrade and brekky was very average . Change in uniform to brighten up resort might be good. Barge staff need to give safety breif regarding life jacketsetc.

A beautiful, restful, clean, well organised place to stay. Lots of pools, relaxation areas, different food options and clean comfortable and quiet rooms. Love the way it is designed to sit harmoniously in the landscape.

We just had 3 nights at kingfisher with my wife and our 3 children. We highly recommend the beauty spots tour in the big 4 wd truck. We all loved it. We also took the light plane ride over the island which you can get whilst on the bus tour. Cost was 80 per head which was very reasonable. Awesome... More
