Kingfisher Bay - A Hidden DestinationKingfisher Bay and World Heritage Listed Fraser Island delivers experiences that will leave you wishing you’d booked that extra few days.


A 45 minute ferry trip from River Heads, Queensland (approx. 3 hours’ drive north of  Brisbane) and you are whisked away to Kingfisher Bay Resort which is nestled tastefully amongst the landscape.  The key focus of ecotourism underpins this multi-award-winning resort and gives you the chance to spend time in a truly unique environment.

From the moment you leave the mainland, the laid back style of Kingfisher Bay Resort captures you, and the World Heritage Listed Fraser Island delivers experiences that will leave you wishing you’d booked that extra few days.  Whether you are an energetic adventurer ready to experience some amazing 4WD tracks or possibly a scenic flight over the island or simply looking for a place to totally relax surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, Kingfisher Bay Resort has the breakaway suited to your every rainbow need.


The resort staff offer a friendly smile; a laugh or helping hand at all times and are obviously comfortable with diversity amongst their guests.  Following the boardwalk to your room is even peaceful as you wind through the bushland to your privately positioned retreat where, once inside you don’t even know you have neighbours.  This is a place you can truly be yourself, there is not one uncomfortable moment right from the smooth check-in to your room, holding hands as you stroll through the grounds or generally being ‘out’ and about the complex.

While many destinations promote to all age groups it’s rare to find one that truly delivers in the way Kingfisher Bay Resort does.  The resort boasts a variety of ways to spend your days including; relaxing by the heated pools, indulging in the Natural Therapies salon, fishing, tennis, segway tours, canoeing, self and ranger guided walking and/or driving tours, ranger guided night tours, a kids club and the list goes on.


Natural gems are hidden everywhere across this sand island.  Take a swim in one of the crystal clear fresh water lakes, drive along the 75 mile beach and see the amazing sights of the coloured sands.  Visit the remnants of the Maheno Shipwreck and learn about the history and culture of Fraser Island’s indigenous Butchulla tribe.


A game of pool, a few drinks and watching the sun go down in the Jetty Hut is a perfect way to kick back after a day exploring the island.  The Maheno Restaurant and Bar is perfect for a casual meal overlooking the pool and the grounds.  If cocktails in the lounge or near the pool are more your style then this is the place to be.

For a meal with a difference you can’t go past the resort’s signature Seabelle Restaurant.  This award winning restaurant wraps up all the beauty of Fraser Island and serves it in the perfect setting overlooking bushland.  The menu incorporates local seafood and Australian bush tucker while the meals are flavoured with herbs and garnishes from the resort’s very own nursery.  Eating at this restaurant you are given an evening of sophisticated taste sensations. The ideal romantic dinner for two.
