Kingfisher Bay Resort (4*) is situated on the western side of Fraser Island, directly opposite Hervey Bay close to Fraser Island's major attractions. It’s set in a natural amphitheatre, surrounded by bush and wildlife. Its rooms are overlooking calm lakes and bush land. Kingfisher Bay Resort is an ideal base to discover the magnificent rain forest, beautiful fresh water lakes or the spectacular Seventy-Five Mile Beach.
Enjoy staying in a location that is set amidst a magnificent rainforest, beautiful fresh water lakes, beach and other natural wonders. World Heritage-listed Fraser Island is a rare and beautiful holiday destination, at the start of the Great Barrier Reef, offering a refreshing change from the bustle of mainland Australia and the resort islands of Queensland’s north. The island’s untamed wilderness and rugged, natural charm entices from the first, providing 4WD adventure and excitement, but also a relaxing atmosphere from your base at beautiful, eco-friendly Kingfisher Bay Resort. Slip into island living and explore the hundreds of tracks which criss-cross the world's largest sand island. Immerse yourself in the ancient rainforests, which flourish in dune valleys, colored sand cliffs on Seventy-Five Mile Beach or the mirrored lakes, ringed with gold, which tempt even the most reluctant swimmers.
Wake up to an orchestra of frogs and birdsong, and bush views that will make you wish you had just a few more days to stay. Nestled into the island's landscape, these Queenslander-style Resort Hotel rooms sit lightly on the land – allowing island wildlife to go about their daily business uninterrupted. Enjoy the best of the bush from the private native-timber deck, brew a coffee in-room and indulge in the moment, or soak up the smells and sounds of the land as you wander the timber walkways. And when the day is done, stretch out in air-conditioned comfort on the Queen or King-single beds and reflect on a day well-spent.

When the day’s exploring is done, it’s time to take the taste-buds on a voyage of their own in Kingfisher Bay Resort’s signature Seabelle Restaurant. The Chef de Cuisine has drawn inspiration from Fraser Island’s indigenous Butchulla tribe - crafting his menus to blend seasonal, local produce, fresh seafood, Australian bush tucker and island living. This is a place where herbs and garnishes are home-grown at the resort’s nursery, and delivered fresh by the gardeners to the kitchen door.
On Fraser Island, early risers can sleep in, walk with the birds or wake with a morning coffee in Maheno. A selection of hearty and healthy breakfast options provide the energy needed for the day’s exploring. As lunchtime rolls round, the sun-dappled waters of the resort pool and surrounding wallum scrub set the scene for a leisurely afternoon on the deck of the Maheno Restaurant with the family. The restaurant’s casual atmosphere also allows one to grab an island cocktail from the Lounge or Pool Bars and watch the live entertainment, before dinning deck-side or inside. Guests can relax with a coldie or a glass of red over dinner and take time, between visits to the buffet, to soak up the sounds of Fraser Island.
Combine the Sand Bar’s Bistro casual dining experience with its stunning bush location and you’ve got a recipe for success. The Sand Bar’s spacious decks allow glimpses of the Great Sandy Strait and poolside dining offers a taste of the Aussie lifestyle. The Sand Bar's made-to-order pizza and bistro menu hit the spot after a morning in the great outdoors… and best of all it's only a hop, skip and jump to two of the resort’s inviting pools and a short stroll to the beach. Picnic in the trees and soak up the birdsong, down a cool drink in the shady deck or keep the kids amused in the Sand Bar’s gaming arcade. The Sand Bar is perfect for a quick meal after a day's fun on the water.
Kingfisher Bay Resort's late night Dingo Bar is set in natural bush surrounds, just a short shuttle ride from the main Center Complex. Mix with an eclectic group of travelers from all over the world; enjoy a game of pool with new friends; let the resident DJ entertain you; or get into the swing of things with one of the many theme nights with bar games. The Dingo Bar offers a party atmosphere in World Heritage surrounds and is popular with many backpacker tour groups.
Escape the Queensland sun and enjoy beach breezes and a cool ice cream treat under the Jetty Hut roof. The Jetty is the resort’s main marine hub and the one-stop shop to hire marine gear, book a Sail Fraser Island cruise or indulge in a chat with friendly staff. Pre-order order a bucket of prawns, bucket of beers and prawns or a yummy antipasto platter or the team at the Jetty Hut would be only happy to whip up a cheese platter for you.
What better way to immerse yourself in the island than by taking some time to smell the wild flowers. Kingfisher Bay has a number of self-guided walks in and around the resort. Revitalize your mind, your body and your romance as you soak up some Queensland sun and look forward to having a happier, healthier body and mind all year round. Bubble away in a spa or one of the four swimming pools or go wild with a pamper session in the Natural Therapies Salon. In keeping with the environmental philosophy, the Spa at Kingfisher Bay Resort is using Waterlily products, which are derived from renewable and sustainable sources and are produced locally to limit their transport carbon footprint. Other resort facilities include a tennis court, a gift shop, a general store, water sport services, child minding and guest laundry (coin operated machines).
