Kingfisher Bay Resort Fraser Island
Luxury in the bush
Stayed here after a very full day on a bus tour around the island. The rooms were clean & comfortable with a beautiful view of the bush and lake. We had drinks at the bar while we listened to some live music then had a seafood buffet in the main restaurant. It was very pleasant.
Unique Quality: The resort has been built so that it blends in beautifully with the bush surrounding it - you can't see much but bush when you arrive at the wharf. It is spread out amongst the trees and there little feeling of being at a resort at all. Even the pool area and the bar and restaurants blend in. The bar on the wharf is a great place to watch the sun set.
For those not fond of camping
KingFisher bay resort is a 4 star hotel on Fraser island allowing those of you who want a little luxury to enjoy the Island without needing to camp.
It has 150 hotel rooms and 110 2 and 3 bedroom self-contained villas as well as a beautiful outdoor area including 4 pools.
The thing I particularly like about this resort is that it is trying to tie in with its surroundings - particularly its architectural style, and the inclusion of lots of trees and plants found on the Island. It has a really bright and airy main foyer, with lovely wooden floors.
It has 3 restaurants and there are also 4 bars in the area, a convenience store where you can also get petrol.
The rooms have TV's, air conditioning and much much more.
Unique Quality: I think the highlights really are the resorts close proximity to the beaches, as well as walking tracks to other places on the island. Another nice thing is that it blends in with the environment and so it is really a calm and relaxing place to stay, while still allowing you easy access to all of the islands lovely locations, whether you wish to drive yourself, walk or join a tour.
Its restaurants also offer a wide range of Australia foods and wine, and the resort offers programs to keep the children buys if parents want some time alone.
Kingfisher Bay Resort, 'on the bay side' of the Island, closest to the mainland, is the newest resort on Frazer Island. The thing that will amaze you most about this resort, is how it was planned and designed during construction. The buildings are dotted throughout the forest, and seem to blend in with all the surroundings. Very little of the natural beauty has been disturbed, even though this is quite a large resort.
You see very little of the resort, until you are in it, and the outside seems to flow right through it.
There are several restuarants and bars, swimming pools, cafe's, and a well stocked general store.
Unique Quality: Spacious accommodation, many with balconies looking out to natural forests.. tour booking offices, nature walks, and other guided tours.
Directions: Catch the FastCat, Barge, or a plane to get across from Hervey Bay. The fastcat takes aproximately 35 to 50 minutes, depending on the tides
