Kingfisher Bay Resort was voted the Best Beach Resort in Australia by 'Discovery's Travel Channel' and has won six Australian Tourism and nine Queensland Tourism Awards. The stunning property, complete with mirror lakes and waterholes, blends seamlessly with the island's sensitive ecological systems.

We pride ourselves on setting benchmarks in environmental tourism and as the winner of the inaugural Steve Irwin award for ecotourism, live and breathe this philosophy in the resort, from our award-winning architecture to our landscaping.

All of our accommodation has been designed to minimise any effects on the natural environment, conserve energy and minimise waste. An onsite worm farm turns waste into compost for the resort's gardens and recycling is a must.

Native bird and wildlife are easily spotted from the walkways, private hotel verandas or outdoor pools. Our interpretive Rangers are locals who are passionate about Fraser and are happy to share their knowledge at the drop of a hat, as part of the resort's action-packed activity schedule, or showcase the beauty spots on a guided-tour.

Whether romantic indulgence, a business retreat, family-fun holiday or wilderness adventure is on the cards, a visit to Kingfisher Bay Resort can also be a lifestyle-changing experience.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   A piece of paradise! Amazing food, wonderful service and lovely facilities. Our villa was very dated but the package deal we got made up for it. Kids had a fantastic time in the Eco Ranger activities. Beautiful pools. Love all the historical and environmental information plaques everywhere. Thank you for having us!

Review:   First I’ll say that the rangers and guides were lovely and helpful, they’re doing a great job. It’s the actual resort that was deeply disappointing. The rooms are dated, and that alone would be okay, but the amount of noise and disruption is unacceptable. There is some sort of employee facility where they do all their cleaning and such right across from the set of villas where we stayed (room 146 in case you’re looking to book), and we heard the garbage trucks, vacuum cleaners always going, garbage being dumped. And they kept the lights on 24/7 which meant that the Japanese doors which acted as curtains did not block the light and it was never fully dark in the room. The rooms are not soundproof, you’ll hear the people above and below you, including crying babies and couples having sex. And the cleaners thought it would be a good idea to vacuum the room next to us at 7am. The bed was really hard, with a single flat pillow, a flat sheet and an old fleece blanket—I had to use the very old ratty blanket from the closet to keep warm. Breakfast was good but 2 of the 3 restaurants are stupid expensive. The grounds are nice, the pools looked clean (I didn’t get in, you know the kids pee in it), but the way it is run really ruins an otherwise untouched and magical island. If you want to experience Fraser Island, do it on your own in a 4WD and a tent at the various camping sites. The redeeming parts are all outside the resort; the trails, the views, the beach, lake Mackenzie etc. The Beauty Spots Tour was really great! The plane ride was worth it—and the pilots were all handsome...bonus. And the archery was good fun. Lastly, my mum and I had massages, and while mine was fine, it was her worst one ever. We are polite folks who don’t enjoy whinging, so if she says it was terrible, it must have been. I met her poolside and thought she had jumped in the pool; her hair was wet...with oil. She was dripping oil from her hair and the massage itself she says was incompetent. She twice politely brought it up with reception, and both times was told they would investigate it. Whatever that means. She deserves to have that money refunded, she works hard for it and she was so disappointed. There is a pattern of complaint from a huge number of guests outlining the same problems and the resort doesn’t seem to have addressed them. As a business, that needs to change.

Review:   Lovely room, great location. The villas are definitely the way to go IMO, especially if you are going with friends or family. The three bedroom villa had plenty of space.
