Relax, explore and reconnect on a weekend away at Kingfisher Bay Resort — the gateway to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
Located on the sunset side of Fraser Island, Kingfisher Bay Resort is not only an oasis of relaxation but a place where you can explore Mother Nature and reconnect with friends and family over delicious food and wine.
There’s so much to do and see on Fraser Island! If you’re a bit of an explorer and up for some adventure, you might want to check out these tours and activities on offer at the resort.
Beauty Spots Tour
On this tour you’ll go off-roading in a 4WD, visiting natural attractions like Lake McKenzie, Wanggoolba Creek, the Maheno shipwreck and the coloured sands of The Pinnacles.
You’ll also get to see Seventy-Five Mile Beach’s famous highway and the mighty Stonetool Sand Blow, as well as cool off in the local watering holes (it’s best time of year for that!)
Ranger-Guide Canoe Paddle
Explore Fraser Island’s beautiful waterways and set out on a guided one and a half hour canoe paddle with an experienced ranger.
Paddle from McKenzie jetty to the stunning Dundonga Creek, while learning about the ecology of the island along the way and looking out for the local wildlife.
Segway PT Adventures
This one’s more for the kids – or big kids. In these ranger-guided tours you’ll get to manoeuvre a two-wheeled off-road adventure machine along the inter-tidal zones and across the varied terrains of Fraser’s western side – with some cool Ranger interp along the way. The segways reach up to 10km an hour and the sessions are 60 minutes long.
After all that exploring and adventure you’ll probably want a bit of R&R, and let me tell you there’s plenty of ways to do that!
The resort’s property is stunning, complete with mirror lakes and dunes and is surrounded by nature, so it’s not only beautiful it’s really peaceful too.
If your idea of relaxing involves a massage (who’s doesn’t?), beauty therapy or a spa package then a trip to the resorts Natural Therapies salon is in order.
The salon does a range of massages including stress relief massages, hot stone massages and pregnancy massages.
They also do a range of packages including the Lake Birrabeen Bliss with a refreshing facial, scalp massage and a choice of a manicure or pedicure and the Great Sandy Getaway featuring a full body exfoliation, warm oil massage, facial, scalp massage, a mini manicure and mini pedicure. Sounds like heaven!
But if that’s not your thing, why not laze around soaking up the sun by one of the resort’s four swimming pools? Or maybe you’d like to bubble your troubles away in the heated spa? Yes, please!
Now it’s time to reconnect! How does catching up with your friends and family over a nice dinner sound?
Whether you’re one for fine dining, a quick snack or you like the cafe scene, there are heaps of dining options on offer.
Take your tastebuds on a voyage at the resort’s award-winning Seabelle Restaurant, featuring a menu of local produce, fresh seafood, Australian bush tucker and Island- inspired foods.
The view from the restaurant’s not bad either, with a huge Queenslander-style verandah overlooking the colourful bush, the sand and the blue of the Great Sandy Strait.
Overlooking the resort’s pool, Maheno is a great place to wake up with a morning coffee and a hearty breakfast.
If you’re not a morning person though, the restaurant also does a lovely lunch and dinner on their outdoor deck. So you can sit back and relax with a wine in hand while you watch the sunset!
If you’re after a treat, why not enjoy the beach breeze and a cool ice cream on the boardwalk at the Jetty Hut? Situated right on the beach, the Jetty Hut is a great place to watch the sunset, feed the fish and watch the dingoes lope along the sand.
