The world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island, is a mile away from traffic jams, queues and stress. Escape with the family on a digital detox these holidays to Fraser Island.

Holidays with your loved ones should be memorable for the right reasons. At Fraser Island and Kingfisher Bay Resort a relaxing family holiday is just that – relaxing – away from the pressures of the everyday routine.

With a stack of nature-based resort activities to choose from, you can opt for the right blend of family togetherness. Lazy days can be spent exploring the national park by four-wheel-drive or on tour.  Similarly the calm waters of the Great Sandy Strait are safe for older children to canoe, swim and play.

There are ‘learn to fish’ clinics; Segway personal transporter adventure tours; plus folk catch plenty of fish off the jetty and enjoy having them cooked by the resort’s chefs.

For the bigger children there are tennis courts, four large salt-water swimming pools, and a spa to kick back.

Voted runner-up in the ‘Family Friendly’ resort category in the 2008 International Restaurant and Hotel Awards and ‘Best Family-Focused Tourism Operator’ for 2008 and 2009 by readers of The Australian newspaper, Fraser Island’s Kingfisher Bay Resort holiday program makes family vacations more than memorable – allowing the kids time to discover the environment whilst their parents relax and take time out for themselves.

Rangers also have a free daily program of bird watching, bat viewing, frog and mammal spotting, marine, mangrove and bush tucker walks.

As our grip on our purse strings grows tighter, family holiday plans tend to get put on pause. However at Fraser Island there are plenty of affordable, family-friendly options. Whether your idea of a memorable break is watching lizards sun themselves, beach combing, four-wheel-driving, bubbling the day away in a spa, water sports, bush walking, sampling native bush tucker or just soaking in the sun –  Fraser Island is a fresh choice for a vacation.
