This really isn't a great advertisement to convince New South Welshman to holiday in qld! You know people don't have a sense of humour when it comes to this topic!

We had a great 4 days at Fraser Island staying at the Kingfisher Bay Resort. Although it was winter, you wwould never know. The days were warm with clear blue skies. We experienced so much in such a short time, from the 4 wheel drive trip around the coast with Martin as our tour guide, to Segways on the beach with Adam. Martin had such a wealth of knowledge and great driving skills. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the the facilities and accommodation was great. Recommended it to anyone.

We stayed two nights at the Kingfisher Resort. This is only a review about the hotel and not about Fraser Island. The island self, especially the famous Lake McKenzie is spectacular and need no extra words. We were at the Kingfisher Resort 20 years ago. A that time, the resort was beautiful and one of our favorites. Now, the hotel is the same and that's +/- the problem. Our room was only soft renovated and the bathroom is old. Some cockroaches disturbed our room experience. The resort self is neat but also a bit old-fashioned. Some restaurants are only open at the weekend, the food quality is ok. The bar at the pier was great, especially at sunset. All in all, our stay was ok, not more not less.

Had a nice stay but have been there before and it isn't as good as it used to be, I think its been taken over by a different chain. Room was nice enough but bathroom had paint peeling off the ceiling, don't think it had been redecorated since I was last there 5 years ago. Most annoying thing for me is that the pool now closes at 9pm, the late night swims and hot tubs used to be one of the nicest bits, especially after a few beers, now its gone all nanny state. Food was pretty good but nothing special given the price

Great place. Biggest mistake was not staying longer. It would be nice if one of the restaurants were air conditioned. Wifi should be included. We would go again.

Fraser Island is a stunning and fairly unique place to visit. Just a few miles off the Queensland coast, this sand-banked based Island is a beautiful sub-tropical paradise. Kingfisher resort is the main place to visit and stay at on the Western coast overlooking the strip of water back towards the mainland. Remembering that the island is a protected world heritage site the rooms are distributed on piers that spread from the central hotel which adds to the open-air feel. Most are suspended above the rich forest floor which means you feel close to nature without having any visitors. Indeed one of my favourite things was listening to the rich and loud birdsong early in the morning. Rooms are fine though basic enough. You don't visit for deep pile carpets and plumped up pillows after all. Hotel service was first class and food was good; though again like the rooms you are here to be nourished by the island experience not by 5 course haute cuisine. So lots to do when there including walking tours; Segway tour of neighbouring beach; proper 4 wheel-drive to the other side of the island and the 75 mile beach which doubles as a highway with 80km speed signs. The driving is true off road experience and our highlight. After shaking your way back make sure to get sun-down cocktail at the hotel jetty. Wonderful.

Reasonable price, clean, good food (great buffet for breakfast which is included in price). Great outside area with a huge swimming pool. The only resort on Fraser Island and I think it should stay this way as Fraser Island is on World heritage.

Really friendly staff. The weather was perfect, and mornings on the dock watching the sea life was amazing.

Two bedroom villa is disgraceful. Don't know if they are all loke this but it smells like old mouldy dead things, houses humongous huntsmans, is dark, very old fashioned and generally just feels unclean. Looks nothing like the photos! The resort overall does not look very well maintained and definitely needs some TLC.
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Thanks for your feedback Hayley, given the amount of very positive reviews our property receives, it is disappointing to hear your stay with us failed to impress and for that we sincerely apologise. We will take your feedback on board and ensure this is passed to our managers to follow up as soon as possible.
