This eco-adventure base, on Queensland’s pristine K’gari, is tailor-made for that adventurous family escape.

One of Australia’s best family resorts and eco adventure base, Kingfisher Bay Resort is located at magical K’gari (Fraser Island) in Queensland and has some awesome outdoor experiences on offer for active visitors keen to learn more about the world’s largest sand island.

A must-do during your stay at Kingfisher Bay Resort is the Ranger-guided canoe paddle that takes participants from the jetty to pristine Dundonga Creek. Along the way, you’ll learn about the eight species of mangrove that make up the beautiful mangrove colony, while also getting the chance to spot wildlife ranging from sea birds and raptors to fish, rays, dolphins and even the shy dugong. The paddle takes an hour, making it ideal for those with little explorers.

The Osprey is your ticket to adventure when you join the resort’s Sea Explorer West Coast Cruise.

For a larger view and understanding of the island the Sea Explorer West Coast Cruise, aboard the custom-built Osprey is a no-brainer. Aboard this vessel, you will be joined by a ranger who, along with the skipper, guides you around the UNESCO-awarded Great Sandy Biosphere. Again, wildlife spotting will be at a premium, with the opportunity to spot birdlife, turtles, dolphins and more. You’ll get the chance to explore some of the island’s famous beaches and indulge in a dip in some of the pristine waterways, too. At three hours, this marine adventure is perfect for visitors looking to get out and enjoy all this amazing island has to offer.
