Kingfisher Bay Resort is one of Australia’s best family resorts and an eco-adventure base. It is located on magical K’gari (Fraser Island) in Queensland and offers awe-inspiring outdoor experiences for active visitors eager to learn more about the world’s largest sand island.
A must-do during your stay in Kingfisher Bay Resort is the Ranger-guided canoe paddle that takes participants from the jetty to the pristine Dundonga Stream. Along the way, you’ll learn about the eight species of mangroves that make up the magnificent Mangrove Colony, while having the chance to spot wildlife ranging from seabirds and raptors to fish, rays, dolphins and even the shy dugong. . The paddle takes an hour, making it ideal for those with little explorers.
For a wider view and better understanding of the island, Sea Explorer’s west coast cruise, aboard the custom-built boat Osprey is obvious. On board this vessel, you will be joined by a ranger who, together with the skipper, will guide you through the large sand biosphere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Again, wildlife viewing will be paramount, with the chance to spot birds, turtles, dolphins and more. You will have the opportunity to explore some of the island’s famous beaches and indulge in a dip in some of the pristine waterways. At three hours, this marine adventure is perfect for visitors who want to get out and enjoy all that this amazing island has to offer.
