Kingfisher Bay Resort offers modern accommodations, varied delicacies in its 3 restaurants and many bush walking tracks. The Resort was wonderful. The villa was just what we needed well equipped and spacious plus good beds. The free walks were really interesting and worth doing. The food in the Restaurants was good, only problem they closed early. booked the scenic trip which was very enjoyable and got to see some of the wonderful Island. We would stay again.
Facing the beachfront in Fraser Island, Fraser Island Beach Houses has an outdoor swimming pool and a garden. With barbecue facilities, the property also features a spa & wellness center. The house was great. Nice spot and the heated pool and spa were a treat. The hosts were lovely. We will be back.
Go for a Two Bedroom Villa rather than a Single Bedroom Spa or without Spa as that will give you more comfort and options to relax during your stay. It is good to have your own Car or a 4WD while stay at Fraser Island.
A great place to take your off road vehicles to explore some amazing natural attractions. Yes, you can see the main attractions in a couple of days, but it is so much better to take your time and explore a little more. Given travel along 75 mile beach is determined by tides it is a very good idea to organise accommodation on the island rather than try and catch the ferry across and try to do it all in a day. The distances are too great. We discovered that there are several sites of significance to the local Aboriginal people that were on the map (and shown on the Kingfisher info loop) but not flagged as sites of significance. It was only when we talked to a local Aboriginal person seeking directions that we discovered an area was a 'women's business' area (Central Station) and 'men's business area ( a local lake). We'd already been to Central station however we were offered an alternative lake to visit which was great information. He explained that National Parks and the local land council were beginning to work jointly to manage the island. so I look forward to seeing more information about the traditional owners and also having areas flagged as sacred sites so we can choose not to intrude or at least alert tourists to the significance of the area. Wayne told us Central Station was actually a birthing area and for women only, A birthing tree had recently been identified by archeologists.
I stayed at the Kingfisher resort and did the 4WD tour to see the Wreck, Lake Mckenzie and the Station for the timber industry that was there. That was fantastic and so informative as well as beautiful. I loved the morning tea break at the fresh water pool and the rich chocolate cookies. I mostly walked around as I had been there before and did the same walks I had done before with the daily guide. It is very picturesque and the walks alone the cliff top are amazing. I loved the small bar at the Jetty and the sunset beach where I took many photos and walked the sands, The included Breakfast was delicious with plenty of variety and I enjoyed the tasty pastries and breads as well as the great bacon and cut fruits. I did not have evening meals as I was alone and did not meet with anyone to share time with this trip. I was disappointed with my room which was on the far edge and corner with no view at all, but they did change me to the room next door which was just a glimpse of the water and sky. Last trip and stay was much better because of the room view and location. I would not come here again I think I have had enough of Fraser Island. I would stay at the other Resort next time, which looks fantastic, now it has been revamped and updated. I went there for lunch with the 4WD tour and loved the location right on the wild and open beach.
Amazing sand island. Soft sand with lots of natural spring water and filled with wildlife and natural lakes. Great for all travelers - if on a tight budget buy all supplies on the main land as frazer resorts are pricey!!
It was worth hiring a 4wd for 4 hours and driving to lake mcKenzie. But it was rushed and expensive for what it was. Noosa had some equally beautiful lakes. And the main beach had some freaky enormous blood sucking flies and dingos that ripped open someone's bag infront of our eyes. It was cute...but only because not one got hurt...this time. The food was overpriced. The drinks were ok. Lucky we brought a lot of our own. If you go to Fraser and stay at kingfisher - make sure you bring your own food and drink to offset the costs. Be ready for steep climbing, nay...trekking to your accommodation. And there will be no beach swimming - unless you don't mind sharing with a manta ray. The pool closes at 10pm so if you enjoy being told to get out by nosey staff - then this is the place for you.
Interesting place to visit. The lakes were amazing. The terrain was interesting which included tropical rain forrest vegetation. Swimming wasn't allowed in the ocean near the resort due to undertow. It was fun driving on the beaches. It hadn't rained in quite a while so the inland roads were very rough. Several vehicles got stuck. Wouldn't recommend driving them for the inexperienced drivers. There are several tour groups on the island. You need to book them before you get there.

Lovely place for a holiday with the family, just next to the beach in a secure compound, swimming pool and stunning views. I did consider it slightly over priced though compared to hotels and apartments in cities, but I guess the remote location does increase costs. I would stay again for sure, very friendly staff and willing to assist with anything, give you basic but very informative tips.

The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Our friendly hosts Karen & Tony gave us great tips on what to see and do while on Fraser Island, including help with the tides for our beach trip up north. A great holiday experience and we would highly recommend Apurla Island Retreat to anyone considering holidaying on Fraser Island. Tony & Michelle Nash

If you want to experience Fraser Island, this is a great place to be. You can sit on the beach, take a 4wd tour of the island, or hang under umbrellas by the pool if it’s rainy. Be prepared for a NATURE experience, though.
