We stayed 9 nights and really enjoyed the resort and the island. The bushwalking is good, the beaches are beautiful and it was great to put our feet up an unwind. Can't understand why you'd only stay an afternoon or overnight in this beautiful spot.

WORST RESORT IN AUSTRALIA What an appalling overpriced Resort this is. My wife and 2 children stayed in one of the hotel Villas, looks as though it was fitted out in the 1980’s and little else has changed! We sampled all the restaurants and the...More

Don't bother staying here. Save your money and stay in Hervey Bay. This place is so over priced and the service so under par it's pathetic. For each good thing this resort has or offers there's a list as long as your arm of negatives....More

We are currently completing our 3-night stay in one of the villas. After a week and a half camping on the island we had planned a nice relaxing and rejuvenating if not a little indulgent few days to wind down. Unfortunately not what we got....More

Nestled in the bush overlooking the calm waters of the Great Sandy Strait, this award-winning ecotourism resort on World Heritage-listed Fraser Island is the perfect base to explore the world's largest sand More island. The resort incorporates the 152-room Mercure Kingfisher Bay Hotel, self-contained two and three bedroom villas and houses, and a 174-bed Wilderness Lodge for groups. Resort Rangers also guide a variety of four-wheel-drive coach tours or personalised tours of the island. Access to Fraser Island is by ferry only. Less

Response from George P | Reviewed this property |
the beach where the barge docks is nice and calm, great for the kids. that's about a 5-10 minute walk. Main surf beach (where swimming isn't recommended) is on the other side. You'll need a 4wd to access this beach.

I don’t know about “everything” but if you book on the tour it would probably cover most. We had our own transport so could please ourselves. There are walks as well and water activities. It depends what you want to do.
