Not having been to K'gari / Fraser Island before we choose the resort with the Island 4wd tour and Whale watching.
the 2 tours were fantastic. Being driven to the more known spots that really showcase the diversity of the Island was great. The guide very knowledgeable, the spots very interesting The Lunch was great.
The area is renowned for its Whale playground and they were there in abundance.
The resort itself is good, blends into the surrounds but you are stuck with paying resort prices for All Meals and they venues do not cope with the numbers.
generally the staff were satisfactory. double check what you are told with a couple on the boat on the way back being told not to bother with the whale watching because they have gone and another telling us bookings were not required when they totally are for everything.
Kingfisher Bay Resort & Fraser/K'gari Island are on a whole other level of beauty & relaxation. We went on a whale watching tour & it was magical. The whales are in Platypus Bay so the water is lovely & calm. The whales were relaxed & super playful….. best whale experience I've ever had.
I love Fraser Island and over the years have camped independently on many occasions. While that offers thrills and challenges, always enjoyable , it was nice to enjoy also the comforts Kingfisher Bay Resort has to offer. It's interesting landscape and building design is arresting. Without a vehicle options can be rather limiting, and I would advise jumping aboard the island beauty spots 4WD tour arranged through the resort. Fabulous experience.
