KINGFISHER BAY RESORT AND VILLAGE
The multi-Award winning Kingfisher Bay Resort is a unique holiday destination nestled among World Heritage National Parks and tree-covered dunes, overlooking the waters of the Great Sandy Strait, on Fraser Island.
Designed to work in harmony with the landscape without impacting the natural environment, the Hotel features 152 rooms arranged into two arc-shaped wings, accessed by suspended corridors in between rainforest gardens. Along the beachfront, holiday goers enjoy recreational pools, a bar, shopping village, and tennis courts (with a spa, art gallery and interpretive centre soon to come), while long-term residents relax in private villas and homes nestled into the dunes surrounding the hotel.
The buildings, built with sustainability in mind, are no higher than two storeys and have been constructed of lightweight hardwood featuring curved corrugated steel roofing to mirror the rolling sand dunes. The pools, also inspired by the landscape, have been designed to represent the natural suspended lakes found on the island. In keeping with the Resort's sustainability premise, the Main Hotel also features thermo-symphonic natural air conditioning to complement the coastal, tropical environment, and there is a nursery located at the rear near the staff accommodation and maintenance facilities.
