Kingfisher Bay Resort
With 1000 beds and a choice of pools, restaurants and bars, this is possibly the largest eco-resort in Australia. Situated on World Heritage Fraser Island, you can choose to lounge around the pool and do nothing at all. But the chances are you will be so fascinated by the rare sand-island environment that you won’t be able to help yourself from getting up and having a closer look at the wonders of nature that surround you. The resort has excellent rangers who take guests for walks around the grounds, pointing out the flora and fauna; you can also hire a four-wheel drive or join a tour across the island. Whales come to the bay to frolic in the waves during the breeding season, though this is a place of year-round wonders.
