Great place, love the local tours. Was de-stressing. Wonderful lakes and beaches. But beware of sandfly bites if u hang around at the balcony of hotel as hotel is located around the nature marsh. Which is beautiful but comes with some insects. But don't worry, the room is well sealed. Food selection and price is a downside. Few selection, and...

Had a great visit to Fraser! Staff were lovely. Loved the idea of a $10 credit on your room if you don't have it serviced - this should happen more often. Food was lovely. Shame that it wasn't warm enough to enjoy the pool! Spa was great. Will return.

Location amazing, staff lovely, very relaxing atmosphere. Let down by their food quality & dated accomodation amenities. Overpriced for what you actually receive & wouldn't pay the prices asked to return before refurb.

The luxury holiday package was great as the breakfast inclusion and wine/cheese platter made it affordable. The resort and grounds look as good as when it was first built. I really appreciate the flora signs teaching me about the various natives. Bed are comfortable and rooms are clean and fresh.

We loved the walks and the beach. We were not impressed with our room. Every time we opened the sliding door the screen door would fall off. The bath tub needed a plug that would fit properly. The unit is very dark and dismall.

Spent 3 very enjoyable nights. We will return to see more of the island and more 4wd driving but not the Lake Wabby road which was rough and a real challenge. Dinner at the Seabelle was really enjoyable but slightly more expensive. Maps of the island and tracks could be improved although we had a Hema map

Had a fantastic time. Weather was a bit overcast but that worked out well for the tour we did because it wasn't too hot. Lake Mackenzie is stunning and definitely is a must see. The sandbar had beautiful fresh food and the staff everywhere were very considerate and friendly

This was our first visit to Fraser, Kingfisher Bay resort was in an excellent location for the bars, restaurants and activities. I would highly recommend hiring a 4WD and investigating the Island, Champagne Pools and Lake Mackenzie were our favorite locations. The majority of staff were polite and friendly with Duty Manager Danielle going above and beyond to ensure that...

Nice location, but expensive. Food choices need more consideration for healthly choices. Good for family. Staff are friendly, but needs more of them to be a reception desk, especially at checkin for questions to get familiar with evertyhing

A spacious and comfortable room. Toilet paper holder location made it difficult to use but this is a minor quibble. Overall accommodation very good. The pool was great. I thoroughly enjoyed the Beauty Spots and Whale Watch tours. The ranger walks were good also. Good variety of restaurant styles. Delicious buffet breakfast. Would love to visit again
