HEAD TO FRASER ISLAND FOR FAMILY FUN
My 6-year-old son recently informed me his favourite family holidays weren’t the trips that involved international flights to exotic locations: he only needed a beach, adventure, crabs, sticks and wildlife. Needless to say, Kingfisher Bay Resort is an absolute frontrunner on his list of mostloved destinations. Located on Queensland’s ruggedly beautiful World-heritage listed Fraser Island, this ecotourism destination offers a chilled, back-to-nature experience for the whole family.
As an increasing number of parents battle with their kids’ digital addiction, this is one place guaranteed to have the kids willing to swap screen time for immersive experiences such as the resort’s Junior Eco Rangers program, canoeing, whale watching and bush-tucker taste session.
After an adventurous day 4Wding on the sand dunes, swimming at Lake Mckenzie and exploring the island, a highlight is watching the magnificent sunsets at the rustic Sunset Bar on the jetty while the kids happily chase armies of soldier crabs on the sand.
The resort has a range of accommodation options so you can relax in style after a day of adventuring. Watching the kids’ exhausted but happy faces fall asleep is proof that the simpler things in life are the best.
