Kingfisher Bay Resort - Fraser Island Accommodation

Day Away Day Trips To Beautiful Fraser Island


You don’t need a four-wheel-drive to spend quality time on Fraser Island. With a Day Away AM, you can literally laze the day away on Fraser’s sheltered western side.

Our 'Day Away' package from Hervey Bay includes:

  • Ferry transfers.
  • Day use of the resort facilities including the swimming pools, self-guided walking trails and our tennis and volleyball courts.
  • Join a ranger-guided resort morning walk (check our What's On Guide for times and activities).
  • A delicious deckside lunch overlooking our inviting swimming pools.

We can arrange to pick you up and drop you from your accommodation house in Hervey Bay for just $10 per person.   

What to expect: Your 'Day Away' starts with your scenic cruise across the Great Sandy Strait (ferry departs at 0900) – and you can pick your return time at 2pm, 5pm or 8.30pm. On arrival you'll be met by a Kingfisher Bay Resort Ranger who will explain the lay of the land and provide you with information about your day's activities.

The calm waters of the Great Sandy Strait are safe for the family to swim and fish. Plus there are optional water sports, stand-up paddle boards, guided canoe paddles or try a session on the Segways on the beach, for an additional cost. For the bigger children there are tennis courts and volley ball courts- along with laser skirmish and archery sessions on school holidays and weekends. The resort's Sand Bar restaurant also has two large swimming pools to keep you nice and cool during your visit.

Day Away passes cost $69* for adults and $39* for children aged 4-14.
