On The Tracks – Supporting Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service © Kingfisher Bay Resort - Fraser Island

The resort undertakes road maintenance on major National Park thoroughfares (at our own expense) to reduce erosion and damage to Fraser Island's fragile environment.

We also care and protect Fraser Island sites visited by working with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to: minimise impact on sensitive areas by rotating walking tracks; monitor the Fraser Island dingo program; and support environmental initiatives such as promoting to guests/media the banning of water-soluble sunscreen by swimmers in Fraser's lakes.

  • We conduct and sponsor regular research by resort rangers and university groups to monitor the flora, fauna and waterways and use the TANGler fishing line disposal units on our jetty head;
  • We promote a catch-and-release fishing program with supervised fishing clinics, which demonstrate safe release methods;
  • We restrict the growth of non-indigenous and self-seeded plants to protect the island's gene pool and maintain the environmental integrity of the resort;
  • We work with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to control noxious pests like the mosquito fish, which have been found in the resort's lakes;
  • We maintain a nursery to provide for ongoing landscaping needs and bush tucker herbs for the resort kitchens.  This site also serves as an interpretive centre for resort guests;
  • We preserve natural settings by confining guests to walking tracks and boardwalks with interpretive signs; and
  • We manage fire risk on the island by supporting the Rural Fire Brigade and maintaining fire breaks around our properties.

We believe in: "Ecologically sustainable tourism that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation".
