Supporting Our Local EconomyThursday, 12 July 2012 21:09
The Kingfisher Bay Resort Group is one of the largest employers in the Hervey Bay area and we believe it is essential to support and be part of the local community. We contribute to the local economy by spending most of our annual purchasing spend on local (within a 200km radius) labour, goods and services.
Community SupportThursday, 12 July 2012 20:23
Kingfisher Bay and our staff have always helped the local communities. Significant contributions - generally involving the provision of holidays and tours for fundraising - are made annually in and around south-east Queensland for fundraising ventures, schools, universities and other organisations like the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter and the Hervey Bay Meals and Wheels volunteers (pictured).
