Kingfisher Bay Resort - Fraser Island Accommodation

Community Matters

We're 100% Committed To Responsible Tourism On World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.

From beginning to being, Kingfisher Bay Resort was designed to give people an enjoyable nature based tourism experience on World Heritage listed Fraser Island. In conducting our business, we strive to minimise our environmental impacts, spread benefits through our local economies and support community wellbeing.


Our TeamOur Team

The Kingfisher Bay Resort Group is one of the largest employers in the Fraser Coast region – operating two resort properties, a touring and a marine business on World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.  Collectively we employ more than 300 people.

Kingfisher Bay Resort relies on a strong 'community spirit' to function both socially and at work. Each role has the opportunity to go beyond its basic job description; many of us are firemen and first aiders. These 'extra' bits are part of the fun of island living!

We believe for our team to be great and deliver on our promises, that we must create a working environment that promotes enthusiasm, encourages mutual respect and is sensitive to, and supportive of, individual needs.

Our people can make a difference!
