Top five reasons to take a family break on Fraser Island

Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner! That glorious time of year where work meetings make way for Christmas parties and school uniforms are traded in for swimmers and thongs. The boogie boards are dusted off and howls "got him" fill the air as beach cricket swings into full season.

With an award-winning restaurant, a wide selection of dining choices, three swimming pools, a brand new Day Spa and heaps of family-friendly activities, it's easy to see why Kingfisher Bay Resort was recently named in the Top 10 Resorts for Families by Holidays with Kids Magazine. 

2. Junior Eco Rangers can learn and explore

We’ve also got extra special Christmas movie nights on Christmas Eve and awesome activities lined up through the night on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year on Fraser Island.
