K’gari (formerly Fraser Island) is an uptapped conference and incentive destination unlike any other.  From pristine rainforest surrounding freshwater lakes, vast sand dunes, beaches and sunsets that stretch for miles to dingoes and an array of other wildlife who call this slice of heaven home.

Located on the western side of K’gari, Kingfisher Bay Resort has capitalised on the island’s natural surrounds, creating a specialist conference venue which compliments the beauty of the Island. K’gari is easily accessible by air from Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast or Brisbane Airport.

Sustainable Travel

Kingfisher Bay Resort is an established operator with Advanced Ecotourism Certification and Green Travel Leader status from Ecotourism Australia in recognition of our commitment to using resources wisely and creating sustainable practices

Kingfisher Bay Resort has a continued focus on reducing waste. With limited services provided by the government on K’gari, the team at Kingfisher Bay Resort now internally manages all composting and recycling for the Kingfisher Bay Resort Group, saving 70 tonnes from landfill per quarter.

Reusable Toiletries
Single use plastic toiletries are not available at the resort. Each hotel room and villa is fitted with reusable toiletries to offer this guest amenities. Toiletries include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturiser, hand soap and shaving gel.

Dedicated Recycling Team
All waste is collected by our team and taken to our waste management centre for sorting. Recyclables are checked to ensure all items meet processing requirements. Once packaged, items are transported to the mainland for processing.

On-Site Composting
Shredded office papers and kitchen preparation scraps are turned into rich compost in the onsite worm farm and then used to grow herbs for the kitchen. This ultimate recycling process has its own interpretive signage you can discover on our Ranger-Guided Eco Walk.

Reducing Paper Consumption Via Apps and Functionality
Paperless booking systems and the increased adoption of screens and apps within the resort have provided an opportunity to reduce paper consumption. Our What’s On Guide was previously printed on a weekly basis and can now be found readily on hotel televisions and through the Kingfisher Bay Resort app.

We are aspiring to be single use plastic free at Kingfisher Bay Resort under our dedicated waste management initiative.

Current steps to reach this goal:

  • All our takeaway containers and takeaway coffee cups and lids are 100% biodegradable.
  • Use of bamboo takeaway cutlery and napkin/bags provided are 100% biodegradable.
  • Eliminated single use plastic bags from the Village Store and reusable cloth bags are available for purchase

Meeting Facilities

Catering for groups big or small, our main conference area has natural light, ambient views and is surrounded by large undercover decks. By setting up on our outdoor deck areas, which are adjacent to the meeting rooms, you can take full advantage of the natural surrounds.  The versatile ballroom space can seat up to 300 people theatre style, 180 for banquet dinner or sub-divided into three smaller sections for breakaway groups or smaller conferences.  Our large shaded verandas and four additional meeting rooms are also available to provide space for breakout areas, team projects or training.


A fully integrated resort with 152 hotel rooms and 110 two- and three-bedroom self-contained villas ensures that we can accommodate both large and small conferences.
