The Best Luxury Accommodation On K'gari (Fraser Island)

K'gari (Fraser Island) has a few top-rated resorts that allow visitors to upgrade their island experience with a touch of appealing luxury. However, it is important to remember that K'gari is an ancient sand island with a vast history, thriving wildlife, and unique tranquility. The forests, lakes, and sand dunes have remained largely untouched for centuries. Because of that, the island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and overall development on the island is limited. 

There are very few resources outside of these luxury resorts! You will have excellent service and amenities at the resorts, but the level of luxury you experience on K'gari (Fraser Island) probably won't be as lavish as what you would experience on the Australian mainland. But that's all part of the experience! Enjoy this time to disconnect from modern stress and reconnect with natural beauty. Your resort stay will be an absolute treat, but it's the magic of nature that truly makes visitors fall in love with K'gari.

Kingfisher Bay Resort

Undoubtedly the best resort on K'gari (Fraser Island) is Kingfisher Bay Resort. Located on the island's west coast, Kingfisher Bay Resort is located right next to its own ferry terminal. So you can cruise over to the island's shores and walk right up to your room! You can also organise 4WD hire and pick up your vehicle right on the island at Kingfisher Bay Resort, making it a convenient place to start any K'gari trip. 

Because Kingfisher Bay Resort is the largest resort on the island, it has the most amenities and attractions. You can choose to stay in a lovely hotel room, a self-contained villa, or a holiday house. The resort has numerous restaurants and bars with high-quality food, a spa with pampering treatments, and unique tours and activities. This is definitely the best luxury accommodation on K'gari (Fraser Island)!

K'gari Beach Resort

Another one of the most popular resorts on the island is K'gari Beach Resort, formerly known as Eurong Resort. While this resort is slightly smaller and less extravagant than Kingfisher, it's one of the most well-equipped places on the island in terms of services and amenities. The resort grounds have a restaurant, bar, bakery, general store, swimming pool, and fuel stations. 

At K'gari Beach Resort, you can book hotel rooms or self-contained apartments. The furnishings are pretty basic, but it's still considered a luxury option compared to the national park cabins and campgrounds on K'gari. Because the resort is conveniently located right on 75 Mile Beach, just a short drive from Lake Wabby, Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, and more, it's one of the most popular places to stay on guided resort tours
