Kingfisher Bay Resort-Fraser Island-Queensland -Australia

FRASER ISLAND-the world's largest lushly vegetated sand island-lay moodily enshrouded in the early morning mist like some silent slumbering giant enveloped in a shadowy grey doona of cloud. The rising suns rays split through the low lying cloud and mizzleing rain creating angelic patterns of translucent light that splayed across the mirror calm of the Great Sandy Strait.
KINGFISHER BAY RESORT'S shiny blue vehicular barge nudged lightly upon the shores of Fraser Island's Kingfisher Bay Resort so gently as to not feel the bump. I expected a Normandy beaches style assault but we disembarked along the jetty in silence and were enveloped immediately by a heady fragrance of baronia and lemon scented tea tree.
WORLD HERITAGE protected Fraser Island appeared to be hiding from us, keeping her secrets until the last tantalising moment....
The resort - that pioneered eco friendly resorts in Australia-sits lightly apon the Earth and is essentially a huge pole house that squats atop a wetland. Staying there ensures you get very close to nature...and nature gets very close to you.
