Fraser Island is situated on the coast of Queensland, about 300 kilometres north of Brisbane. Made almost entirely out of sand, it is home to unique rainforests, dozens of lakes and huge sand blows. As Fraser Island is a World Heritage National Park, it attracts many visitors from all over the world.   


The world renowned Kingfisher Bay Resort is located in a tranquil valley on the west coast. Hidden among tree-covered dunes on the edge of the Great Sandy Strait, the resort is a multi award winning eco resort with a variety of hotel rooms and luxurious villas. Kingfisher Bay is a popular conference venue, offering a great opportunity to combine business with a touch of luxury, a relaxed atmosphere and a top rating National Park experience.


When not attending the conference sessions, you will enjoy the many leisure facilities on offer at the resort. There are four swimming pools including a two-level swimming pool inspired by the postcard-beauty of Lake McKenzie. There are also tennis and volley ball facilities, water sports (including snorkelling), sailing and fishing trips. There is a special beachfront bistro and bar. For those wishing to see a bit more of the Island, we have organised a ranger led 4WD nature tour, featuring bird watching walks and rainforest treks. There is also a Natural Therapy and Beauty Clinic at the resort for those who feel in need of a little pampering.


A modern purpose built centre for the under fives with qualified child care staff. For ages 5-14 there is a Junior Ranger Program including morning, afternoon and evening activities.


Resort Hotel
152 rooms each featuring private deck, air conditioning, ceiling fans, bathroom, colour TV, telephone, tea and coffee making facilities and refrigerator. Each resort hotel room has one queen and one king single bed. Facilities are available for guests with disabilities.

Villas in the tree tops 
Nestled in the bush, there are a variety of fully self-contained two or three bedroom villas and some executive villas. The villas have a variety of bedding layouts but all have large private decks which are great for viewing the local wildlife. Villas sleep up to eight people and have separate lounge and dining areas, insect screens, bath/shower, colour cable TV, telephone, radio and fully-equipped kitchen with microwave. Villa floor plans vary, with some two-bedroom villas having lofts, so please let us know if you are bringing young children along with you. 


There are three restaurants offering a choice of a la carte dining, themed buffets, poolside lunches, a bistro and a Pizzeria. The bakery is open daily for freshly baked bread, pastries and coffee. There are three bars, including a cocktail bar, a nightclub and a café. There is also a beachfront brasserie. Although the conference program largely designates where meals will be taken, delegates can make their own arrangements for the afternoon and evening of Thursday, 2 November, and some delegates may consider extending their stay to make the most of the wonderful surroundings. We suggest that restaurants are booked in advance. Our conference administrators will be on hand to assist with bookings.
