Witness the majestic humpback whales, as they frolic off the coast of Fraser Island, before migrating south for the summer. You’ll be in awe, as they breach from the water, wave their pec fins and make a splash in spectacular style. Experience their playful and curious behaviour first-hand, with a ½ Day whale watching cruise, departing from Kingfisher Bay Resort.
Voyage out into the calm waters of Platypus Bay, and await the first sighting off in the distance. The crew will invite passengers to scour the oceans for any signs of movement, causing excitement and anticipation to build, as everyone is on the lookout for spouts of water emerging from the surface – the tell-tale giveaway from the whale’s blowhole.
Before long, these marvellous creatures will be surging from the water with a spectacular breach, undoubtedly causing everyone on board to erupt in cheers of delight.
As Hervey Bay is the whale watching capital of Australia, there are guaranteed humpback sightings as you journey out into the Great Sandy Strait. It could be some cheeky adolescent whales, showing off their inquisitive personalities as they approach the boat, or a protective mother, teaching her calf some important life skills. Either way, you’ll be captivated by these gentle giants, for an up-close wildlife experience like no other.
For the ultimate Fraser Island retreat, you can’t go past a stay at the renowned Kingfisher Bay Resort. Located on the western beach, it’s your gateway to World Heritage wilderness, with native surrounds right on your doorstep. The resort offers a variety of ranger-guided activities, such as bush walks, canoe paddles and personalised tours that the whole family will love.
Head out on a full day ‘Beauty Spots’ tour, and experience the spectacular Lake McKenzie, ancient subtropical rainforest, and the renowned 75 Mile Beach highway to name a few.
After a full day of exploring, watch as the sun illuminates the sky in a breathtaking glow, and admire the view from Kingfisher Bay Resort’s Sunset Bar. Continue your island indulgence with dinner at one of the resort restaurants, offering both pool-side and fine-dining experiences.
