Amazing things to go and see. Do not miss going to Lake Mackenzie. So relaxing and amazing. Ship wreck and 4WDing is fantastic to do, but tracks are not for the wanna be 4WD cars. Kingfisher Bay resort - all staff extremely helpful. Accommodation a bit old and dated, beds are bloody hard. Sunset bar is amazing. Food in restaurants...

Beautiful island the tour is a must if you would like to see places. Downside is the cost. There is 1 operator at the island from Kingfisher Bay so be prepared to pay. Hotel is ok, I would rate it 3,5. Food was good but service in the restaurant is not great.

Start off by saying my wife and i are in our low 30's. We enjoy exploring/hiking national parks, but we dont really camp so we like nice places to stay/relax/eat afterwards. We booked this since it was on the island, had decent reviews, and figured go with it. It was a mistake and next time i'd probably just stay in...

Fantastic escape from the normal routine. Kingfisher Bay Resort is a hidden paradise. Love the Eco feel of this resort and can't wait to return hopefully soon! The staff are lovely and accommodation in the Villa was quiet and peaceful.

The result is desperately in need of some TLC. Has not changed or been upgraded since our last visit 18 years ago. Lots of out of order, poorly maintained room. Nails sticking out of the decking boards at the sand bar. Beds need replacing

Take advantage of the range of activities offered. Must do 4WD experience in the bus with Beauty Spots. Even a day at Lake Mackenzie. Plenty of activities to do or just relaxing by the pool is a treat. The main swimming pool is awesome and also the smaller pool behind which is hidden. Wonderful for young and old.
