Holiday With The Humpback Whales

Kingfisher Bay Resort Fraser Island

Experience the ultimate island family adventure this September School Holidays... staying in paradise where the whales come to play, overlooking the calm beautiful waters of the Great Sandy Strait.

Each year some 20,000 humpback whales make the pilgrimage from Antarctica along the Australian coast, and stop on their return journey right off the coast of Fraser Island, where Kingfisher Bay Resort is nestled amongst the rainforest.

In the sheltered waters of the Great Sandy Strait, the mother whales feed their calves and teach them important skills they will need in the cooler water. The young juvenile male whales use the time to explore and play, and are known to be curious "people watchers" - which makes for great fun when you head out on the boats for a close encounter with these gentle giants.

GET UP CLOSE -  The waters off Fraser Island are one of only two places in the world where visitors have the chance to see these majestic creatures socialising so close to the boats in this natural whale sanctuary.

Measuring up to 16 metres in length with an average weight of 30,000 kilograms, watching one of these oceanic giants launch its body out of the water in a playful breach is one of the most awe-inspiring experiences to be had anywhere in the world.

Half-day whale watching cruises depart from Kingfisher Bay Resort daily, with soul-stirring sightings and close experiences guaranteed.

STAY WHERE THE WHALES PLAY - Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island is the perfect place to holiday in the spring months and see the whales while also enjoying the best of island life - in-house guests can relax and have it all organised for them.
