Whale sightings are guaranteed!

Book your


From $499

The calm, sheltered waters of Platypus Bay, on Fraser Island's western coast, are a prime whale watching spot. Each year from August through to late October, thousands of humpbacks migrate north to frolic, nurture their young and learn some essential life skills. 

And if you holiday where the humpbacks do, our special Fraser + Whales package allows you to experience two wonders in one - the ocean's gentle giants and World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.

PLUS it's all right on nature's doorstep, from your relaxing base at Kingfisher Bay Resort.
