This month’s guest blogger Symantha Perkins writes about her stay at Kingfisher Bay during a recent visit to Fraser Island. Sam is a ‘Super Mum’ to three gorgeous kids, is the Features Editor of ‘Holidays With Kids’ magazine and is married to ‘Super Fish’ Kieren Perkins.
Sam writes: We just had a fantastic getaway on Fraser Island, relaxing at Kingfisher Bay Resort. A huge thank you to all the Kingfisher team, especially Ranger Bec who taught the kids some valuable lessons about Aussie wildlife and eco-living, and gave Kieren daily updates on which tracks were safe for 4WDing.
Bush, sand, surf, beaches, rock cliffs, sand dunes, freshwater lakes, you names it Fraser Island has it! When we weren’t lazing by Kingfisher Bay Resort’s pool or soaking in the spa tub on the deck of our treetop villa, we spent our days 4WDing around the bush tracks and cruising along Fraser Island’s awesome beaches. It’s the ultimate 4×4 destination and family vacation spot.
Our highlights were floating down Eli Creek and in The Champagne Pools, swimming in Lake McKenzie and hiking to Lake Wabby from Hammerstone Sand blow. A game of family ‘eye spy’ has never been so much fun with so many interesting things to spot, including dingoes (look but never touch), dolphins, turtles, kingfishers; no whales this trip – but maybe next time.
We’re already planning our next Fraser Island adventure. Keep and eye out for my action packed story, complete with all our family snapshots in the Spring issue of Holidays With Kids magazine – http://www.holidayswithkids.com.au.
