Long ago, a spirit named K’gari transformed into a lush tropical island worthy of the gods. Now you can visit this paradise of Aboriginal legend: Fraser Island, off the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia. The earth’s largest sand island and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Fraser is also home to one of the world’s best ecotourism retreats: Kingfisher Bay Resort. Experience the resort’s dedication to the environment from your sea-view villa, designed to be energy-efficient and blend with the surrounding rainforest. Or tour the resort’s recycling plant and worm farm, which turns table scraps into herb-garden soil. For a deep immersion in the island’s nature and culture, join a ranger-led eco-tour. You might sample bush tucker, eaten by the indigenous Butchulla people; canoe the mangroves of Dundonga Creek; or wander Seventy-Five Mile Beach. With the help of Kingfisher Bay, beautiful K’gari lives on.
