KING FISHER BAY RESORT

If you’re after the best way to escape Sydney, try Kingfisher Bay Resort on picturesque Fraser Island near the Great Barrier Reef. If your idea of a holiday is relaxing in the sun and floating aimlessly through crystal clear water, this is the place for you. If adventure is more your thing, don’t worry, you can still go Bear Grylls-style and trek off to explore untamed tropical forests. Whatever you do, at the end of your day you can come back to your beautiful luxurious room or villa and put your feet up. (Amanda Lidis) Fraser Island,1800 072 555. www.kingfisherbay.com
