Kingfisher Bay Resort Jetty Hut pier on Fraser Island

The Jetty Hut pier is the entry point to the Kingfisher Bay Resort. This marine hub is ideal for observing the welcoming swallows, or if you manage to get up early you can see a multitude of stingrays and other marine life passing gently under the pier.

This photograph of the pier was taken just after sunrise. The thick background is a mixture of morning fog and smoke coming from the south part of the Fraser Island, reminding us this is fire season in Australia and even tourists resorts are not immune from extreme weather.
