Here at RatPack, everything is go go go, centred on adventure and making the most over every single millisecond of your time in Australia. But sometimes, a moment of relaxation and slowing down a little is needed and if you look in the right places, Aussie can be exactly that…relaxing!

Most of your trip is going to be jam packed with epic adventures and experiences (check out our free planning calendar to get yourself organised), but sometimes you’ve got to break it up a little and chill-ax!!

Australia is a beautiful country, full of insane landscapes and wildlife – so don’t forget to look around every now and again and take it all in.

So here goes, RatPack’s top 3 Aussie locations where you can truly switch off

Diving on The Great Barrier Reef

There is something so magical about submerging yourself in to the world of life under the sea.

Everything around you becomes so quiet and peaceful – all you can hear is the fish nibbling on the coral below (it’s so cool!).

Snorkelling and scuba diving is also the perfect excuse to go phone free! You can fully switch off and take in everything around you.

Sailing the Whitsundays

The Powerplay catamaran is the definition of luxury travelling *flashpacking* at an awesome price and has an onboard heated jacuzzi, incredible food, an onboard photographer, private rooms and activities such as snorkelling & stand up paddleboarding.

With only 18 others of board, this is a totally chilled out option of seeing the Whitsunday Islands in all their glory.

Dolphin kayaking in Byron Bay

Spend half a day on the water getting up close and personal with Byron’s locals – dolphins.

Not only will you see dolphins but you’ll also see turtles and a whale or two during the migration season {July-Oct}.

We contacted Ratpack travel to book our campervan for both New zealand and western australia, Mikey was absolutely amazing! Not only did he find us great deals but he was also super patient and friendly. Thanks Mikey you're an absolute legend!

George of RatPack has been amazing! So so responsive and helpful in finding really good campers for great deals! We’ve booked camper vans for Australia and New Zealand through RatPack and the process couldn’t have been easier!

Fantastic experience. I was pretty overwhelmed with trying to sort things myself, and Anna just cleared the path for me. She was so patient and helpful, now we are all sorted and booked 24 hours later.

Amazing company that takes all the hassle out of booking a camper-van for your travels in Australia and NZ. Within 2 hours of speaking to Ben we’d found and booked the best option for us, for a cheaper price than we’d ever expected! If you’re looking to book a camper-van for NZ or Australia, RatPack should be the first people you speak to!

My Friend and I have just booked our van for our New Zealand trip in September. Ryan was amazing and could have not been more helpful. Ryan has made the process straight forward and extremely stress free. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t be taking a dream trip. Thankyou again

Ryan provided a speedy service and quotes and was at the other end of the phone to answer any questions I had. Would recommend.

I had an outstanding experience with RatPack Travel and George! The service was excellent and incredibly efficient, making my trip planning a breeze. George went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend RatPack Travel to anyone.

Great service and good price. Would have had to pay more if not for RatPack's great connections and swift operations. Gregg was super helpful and came back with good news on further discounts when booking in our campervan for our NZ trip! :)

George was super helpful and informative! Very excited for our west coast adventure

Ratpack travel ? Such a fabulous experience to book our campervan for Tassie trip later this year with these guys . Loved the WhatsApp communication with Mikey and George . They searched for best price for us and advised on vans that would suit our requirements. So far so very good and will post another review at the end of the year after we have collected , driven and returned our wheels 🙌🙃.

Ryan was very helpful, getting us the best and cheapest camper for our trip from Cairns-Brisbane!
