Sail The Whitsundays

Ever wanted to visit of of the worlds best beaches? Well here in the Whitsundays you can!

Whitehaven Beach is the hotspot of the Whitsundays and can be explored on a sailing trip from Airlie Beach. You’ll kick back on a sailing boat or catameran for a few days, relax, snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, watch incredible sunrises and sunsets, have a drink under the stars and be looked after by the crew.

Scuba Dive the Great Barrier Reef

Up there on most backpackers bucketlists! One of the great wonders of the world the Great Barrier Reef is a beaaaaauty and best explored by scuba diving!

Not scuba dived before? No problem, all of the tour boats offer introductory dives with a guide and we can get these at a great deal. Check out the corals, sharks, turtles and a massive array of fish.

Explore the worlds largest sand island by 4wd

Fraser Island is a beaaaaaauty just off the coast of Queensland, north of Brisbane. The world largest sand island is home to the dingo (keep away from these bad boys), freshwater lakes, tea tree lakes, massive sand dunes, shipwrecks and rainforest.

This spot is best explored by 4WD on a tagalong tour with DropBear Adventures or Nomads. Spend 3 days camping under the stars with a group of legends!

Meet the Quokkas on Rottnest Island​

Seen pictures of these little smiley dudes? Part of marsupial family, you’ll find these guys on Rottnest Island just off the coast of Perth.

Hire a bike to cruise the island and try and get a selfie with them, we reckon that they are probably one of the most photogenic creatures you’ll ever meet!

Skydive over the Great Barrier Reef with a beach landing

Mission Beach is the HOME of beach landings, a unique way to make your skydive that little bit more intense (as if it didn’t need making more intense).

Jump from 15,000ft and see the Rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef and land on the sand! A feeling like NO other, yewwwwwwww

She explained everything and answered all questions asked. She is very efficient and professional as well as upbeat and happy.

Amazing service by the team at Ratpack. They helped us to book our camper and tours for the east coast, making a really simply a straightforward process, saving me hours of research and deliberation. I trust them implicitly. Never sales-y, or pushy, always glad to answer queries. Took a real interest in us and our trip. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

Really great help sorting a camper car for us. Everything booked within 24 hours of making the enquiry. We had actual conversations over the phone too which really helped us relax and decide what to do. Would definitely recommend

I booked my campervan to travel in NZ via RatPack Travel, who managed to find me the perfect van at relatively short notice and with a discount! It was a real help to have someone do the searching and mediate with the company, once they had dates and information from me. Thanks for the prompt and friendly service!
