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!

A once in a lifetime experience over in Western Australia and one NOT to be missed. Whale Sharks are incredible mammals and only found in a few spots around the world, head on a swimming tour with one of the ethical companies in Exmouth.

Did you know only 1 in 8 million people have done this? The RatPack crew have done this and can safely say it was one of the TOP experiences in the world, not just in Aussie. Head on a West Coast tour from Perth to Exmouth with a guide to see it in all its beauty!

Visit the red centre – Uluru

The heart of Australia and a unique rock formation like no other! This huge red rock will leave you baffled as its right out in the outback of Aussie and is a deep red!

Head here on a tour with a guide where you’ll be sleeping under the stars in swags and seeing Uluru at sunset/sunrise. A true Aussie outback experience!

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

Roadtrip the Great Ocean Road

Get your crew together, get a campervan or car, get your playlist ready and hit the road RatPack Roadie style and explore the Great Ocean Road! This trip is insane and one of our favourites.

Head from Melbourne along the coast with your last spot being the 12 Apostles for sunset, you’ll visit some amazing beaches, great view points and stop off at Kenneth River to spot Koalas and parrots.

I'm very happy with the help of the experienced Ratpack team in planning my Australia travels, 5 stars for their personal approach at no extra costs. They reached out to me by phone to advise me on where to go (and where not to go, also useful when having limited travel time) and gave tips on the best trips for Fraser Island and Whitsundays. I could book through them without having to pay anything for their service. Any questions they answered quickly via WhatsApp.

Zan was amazing at walking me through all the van options available to hire in NZ. We were very last minute in organising our trip and Zan was so amazing and did all the hard work for us. He also reassured us with his inside knowledge of the van companies and knowing what vans were available for us to hire. I am so grateful for the hard work and extra effort the team went through to help us out in such short notice. Definitely will be using them again!

Tyla was so helpful getting our camper booked for New Zealand. Not only did she lock in a great deal for us she also gave us lots of advice and pointers from her own experience, which was really appreciated. Thank you so much Tyla! Would highly reccomend this service.

This is a great company that my dad stumbled across trying to help me book a camper for Aus travel. They helped me find and book a camper at a reduced price and talked through all the details. Easy and flexible communications and just lovely people. Jules helped me with everything, all the way from Europe- do recommend using them even for a further discount.
