One of our fave places to get on a roadie – the epic Fraser Island, the home of the dingo, beach driving, natural lakes and pure remote life vibes. Here you can:

  • Drive a 4wd along the beach
  • Swim in natural lakes (without worrying about sharks!)
  • Camp under the stars
  • Spot unreal wildlife

There’s no such thing as roads on Fraser and you’ll be swapping the rainy dual carriageways of home for the 75 mile beach highway and will be driving along the beach and tracks through the forest, it’s an experience like no other and this will certainly get your adrenaline going.

The island is super remote and very few people actually live here, there’s incredible wildlife to see, look out for the island’s resident dingos, snakes, spiders, goanas and whales (during the migration season).

We’ve been lucky enough to explore Fraser Island with the Dropbear Crew, read on to find more all about this epic experience!

Paradise is ready for ya!

To get to Fraser Island you’ll need to jump on one of the many tours that are on offer! The guys over at Dropbear are doing EPIC things, and we love ‘em, why do we love them?

Well, they are doing things a little bit different and you know at RatPack we are ALL about that. The Dropbear crew offer 2 different trips to explore Fraser Island with them by 4WD. You can expect legendary guides who will bring the bants but who also are locals and know the island off by heart, they’ll tell you epic island stories and you’ll learn a thing or two about the culture of the island and its origins.

The crew are also the ultimate eco warriors aka legends, and we even headed out on a massive beach clean this summer! So we can safely say they care about their island ALOT.

The Deets..

  • Duration: 3 day/ 2 night or 2 day 1 night
  • Location: Fraser Island, Queensland
  • Time: depart Noosa @ 6:30am/ Rainbow Beach @ 10am
  • Meet Location: Pickups from Noosa/Rainbow Beach
  • Vibe: Social, educational, adventure, 5***

Where will you visit?

The guys at Dropbear are locals and know ALL the best spots on the island to explore, including some of the less known, quieter spots…

You’ll hit up all the hot spots including:

  • Lake McKenzie
  • Maheno Shipwreck
  • Champagne Pools
  • Lake Wabby
  • Eli Creek
  • Indian Head

Camp under the stars...

Yep thats right!

You’ll be camping in the epic Dropbear campsite which is right by the beach. This is the ultimate camp set up and these guys have got it nailed when it comes to camping.

Not only is there an awesome common area, showers and loos but the tents are already set up and all your bedding is sorted.

Now imagine hanging out round a campfire looking at the amazing stars (there is so little light pollution here you’ll see stars like never before) and then watching the sunrise from the beach. Dream right?

OH and did we mention you can upgrade your tent to a more ‘glamping’ experience with a bed, more space and fairylights? Give us a shout if this sounds like a bit of you!

Whats included?

  • All food and snacks (but feel free to bring your own alcohol)
  • Your accommodation
  • Camping Equipment
  • Passionate Guide
  • All national park fees
  • 4 wheel drive jeeps – you can drive one if you are over 21 and have held your drivers license for more than a year

The ultimate option…

If you have planned your trip with the help of us or have done plenty of research you’ll have read that the perfect amount of time to spend on Fraser Island is 3 days and 2 nights

The Dropbear 3 day 2 night camping safari is unreal! You’ll spend an incredible 3 days and 2 nights camping right by the beach under the stars at night and cruising the island by day.

Once you’ve visited the island you’ll never want to leave and will want to keep exploring this natural paradise.

For those with shorter time…

If you are short on time then Dropbear also offer a 2 day 1 night tour! You’ll see most of the epic spots that the island has to offer and you’ll have an epic time cruising around this epic island by 4WD!

On the 2D1N tour you’ll be staying in camping accomodation right by the beach, the crew will cook up epic dinners for you and will provide entertainment around the campfire in the evening under the stars >> thats what we are talking about yewwwwwww.

That island life has got us for real, so if you fancy cruising the island but have a little less time available then this is for you.

What do we love about this experience?

Well first up, what’s NOT to love! These guys are legends and produce a unique experience like NO other…

  • You’ll get to see the island in the utlimate way – by 4wd jeep! No coaches here RatPackers
  • Your tour guide is an experienced and knowledgable local guide, ask any questions you have an learn about this paradise
  • These guys care about the island and are Eco friendly << we are all about that!
  • You’ll have a safe and fun experience exploring the island and see all of the highlights plus some local secrets
  • This will be a trip of a lifetime that will be nothing like you’ve ever experienced before!
  • The Dropbear crew look after you SO well from start to finish, we’re talking amazing food, banter and fun..

Ready for it?

We love Dropbear’s vibe because they are ALL about the good authentic times in a responsible way, these guys love their home and will make you fall in love with it too!

Not sure which trips best suited to you? We recommend:

  • 3 day 2 night tour if you want to experience the island at its finest and visit ALL the highlights. We always recommend the 3 day tour as 2 days never feels like enough!
  • 2 day 1 night tour if you are shorter on time for your trip and have a lower budget available for your Fraser Island adventure.

George from RatPack travel has been an absolute delight to deal with. My husband and I are going on our first adventure in a motorhome to Queenstown Nz in April. George made the booking process stress free, he also got us a very decent discount and he answered all the questions that I had. I'm beyond happy with the experience and would highly recommend this agency the next time you want to book a motorhome for your next adventure.

Super good costumer service, Joe helped me find a Van with a very short time for my trip, he was super attentive and assertive, showing me different options, so now we have a good Van with a good price.

Ratpack worked round the clock to sort us a motorhome at very short notice. Originally working with Chris to sort something and getting it over the line with Mikey, everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful for sorting it out and we look forward to our trip with comfort knowing that it's all sorted. Big shout-out to Mikey who got us a real deal!

Very friendly and went through everything in great detail, made everything super easy I will be using them again in the future!!

Insanely efficient. Seems like it’s too good to be true. But it’s genuinely that easy. Joe was so fast at replying and provided me with all the information I needed to choose the camper van for my road trip. He also got me a great discount (a lot more than planned) which was something I was not going to be able to get if I went directly to the camper van company. Over all a great experience- recommend to anyone looking for campervan in NZ.
