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.

Such an awesome experience booking our motor home for our upcoming Xmas holiday to Tasmania. Ben was super helpful, friendly and also managed to secure us a fantastic price. Highly recommend the team at Ratpack for your next holiday adventure.

Gregg assistance in finding me & my sister a campervan for our holiday in New Zealand was amazing. He responded quickly to my requests and ensured that I know my options. Can't wait for our holiday! Thank you Gregg and the rest of the RatPack Travel family!

The best price, fast and professional service. I'm not going to look for campervan on my own anymore. It is so much easier with you guys, grazie!

These guys are amazing! Honestly, they had so much patience with me as I had to chop and change dates and places and they were absolutely fantastic to deal with. Thanks so much to Tammy and all the guys! Cheers.

10/10 would recommend for helping book your trip. Jules really took the stress out of organising our 25 day trip around the east coast of Australia. She really went above and beyond helping us secure the most amazing campervan which completely suited our needs and had all our ‘wishlist’ items included (and bonus was within budget 🤩). Plus she was kind enough to share a map of places to see to help with our itinerary planning. Thanks again 🙏🏻 can’t wait for our trip.

We had a great experience with Ben! Thank you!

James was extremely helpful in helping us organise our trip around New Zealand. Helped us to find the best price for renting a campervan. Extremely helpful! Would definitely recommend:)

We decided to hire a van quite late and thanks to Ryan we managed to secure one. Ryan was super helpful and patient, thank you so much.

James was very helpful and sorted us out quickly for what we wanted, given how soon we wanted to head off. Very efficient and patient.

Cannot thank George enough for all his help booking a motorhome for our trip to New Zealand in October. Got an amazing deal for us & sent us tips on where to visit & stay along the way.

Unreal customer service! Took all the stress away from organising a van myself, made the process so easy. Highly recommend!

Ryan was extremely helpful and attentive, in getting us as good a deal as possible. Having someone else doing the chasing up for all our needs to make our trip problem free saves so much stress. I will leave a review once we have taken our trip too.
