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!

Itinerary:

The Southern Lights tour offers three days in one, including an exhilarating ride to Whitehaven Beach, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks. Ocean Rafting offers the ultimate access to the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach, and special snorkel sites ensure a memorable underwater experience. The Southern Lights tour visits both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy approximately two hours relaxing on the world famous white silica sand and enjoy a guided bushwalk to spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout to view and capture photographs of the stunning swirling silica sands and aqua water. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island or one of our “secret” snorkel spots, enjoying the amazing hard and soft corals of the fringing reefs. The main difference between Ocean Rafting’s two tours is that the Southern Lights has more beach time and the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time.

Inclusions:

  • Snorkel equipment
  • A full day at the Whitsundays!
