K’Gari, also more commonly known as Fraser Island is the world’s LARGEST sand island! It’s a location on the East Coast of Australia that simply can not be missed! As the island is HUGE with plenty to see we always suggest going over to the island for 3 days and 2 nights. On the trip you will visit Lake Mckenzie & Wabby (The Natural Tea Tree lake), Indian Head, Champagne Pools, Eli Creek and the tropical rainforest.
This BackPacker safari tag-along tour allows you to drive your own jeep. Don’t worry though you’ll have an Aussie tour guide who leads the way and they’ll be with you for the duration of the trip to show you all the HOT SPOTS! sdasdas
Keep an eye out for the islands local dingos! Oh and watch out for the Drop Bears ;)
The tour will start from the Pippies hostel in Rainbow Beach. Please note you must be at the hostel the day before the trip as they will provide you with a safety briefing prior to heading over to the island. You can leave your big bag in the hostel and store this there for the duration of the trip. You can then pack a small bag for the duration of the trip.
3, 2, 1… You’re then ready to visit the world’s largest sand island and explore it by 4WD!
Fraser Island is one of our favourite adventure experiences and you’ll love everything that this incredible island has to offer! There’s no such thing as roads on Fraser and you’ll be swapping the rainy highways of home for the 75-mile beach highway 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, goannas and whales (during the migration season).
This 4WD tag-along tour will show you the island’s best locations and you’ll be shown around by legendary experienced guides! You’ll see all of the island highlights including the crystal clear Lake McKenzie, Tea Tree Lake Wabby, float down the natural lazy river Eli Creek, visit Indian Head to take in the views or chill in the bubbling champagne pools and see the historic Maheno shipwreck.
Pippies is one of the best-rated 3-day 2 night Tag Along tours departing from Rainbow Beach….This trip is EPIC! This safari-style tour includes all food, accommodation (tents are pre-built and will be ready for your arrival), 4×4’s on the island, petrol, national park fees and of course an Aussie tour guide who shows you around.
This 3-day 2-night tour with Pippies is an awesome way to see and explore Fraser Island, we love this tour because you’ll have an awesome time cruising around in the 4WDs, these are self-drive so if you’re over 21 and have had your license for more than a year you can be the driver and experience driving along the beach, and what road trip is complete without epic tunes? Be the DJ and create the ultimate island soundtrack!
All your meals are provided on this tour and you’ll all chip in and help out with the cooking and cleaning – see it as ‘4wd team bonding’! You’ll be treated to epic hot meals at the end of the day and a picnic lunch each day in some unreal spots!

From our RatPackers
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!
Great service! Jenner was so much help and gave us lots of options to suit our journey. Very attentive and made it an easy process.
This was the best customer service I ever experienced! I highly recommend you if you are looking for a Van or Camper to leave your email address so somebody of their team can get in touch with you. They compare for you all camper hire company’s and you can choose with one suits you the best. I literally talk to this awesome lady from Holland (as I’m only available after 8pm MEL time, so the arrange for me a call with somebody from the EU team for free) and she got our dream van for the most incredible price few minutes after we talked! And not even one day later I got my booking confirmation from the camper company. Their service is free of charge as they earn commission of your booking but this doesn’t cost you a cent. I did my own research before but the deals they give me was way better than I could find by my own. I highly recommend to get in touch with this team and let them find your Van. They literally saved us our fuel cost for a 3 weeks travel from Cairns to Sydney. Yes- that’s almost $1000 they saved us! Go and get your van! You won’t regret it.
So far, so so good. I should have started with RatPack to begin with and saved all that time searching for a camper and feeling like I was getting nowhere. Jenna was incredibly helpful -doing all the hard yards and getting us the best deal. Very prompt service. Thanks for making it so easy !
Very friendly service with Tammy. Super attentive and keen to help us. Got us a discount and one of the last available options.
Ratpack was super helpful! They were extremely responsive and helped us get an amazing deal on two 3-person camper vans. Highly recommend giving them a shot!
Really straight forward helpful and friendly people!
Mike helped us with finding the best van for us for our 3 week trip and was very knowledgeable. With some quick phone calls he gave us the best quotes and walked us through the process in detail. Everything was made clear and we booked our trip in just an hour! I would highly recommend their service.
Great experience with the RatPack travel team! Really went out of their way to help us book our Van’s for two different trips! They have great rapport with the various Van companies, were able to help us book the last available Van for our time in WA and were able to get us some discounts as well. Zan and Mikey were both so easy going, made it feel like we were chatting with friends who genuinely cared about our travels haha, awesome guys! Definitely recommend the RatPack service, will save you time and money fellow travellers!
Mike was amazing - helped me find a van and gave me quotes, a full breakdown, etc super quickly no stress! Just what I needed. Can't wait to start my trip. Thanks dude!
Booked a 3 week trip with MIKEY! Customer service was on point. No Buls**t straight to the point. Saved us a further % on the original price of the campervan and sent me a map of the east coast with highlighted areas he highly recommended to stop at. looking forward to our trip! 🇮🇪 🇦🇺
Highly recommend this company! Mike was incredibly helpful; he gave us lots of useful info and managed to get an excellent deal on a camper for our trip. The whole process was quick and easy. Thank you! Alison and Amy x
Mikey was amazing at helping us plan our 3 week schedule for the east coast. He went over and above to make sure that we were able to fit everything in that we wanted to in the time we have. His knowledge has been a great asset for us making an itinerary. Can't recommend enough!
If you want to book a camper for your trip, you should only do so with Ratpack. The team is incredibly fast and provides great service. No annoying comparison of providers, since Ratpack takes over. They are looking for the best deal and can offer great discounts. they respond individually to your wishes and give you additional tips for the trip. Since there is also an EU team, you could make calls at individual times of the day - simply excellent all around - thanks for everything
Absolutely delighted with the service provided by RatPack Travel. In particular, the excellent guidance and support offered by Jules! We explained our plans and she found a suitable solution to meet our needs. Very grateful and suggest other travellers use this facility. Thank you 😊
