My Queensland Tours

World Wonders, culture and so much more—expect the unexpected on a Queensland tour!

You’re standing on the beach with your feet in the sand. On one side of you there’s a rainforest, on the other is the startling blue sea. Beneath the surface is a reef so expansive that it can be seen from outer space and your surroundings are so beautiful and other-worldly, you’d easily think you’d travelled far overseas! In Australia we so often overlook our own back yard. The appeal of other countries is so pushed in the media that we don’t stop to look around. But Australia is incredible and Queensland is its gem. With 1,727,000sq. kilometres of land to explore, the list of places to go, see and do is seemingly endless!

Queenslanders are all about the outdoor lifestyle. Experiencing Queensland means diving beneath the surface of turquoise waters, climbing to the top of mountains, exploring scenic national parks and strolling along beautiful beaches. There are so many options that deciding what to do can be hard. That’s why My QLD Holiday are here to help you out! There’s no better way to explore Queensland’s great outdoors than on one of our exclusive guided tours! Discover the underwater playground of one of the seven natural wonders of the world (the Great Barrier Reef), trek through the luscious greenery in the World Heritage listed Wet Tropic rainforests, take a walk on the white sands of Whitehaven Beach and discover the impressive landscapes of Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge!

My QLD Holiday tours are the best of the best and will get you out doing and seeing more than you would with anyone else! Our tours operate across the state. Whether you’re staying at Port Douglas, Cairns, Palm Cove, Hamilton Island or in the great southeast, we can pack your Queensland holiday with exclusive and unique experiences! Most of our packages include these tours as a bonus value extra, but if you just can’t get enough, any of them can be added on to your My QLD Holiday package. All you have to do is ask! Talk to our Queensland Holiday Experts to find out how or read on to learn more about our tours now!
