River to Mountain Tour

River to Mountain Tour

During the River to Mountain Tour you will find yourself discovering the heritage listed chimney that belonged to one of Townsville’s first industries, including hearing the fascinating story behind it.  

Get up close and personal with James Cook University, as we drive around its Campus.  Learn about our early pioneers and explorers, and the history of the Ross River, before you enjoy a walk around our magnificent Riverway complex.

Next stop is Thornton’s Gap where you can indulge in the spectacular views from the mountain top.  Immerse yourself in the memorabilia at the Heritage Tea Rooms, a piece of our history, still standing to remind us of a time when the world and Townsville were a far different place.  

Discover how Townsville became Australia’s Largest Northern City.


Bookings essential.

"We went through North Queensland Tours to book a jet ski tour in Airlie beach, they made to so much easier! They have a massive range of adventures to do, it’s exactly what Townsville needs! I highly recommend them!!"
- Ash Blanco
"Alicia was very friendly and informative. We were given the correct information and our day trip to Magnetic Island was amazing. We booked a bus trip with Neil from Magnetic Island Best Bus Tours through Alicia and he was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the trip fun. We visited places you would not normally see.
I would highly recommend both Alicia and Neil."

"I was staying at the rambutan hostel which North Queensland tours is located in front of. We could had booked through Rambutan reception but alicia at NQ tours alot more helpful and friendly! She took the time to explore all the different tours and accommodation at airlie beach and booked for us. Nothing was too much hassle even helping us with things that was nothing to do with travel. She really went the extra mile and i would recommend to anyone!"
- Megan O'Donnell

I highly recommended"
- Tal Noy
"I booked a rainforest tour in cairns through Alicia. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience booking a tour. She took her time and we talked about what I was looking for and in the end found an amazing tour for a great price, the whole process was extremely simple thanks to her."
- Iain Cunningham
"Alicia went above and beyond to help us and not only with booking a tour, Amazing customer service, Thank you for all your help"
- Kylie Fry

- Haylea Fitzsimmons

- Mira He
"Thank you Alicia, for your great help to find the beautiful Tour for me!!"
- Anika Heinrich
"This was the best travel agency I have ever been to! Alicia was the most friendly and awesome person I've ever met. She was so dedicated that I (as a solo traveller) would have a good time. I was just going to get a zoo ticket and ended up with a full day at Magnetic Island with a koala tour and got to hold a koala, she even drove me to the ferry so I would make it. The best service I ever experienced. If u are going to book with an agency please choose Alicia! She wants the best for you, and not just making money or selling u stuff like other agencies often do (like Peter Pan for example)"
- Felicia Hällgren
"North Queensland tour is the best image you can have of a strong woman who run things with passion. I asked Alicia to plan my trip to Magnetic Island coz I was too busy working to look after that. She perfectly understood what I was looking for and for once, I could feel that this is an agency who fit with what you want and not a pre-made tour who doesn't match with your expectations. Doesn't matter if you are a traveler, a tourist or a local from Queensland, in each case, she will find something for you !! :)"
- Cléme Cln
"Thanks so much Alicia for organizing the Ravenswood trip for me and my husband. We had a great day."
- Sue Wilson
"Alicia boasts intricate knowledge of townsville, its surrounds, and activities, and it really does show! I'm particularly disorganised with planning trips, but when I had a roadtrip scheduled down the east coast, she made it so painless for me to arrange the 'Ocean Rafting' tour in Airlie that I was interested in, which went on to be the most amazing experience. I can recommend to anyone in the Townsville area to come and speak to Alicia, I don't expect that you'll find any other tour guides in Townsville as friendly and helpful as her. Definitely will be returning next time I'm in Townsville.
Thanks Alicia!"
