​​​Journeys August/September 2017 issue

Welcome to the August/September issue of Journeys magazine. In this issue we take a look at what our members identified as the worst roads in Tasmania, and what we'll be advocating for in the lead-up to the next State Election – log on to our Member Hub here to have your say.

We also hear from readers and the Department of State Growth following member feedback on merging lanes in Tasmania.

In Wanderlust, journalist Julian Burgess and his wife travel to Flinders Island to discover some new developments in the tourism industry.

I take the new Holden Astra sedan for a Sunday Drive in the Queensland/New South Wales hinterland; we review the new Hyundai Elantra, Subaru XV, Audi Q5 and Renault Megane wagon and sedan; we also review the new Jayco Adventurer caravan; and we take a look at the costs of running your vehicle. 

As our redevelopment at Freycinet Lodge kicks off, we take a look at the comprehensive work that was done to ensure the ecology of the area was protected; artist and member Wayne Edwards tells of his time in Vanuatu; and we have more amazing images taken by readers from around the state.

Get set for spring with some great hints and tips from our Royal Rewards partners, whether it be for your garden, fitness or fun.

And in Travel, Brett Walker from the Cruise Travel Centre takes us aboard the new Ovation of the Seas; plus all the latest news and offers from our travel partners around the world.

Happy reading!

Paula Sward
