​​​Journeys June/July 2017 issue

Welcome to the June/July 2017 issue of Journeys magazine. In this issue, we have a special feature to update you on what's happening with our Destinations properties and experiences. With a new vessel being built to cruise the Gordon River, a redevelopment of the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery, a refurbishment of our dining experiences at Cradle Mountain with Altitude Restaurant + Bar, and the planned development of accommodation at Freycinet Lodge, it's certainly going to be a busy year ahead.

We also take a look at the impact of the proposed phase-out of regular (91RON) unleaded petrol and encourage members to have their say in our Member Hub; the Department of State Growth announces changes to merging at the Hobart Airport roundabout; and we talk to a local GP about how family and friends can support older drivers.

Our editor Paula Sward travels north to explore the culinary delights of Launceston – and discovers more than she bargained for. Journalist Julian Burgess takes the new Honda Civic through its paces in the state's North-East; Darren Moody and Alice Agnew review the Mazda CX-9, Audi A5 – S5 Coupe and the new Hyundai i30; and we have a range of tips to help you get your vehicle ready for winter.

Also in this issue, former Journeys editor Chris Viney brings us his latest adventure – beekeeping; we have a range of beautiful images taken by readers throughout our island state; as well as two great prizes (thanks to Destinations, Batteries and Autoglass) in our Black Crown competition.

It's almost school holiday time again, and our Royal Rewards team has been busy compiling some great offers to get us through those winter weeks, as well as a fantastic holiday prize offer from AutoServe and the latest news from our partners.

And in Travel, the colourful life of American singer-songwriter Bobby Darin will be brought to life on-stage in Melbourne this summer; Cruise Travel Centre specialist Lonnie Bevis tells of her life-changing visit to Cambodia and Vietnam; plus all the latest news and offers from our travel partners across Australia and all over the globe.

Happy reading!

Paula Sward
