Journeys April/May 2017 Touring issue

Welcome to the April/May 2017 issue of Journeys magazine, focusing on touring around the state as well as what's happening in your local area, interstate and overseas.

In this issue we launch our partnership with the free fuel price comparison app GasBuddy – and you can reap the benefits; we take a look at the evolution of Targa Tasmania from motorsport to touring and we talk to race organiser and RACT member Mark Perry about the event's future in the state.

Far from being a grey nomad, Journeys editor Paula Sward sets out on an Apollo motor home trip to Tasmania's North-West, taking her children back to where she spent her summers. You can read about her journey – and get some tips for your own adventure.

Tasmanian journalist Julian Burgess takes the new Renault Koleos for a spin to historic Clarendon and Woolmers estates in the state's North; we take a look at the winners of Australia's Best Cars for 2016; and we talk to two men who are making a differences in young people's lives while restoring old motorcycles at Antisocial Engineering.

Continuing our focus on Tasmania, artist Henrietta Manning shares the story of how her works are created (even some through the windscreen of her car!); we have a selection of magnificent images sent in by readers; and the latest in events for the autumn months ahead.

You can get set for Easter with some great offers from our Royal Rewards partners; plus, if you haven't had your battery checked recently, now is the right time before winter kicks in.

And in Travel, Linda Smith goes back to Fiji 10 years after her honeymoon to experience the island destination in luxury; plus all of the latest in news and offers from our travel partners across Australia and all over the globe.

Happy reading!

Paula Sward
