Journeys February/March 2017 Arts and Heritage issue

Welcome to the February/March 2017 issue of Journeys magazine, focusing on the state's arts and heritage as well as the latest in national and international travel trends.

In this issue, Bicycle Network's Garry Bailey takes a look at cyclists' responsibilities on the road; Roger McNeice tells the story of Tasmania's horrific Black Tuesday bushfires; and we have a guide to RACT Symphony under the Stars.

In Wanderlust, Tasmanian writer Lilly Donkers takes a trip to Maria Island to explore the sights, sounds and flavours of a new gourmet discovery tour.

While on a Sunday Drive in the new Lexus RX350, editor Paula Sward also uncovers more about the state's historic hop kilns in the Derwent Valley; Tasmanian writer Mike Kerr investigates the rebirth of the state's disused roadside quarries; and car crash victim Monna Mirkazemi tells her moving story of recovery.

Artist Roger Imms has worked the stunning South-East Coast of Tasmania all of his life, gathering images to paint. He shares his work with us. Readers have also shared some beautiful images taken around the state; three local authors tell their stories; and we take a look at events around the state, including Ten Days on the Island.

The RACT Royal Rewards program continues to grow and in this issue we introduce some new partners, as well as giving readers the chance to win free fuel with United Petroleum.

And RACT staff member Will Oakley gives us some insight into travelling in Japan with a small child; plus all the latest in news and offers from our travel partners across Australia and all over the globe.

Happy reading!

Paula Sward
