ithout taking anything away from the wealth and
diversity of natural assets in WA, most holidays are
made special by the people we meet on the way.
Fellow travellers from around the globe open us up
to a new world of views and experiences, but it is the locals who can
really make or break your holiday.
In the off-season, prices come down, crowds disperse and
with the environment less predictable now than ever, weather
conditions are often better than in the peak. Changing seasons
turn well-known favourites into almost unrecognisable adventure
playgrounds – landscapes turn green, rivers and waterfalls flow,
storms and lightning shows entertain.
But most importantly, ‘tourism destinations’ turn back into small
towns, and exhausted operators turn back into friendly locals. People
are less hurried, the pace slows, and everyone takes time to relate.
Stress levels drop, and locals find time to chat about their favourite
places to go, little-known walking trails, fishing and surfing spots, and
the many hidden jewels they refuse to share with just anyone.
While some services shut and opening times are often less
convenient, this is more than compensated by the local who is
happy to lend you some of his own gear, or give you a lift to his
favourite fishing spot because, well, he has the time and life is good.
Taking this on board, the team at Scoop continues to take a Lonely
Planet approach to content. We ask our many experienced contractors
to think of themselves more as researchers than writers, talking with
hundreds upon hundreds of locals from regional hotels, surfing schools,
tour operators, national parks and visitor centres, to find the very best
of each region.
What we offer in Scoop Traveller magazine is just a teaser – 1001
ideas to spark your interest, armed with which you’ll be able to pursue
local experts for more details. What we can’t fit into each edition we
put online (scoop.com.au), which now contains the largest online
guide (including more than 5000 full-page profiles) to travel and
events in Western Australia.
From all of us at Scoop, we wish you happy days and a truly local
experience, wherever your travels may take you.
My favourite time for travel anywhere
in the world is the off-season.
