WELCOME TO OUR GUEST EDITORS
Hello Escape fans (hereby known as Escapees!), Steve Jacobs and Natalia Cooper here from Channel 9’s Today show. We’ve sent Escape’s regular Editor, Jana Frawley, packing this week and taken over the pages of your favourite travel section. Like you, we love the anticipation, experience and memories that holidays have to offer. We have the added fun of doing weather reports all over the country and having the chance to explore the biggest, best and most remote it has to offer.
You’ll notice there’s a theme running through the pages: we’re both drawn to beaches and blue, blue water, but are equally captivated by red earth of the Australian Outback. So, it seemed apt to borrow a few lines from Dorothea Mackellar’s My Country for the headline on our tale about our most-loved locations.
We’ve also shared the secrets to some of our favourite international destinations, plus some travel wisdom from our many days on the road.
We hope you enjoy reading this edition as much as we did putting it together. Bon voyage, Escapees.
