Cover Story: The Big Travel Edition


In this edition we explore the future of holidays and adventure, from space journeys to sustainable tourism and virtual reality escapes. We also bring you travel stories by Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler, Triple J newsreader Nas Campanella and award-winning photographer Ami Vitale. And our Vendor Tour Guide column goes international, as we invite vendors from street papers in the US, UK, Japan and Slovenia to share a bit about their home cities.

Plus, we are giving you the chance to get away. Thanks to Cathay Pacific, you can win two return economy flights to Hong Kong (flights only). All you need to do is buy the mag from your local vendor, find the code word on page 17, and visit our website. You can find all the Ts&Cs there, too:

Also in this edition:

• Local punksters Amyl and the Sniffers reveal how they’ve gone from Aussie pub gigs to Gucci ads on their way to international acclaim.

• Author Tony Birch on the importance of amplifying the voices of Indigenous women and stories of the Stolen Generation in his new novel.

• South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s film Parasite won the top gong at the Cannes Film Festival. Even better, he’s in The Big Issue!

• And in Tastes Like Home, MasterChef alumna Justine Schofield shares her recipe for a stomach-pleasing pasta dish, perfect for nights in on the couch.
