Savvy travellers know the best places to stay, how and where to find great deals and have the inside running on the greatest places to explore. We’ve got them writing for The New Daily’s monthly ‘Away’ section, a guide for everyone who loves to travel, or to dream about travelling.
How do you make the best of flying economy? What are the most interesting new places to stay in Bali? Where are Queenslanders’ favourite beach spots? These questions and more are answered in the first edition, launched on October 7.
Away editor Janne Apelgren, a former editor of The Age Travel and its Good Food Guide, said the new section will inform and delight anyone interested in travel.
“Every month we’ll share travel secrets and tell you how to travel, whether you’re on a budget or splurging, whether you’re with kids or venturing away solo, whether you’re driving, flying or sailing,” Ms Apelgren said.
“So come away with us as we travel near and far. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the journey.”
The first edition of Away has been sent to TND subscribers as part of the regular Saturday morning newsletter.
Readers who are not subscribers can sign up by email to receive future editions free each month.
‘Away’ joins TND‘s expanding stable of specialist publications, which already includes a monthly residential housing guide called ‘Your Property’ and a specialist health publication coming in November.
The New Daily is an online-only news company owned by industry super funds, making it a genuinely locally-owned and operated business held by thousands of regular hard-working Australians through their retirement savings.
Since launching in late 2013, it has enjoyed strong growth. For the last six months, it has been in the top 20 news websites in the country, as ranked by Nielsen’s digital ratings. If foreign-owned media companies are subtracted from Nielsen’s ratings, The New Daily enters the top 10.
