Fairfax to publish Traveller glossyBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Friday, 18th May 2018 at 3:00pm
The new issue of Traveller magazine is labelled “The Europe Issue,” featuring articles about European destinations and important landmarks to visit.
“We have been able to capitalise on Australians’ interest in travel. It now means so much to Australians. If you look at the list of discretionary choices of expenditure by Australians, travel is right up there – almost too high perhaps when it ranks above tertiary education!
“Travel sections in general in Australia are a world phenomenon, not just domestically. We have had weekends where we have produced over 100 pages of travel content, which is unrivalled to my knowledge in the English-speaking world. The nearest best comparison would be the UK,” said Traveller editor Anthony Dennis in a Mediaweek interview.
The magazine is slated for release this weekend.

Surprisingly, the same gong was also bestowed on the Australian Financial Review’s Jo Aston, Edmund Tadros, Aaron Patrick, and Patrick Durkin for covering management issues at CPA Australia.
Ferguson/Williams also earned a Personal and Consumer Finance award, and Aston/Tadros/Patrick/Durkin prevailed on the Business and Company category.
Organisers stated that the joint awarding for Financial Journalist of the Year was warranted because both stories led to serious investigations by the Royal Commission into Financial Services.A list of awardees is available on the NPC website.
