We’re about wanderlust… the spirit of adventure… the thrill of the chase… the unbeaten path. We’re about showcasing the best of the coast, the hotspots that locals know best.
Summer is an excuse to take the scenic route – time
to slow down and enjoy the long days and balmy nights. Summer means more beach, more sea and more time to soak up that stunning view that stretches 57-kilometres up and down the coastline. From Coolangatta to that iconic sign welcoming you to Surfers Paradise (arguably our most photographed location, though there is plenty of competition), summer on the Gold Coast is pretty darn special – and scout magazine is your perfect companion to enjoy it all.
You’ve no doubt heard it before, so consider this a gentle reminder to explore the beauty that beyond the Glitter Strip – the green behind the gold, if you will. Some of the best bush walks, waterfalls and quaint country towns await you in the Gold Coast hinterland, just a short drive west of our western suburbs. Whether you’re keen to cool off in a rock pool or find a mountain to climb, you’ll find plenty of local insight on our website. Just head to www.scoutmagazine.com.au to start exploring.
Whether you’ve packed us in your beach bag or your suitcase, we can’t wait for you to dive headfirst into this issue. We’re taking you island hopping and out on the water, sharing where the locals eat, play and explore in Main Beach and Coolangatta (or Cooli as we call it), and sharing all the ways you can cool off and feel the burn during these warmer months.
We will SHOP the new season threads, EAT at new hotspots and old faves, rediscover WELLBEING inside and out, ADVENTURE beyond the breaks, STAY just a night longer and venture ELSEWHERE when wanderlust calls.
As you scout around the Gold Coast make sure you check in with us on Instagram, Facebook or check our website for fresh stories.
