AUCKLAND, Today: NZ-only travel magazine Scout – the 4th new 2020 publication out of School Road Publishing – goes on sale nationwide this morning.

Editor Sarah-Kate Lynch said: “Scout is a monthly ode to our very own backyard. It acts as lead tour guide in this exciting new endeavour, showcasing the beauty and brilliance of Aotearoa.

“From Kaitaia to Bluff, Scout takes readers to every nook and cranny, shining a light on places familiar and those you’ve never heard of.

“At a time when Kiwis feel luckier than ever to live in the land of the long white cloud, Scout beckons readers in to celebrate their homeland, its people and to proudly explore the waiting wonders at their doorstep.

Scout has deployed a team of talented, and sometimes surprising, travel writers to bring readers engaging stories, stunning photography, and need-to-know information on the latest hotspots and hidden gems.”

Lynch is a best-selling author, and award-winning TV scriptwriter and columnist.

“I was born with itchy feet – but right now there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in Aotearoa.”

Sarah-Kate Lynch: “I was born with itchy feet and have jumped at every chance my whole life to go here, there and anywhere – but right now there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in Aotearoa.

“What we have right on our doorstep in New Zealand is 268,021 square kilometres of beautiful beaches, mountains, lakes, rivers, towns, cities, bush walks, bike tracks, train journeys, national parks and gorgeous islands. Whether you’re parked in your armchair or packing your bags, Scout will take you there.

Scout’s debut issue leads with the tale of courageous Kaikōura – the seaside settlement on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island pluckily picking up the pieces after 2016’s devastating earthquake and the pandemic.”

“Scout also boasts a dynamic digital community incorporating official website, and dedicated social media channels.
