Cover of October 2014 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: Our cover story this month takes us to Australia’s great outdoors, exploring wine country, whale shark diving and whitewater rafting in Tasmania’s wild west, and much more.
  • Destinations: We ditch the diet in Tokyo, eating our way through its cool sushi spots; pack up our ski gear and find out where the best winter sports breaks are this season; and discover Peru’s skyscraping Choquequirao route to Machu Picchu.
  • Features: If you’re thinking about a sabbatical, this issue’s report delves into round-the-world trips, from destinations to deals; and we take a walking trip through Croatia.
