Along with the popular rankings, stories fill the pages with newfound information including how to enjoy a weekend game of cricket.

“People in Victoria are not always conscious of what lies beyond the city,” said Emily Carr aficionado Elaine Limbrick. “They need to come out here to the West Shore and discover the wonderful landscapes as Emily Carr did.”
