As tourists, we usually like to head off to the information centre, grab a handful of brochures, have a chat with the local staff, and then head out.

Maybe you don’t travel much, but there’s nothing to stop you being a tourist in your own town.

We can’t know everything even if we are locals, and there must be something in the stories about the places where we live that brings all these people here.

They seem to be having a great time wandering around and taking zillions of photos!

So join in the fun, take a stroll down main street with the Out & About tourist magazine in your hand, and blend in.

You can have a refresher here, to remind you of all the great things in your own backyard. Enjoy!
