Have you ever receive the best piece of travel advice from someone at the servo or the local pub? Well, it turns out that locals do know best…and a new Queensland start-up is proving it!
Localyokl is a new tour company that connects real locals with visitors wanting a unique and authentic experience. Whether you’re interested in chasing waterfalls, painting, wakeboarding, cooking, surfing or photography, (just to name a few), almost anyone can sign up to turn their hobby into a business. Visitors can book over 150 Queensland experiences through the website.
Imagine travelling to a new place and being able to book a private or semi-private tour with someone like-minded who lives and breathes a destination and shares your interests. Maybe they’ll whisk you away on a half-day adventure hitting their fave surfing spots, a walking tour of all the best photography vantage points with some hot shooting tips thrown in, an intimate hinterland expedition to chase waterfalls and stop at cute cafes and country pubs along the way, or a cruisy daytrip to explore the delights of somewhere like Bangalow or Byron.
From sharing your ride with Uber to opening your home or spare room via Airbnb; our world is a different place than it was five years ago.
We want visitors to our region to walk away with authentic, heart-filling holiday memories. To share stories of hanging with the locals at their favourite beaches, discovering neighbourhood cafe nooks, off-the-beaten track hinterland adventures, dining gems hidden in the ‘burbs, one-of-a-kind day trips with new friends, rubbing shoulders with the locals at a vibing Sunday picnic, and organic experiences that money can’t buy. Until now.
So visit Localyokl and discover the true Gold Coast!
