New look for LANDSCOPE after 29 years

New look for LANDSCOPE after 29 years

One of the stalwarts of the Western Australian magazine industry – the Department of Parks and Wildlife’s LANDSCOPE magazine –– has a fresh new look.

Director General Jim Sharp said this significant redesign - the biggest in the magazine’s 29-year-history - aimed to provide readers with new features and a fresh updated look, while maintaining the elements that readers looked forward to each issue.

“For 29 years, LANDSCOPE magazine has been delighting readers with fascinating articles and stunning photography that provide insight into Western Australia’s beautiful natural areas, the unique plants and the animals that live there, and the opportunities available for people to experience national parks, marine parks and other reserves,” he said.

The quarterly magazine has been supported by very loyal readers and we trust the new design will appeal to our existing subscribers while making the magazine appealing to a new and diverse audience.”

Mr Sharp said the new features of the magazine reflected the new department and promoted the opportunities available for people to get out and enjoy Western Australia’s beautiful areas and world-class facilities, in line with the State Government’s Parks for People initiative.

“WA boasts some of the world’s most magnificent and diverse ecosystems and we are lucky enough to have some amazing facilities and tourism opportunities. The new-look magazine has a number of new features to showcase these, including ‘Adventure out’ and ‘Parks for people’,” he said.

“Of course LANDSCOPE will continue to profile people who have played significant roles in shaping park management and wildlife conservation.

“We hope our younger readers will enjoy the new ‘kaleidoscope – kids in nature’ feature too.”

LANDSCOPE can be purchased for $7.95 at newsagents or online at the Parks and Wildlife shop ( or at Parks and Wildlife offices throughout WA.
