Welcome to the tourist office

The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.

Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!

This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:

  • the Humanities desk, which deals with geopolitics, culture, and human geography
  • the Science desk, which deals with natural processes, physical geography, and engineering (vehicles, transportation design, etc.)

Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

Want a faster answer?

How can I get my question answered?

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post personal contact information – it will be removed. We'll answer here within a few days.
  • Don't post questions that common sense or a search engine can answer in a couple of seconds.

How far away is the Isle of Man from England’s mainland?[edit]

I would like to know how far away it is in kilometres, because I am starting a theory about how cats got to the Isle of Man, and how Manx cats lost their tails.

Please tell me.

It's 58 km from Scotland, according to Google. Ground Zero (talk) 20:10, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

I asked for England, not Scotland.

Try Google. England and Scotland are on the same mainland. Ground Zero (talk) 20:47, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@Answermeplease11: - perhaps ask User:ThunderingTyphoons! or User: SHB2000 (talk | contribs) 22:13, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you!

Road to Haycock Point paved? (NSW south coast)[edit]

Is the road to haycock point paved? It’s in Ben Boyd national park and this is my first time going to the nsw south coast from Sydney. Asked by: 2001:8004:C43:3B4D:CF3:48C6:D95C:B15 12:46, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

The park management says no, it's gravel. -- 03:04, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
I've been here before and no, it's not. It's 8km one way and also note that you've got to follow the Ben Boyd NP signs when you're on the A1. Once you've seen this sign, turn left. Then follow the signs to Haycock Point. Google Maps often gets it wrong.
By the way, since this is your first time going to the South Coast, I'm presuming your staying at Merimbula, Pambula or Eden. Here's some other good places there in the area:
  • Merimbula Boardwalk
  • Eden Killer Whale Museum
  • The Eden Harbour lookout (check local signs)
  • Tourist Drive 9
  • Bar Beach
  • Middle Beach
  • Porteroo Palace
And if you're going swimming at the beach, it will be cold out there. I went there on a summer and the water was still freezing (to a Sydneysider, but most of the tourists there are Victorians and not New South Welsh people.
And don't attempt to bring a sedan here, my 4WD couldn't go more than 15km/h here and it'll be worse with the recent floods.
Enjoy your time there, SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 04:20, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
