Scenic Road Magazine
Our Story & Timeline
Scenic Road Magazine is proudly produced by Luisa Slack-Smith with the help and support of her husband Drew and their three children Leo, Rosie and Gigi.
The layers of the Slack-Smith family run deep into the Scenic Rim community. With two successful businesses running here to keep them occupied Luisa and her family are busy little bee's.
The magazine began a few years ago and has since grown into the iconic publication that we know in our community today.
The creative control is in Luisa's capable hands. Her history of working in sales and marketing has fostered her trained eye for particular quality. Thanks to this, her magazine is aesthetically appealing and tells the stories of our communities history from her modern perspective.
When Luisa first embarked on the journey of creating and publishing EDITION No. 1 her family thought she was crazy. It didn't matter though, she was determined to make the idea work, and she did.
Although the endeavour wasn't easy, Luisa proved to herself and onlookers that the magazine could be a success.
She carefully selected talented photographers and other team members including a graphic designer to produce the final product. This was a challenge but today the magazine team is strong.
The success of the magazine is a credit to all of our team members. Each play such an important role in the overall production.
Also, to our customers who willingly support our publication by advertising their stories with us. These stories play an integral role in the Scenic Road Magazine readers journey.
Scenic Road Magazine
Our contributors are carefully selected, each chosen for their special talents and expertise. The quality of their work is encapsulated in the overall production of the magazine.
Each phase of our production needs thorough attention, together as a team we ensure the final details of the publication are immaculate.
We employ local talent as part of our team because we are invested in seeing our local economy grow.
We use local photographers and have managed to source a designer who grew up in the Scenic Rim region. Our contributors all have a personal connection to the Scenic Rim, we believe this is important to maintain the overall integrity of our publication and small business.

Hi I'm Luisa Slack-Smith and welcome to Scenic Road Magazine.
My family are lovers of the outdoors, horses and country living. We like to go on family road trips to visit new places and meet new people.
Our country is rich with beauty and through the eyes of my magazine, I hope my readers can find their own fascination in the stories of the people, the produce and the places behind our thriving community.
I hope to meet you soon, Lu.
