LocalYokl app for GC

By Aleisha Moore
A platform to connect travellers with locals for real, immersive experiences is gaining huge traction on the Gold Coast.

LocalYokl is a booking app that takes travellers to off-the-beaten tourist path destinations, and allows locals from the Gold Coast to show off different areas of a destination that is traditionally known as simply a beach and nightclub.
‘It’s really breaking out of that whole mould of this is the Gold Coast and you only go to the beach or the nightclubs or there’s only shopping to do,’ says Cushla May, a LocalYokl guide.
‘It’s painting different areas in a different light, and showing that there’s more to do that’s more cultural.’
There is an array of different tours available, from shopping, coffee, photography, cooking, luxury, adventure, yoga and more.
They are all low key, intimate, no-fuss experiences with small groups of often two to six guests.
The platform has recently grown to be Australia wide, allowing ordinary people to become tour guides and showcase the secrets of their region.
