Tony Wheeler Australian Short Book – On Travel

Tony Wheeler is ‘the trailblazing patron saint of the world’s backpackers and adventure travelers’ New York Times

Tony Wheeler, travel addict, Lonely Planet founder and intrepid traveller over five decades, has discovered that the more you travel, the more extraordinary the world becomes. His enthusiasm for trekking the globe is contagious: it is impossible to read On Travel without scouring for deals, searching for unusual places, and deciding to leave the luggage behind in an escape to the unfamiliar.

About Tony Wheeler

A trek along Asia’s ‘hippie trail’ in 1972 led to Tony and Maureen Wheeler creating travel publisher Lonely Planet, and to the New York Times describing him as ‘the trailblazing patron saint of the world’s backpackers and adventure travelers’. Wheeler has been involved with the Planet Wheeler Foundation’s work on more than fifty projects in the developing world and the establishment of Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas.
