Lonely Planet Releases Five New Regional Guides to Australia

Lonely Planet, the world’s leading travel content provider, is all over Australia this winter, with five new regional guidebooks due for release in July and August.

As with all Lonely Planet guides, these new editions are by independent experts authors who have visited the places they’ve written about, and who tell it like they see it.

What they’ve discovered, what they recommend, and what they’ve left out – all will be revealed when these new guidebooks are released over the next two months.
