The History of Lonely Planet Books

There is no name better known than Lonely Planet when it comes to travel guides.

Lonely Planet began in the early 1970s after founders Tony and Maureen Wheeler completed an overland journey from London through Asia and on to Australia.

That trip resulted in the first ever Lonely Planet guidebook - Across Asia on the Cheap - and laid the foundations of the world's leading independent travel publisher.

Tony and Maureen are still the proud owners, still on the road, and still finding the time to continually push the boundaries of travel publishing.
