Tony Wheeler's Islands of Australia
Lecture and Book Launch
Join Lonely Planet co-founder Tony Wheeler, Walkley Award–winning journalist Paul Daley and National Library Director-General Marie-Louise Ayres for the launch of Tony Wheeler’s Islands of Australia.
In Tony Wheeler's Islands of Australia, travel guru Tony Wheeler takes readers on a journey of exploration arounds some of Australia's more than 8,000 islands. Dip your toe in the crystal-clear waters of Queensland's postcard-perfect beaches, take a tour of a historic lighthouse and witness volcanic eruptions on remote and rugged subantartic outcops. Go behind the tourist brochure and discover the fascinating, and often dark, histories of Australia's islands: from tropical resorts gone belly-up to murder, mutiny and bloodshed.
