It’s a WILD WORLD with Lonely Planet

Explore the most majestic, mystical and thrilling places on earth with WILD WORLD, Lonely Planet’s thought-provoking new collection of photography from every continent, published this November.

Following the success of Lonely Planet’s 2013 bestseller Beautiful World, WILD WORLD shares some of each continent’s most sublime corners, from the Arctic’s tundra to the great deserts of central Asia; from the world’s largest cave to its wind-whipped mountain peaks. This new book also introduces some of the planet’s quirkier residents and immerses readers in the world’s most extraordinary natural phenomena.

The 198 expertly-chosen, full-colour photographs in WILD WORLD take the armchair traveller to wonderful places, far and wide, and are sure to inspire new journeys off the beaten track.

Australia is featured in 13 of the book’s lavishly-reproduced photographs:

· Beech tree, Tasmania
· Bouncing kangaroos; Cape Le Grand, Western Australia
· Bungle Bungle Range; Purnululu National Park, Western Australia
· Cassowary, Queensland
· Flying foxes, Northern Territory
· Galahs
· Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
· Hill Inlet; Whitsunday Islands National Park, Queensland
· Lightning strike, Queensland
· Portuguese-man-o-war, East Coast Australia
· Twisted tea tree; Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary, Western Australia
· Termite tower; East Kimberley, Western Australia
· Wielangta forest; Tasmania

“Curating this book, it was clear that humans have left their mark on almost every inch of the globe, from the rainforests of South America and Africa to the oceans’ reefs,” the book’s Introduction observes. “But, despite all the changes we have wrought upon it, our home still has the power to evoke awe, respect, passion and protectiveness, to comfort and thrill us, to change our lives. Billions of years after it was forged, it’s still a WILD WORLD.”
