Adelaide, Country Victoria, Northern Territory & Tasmania in Lonely Planet’s Culture Trails

  • Written by Laura Hamilton


52 Perfect Weekends for Culture Lovers

 

Published this October, Lonely Planet’s Culture Trails explores the world’s most exciting cultural hubs – with Australia represented by Adelaide (“Australia’s Live Music City”), Country Victoria (Ned Kelly’s Bushranger Trail), the Northern Territory (Indigenous Art), and the gothic legacy of Tasmania.

 

From Copenhagen’s Design Culture to Literary Cape Cod – via Artisanal Marrakesh and Medici Florence – Culture Trails is Lonely Planet’s comprehensive guide to 52 weekends of culture heaven.

 

“When we travel,” Lonely Planet says, “the cultures of the countries we visit are usually what we notice first, and it is often what inspires us to visit in the first place. The memories we take home with us may be of artisans hammering on the streets, historic architecture looming around a plaza, or music wafting from a back-alley doorway: culture exists everywhere, and it means everything to the curious traveller.”

 

“We've scoured the globe to find the richest cultural enclaves,” Lonely Planet explains, “where the arts have had a profound, lasting impact and local culture is being protected and nurtured; where old customs hold true, new ones are being forged, or the past is melding with the future in fascinating ways. The cultural spectrum is broad: literature, art, architecture, music, theatre, dance, festivals, TV, film, comics — you name it, it's in here.”

 

In the tradition of Lonely Planet’s best-selling Wine Trails (2015) and Food Trails (2016), this new book features itineraries that include expert recommendations, with maps and practical details of how to get there and where to stay across the following inspirational Culture Trails:

 

Australia (Northern Territory, Country Victoria, Tasmania, Adelaide), Austria (Vienna), Belgium (Brussels), Brazil (Salvador), Bulgaria (West to East), Canada (Vancouver & British Columbia, Toronto & Ontario), Chile (Santiago & Valparaíso), China (Hong Kong, Beijing), Cuba (Havana), Denmark (Copenhagen), England (London, Oxford), Ethiopia (Northern Ethiopia), Finland (South to North), France (Paris, Dordogne, French Riviera), Greece (Athens), Hungary (Budapest), Iceland (Southwest Iceland), India (Mumbai, Rajasthan), Indonesia (Bali), Ireland (Dublin, West Ireland), Italy (Venice, Florence), Jamaica (Kingston), Japan (Tokyo, Naoshima Islands), Lebanon (Beirut), Mexico (Mexico City), Morocco (Marrakesh), New Zealand (North Island, South Island), Portugal (Lisbon), Romania (Transylvania), Scotland (Glasgow), Spain (Catalonia, Madrid, Seville), Taiwan (Taipei & around), and the USA (Los Angeles, Mississippi Delta & around, New York, Cape Cod, Washington, DC & around).
