introducing John Chapman

If you want to hike in Australia, you want to know John Chapman. He is the hiking author down under.

John and his wife Monica authored the first 3 editions of the Lonely Planet bushwalking guides for Australia. When John decided to self-publish the 4th edition, Lonely Planet changed the title and focus of their guide, now more of a general overview: Lonely Planet Walking in Australia

Many hikers from abroad are unaware of John’s 4th edition. (Only the 3rd edition is listed on, for example.) Check John Chapman’s up-to-date list of his many published guidebooks.

For example, I will be buying his dedicated Overland Track guidebook for a planned pilgrimage to Tasmania in 2007.
