Lonely Planet opens new headquarters

Lonely Planet’s new headquarters in the inner-city suburb of Carlton, Melbourne opened this week.

The offices are across levels two and three of The Malt Store building, the former Carlton & United breweries site. It includes a reception area that doubles as a full retail shop, ‘showcasing Lonely Planet’s extensive suite of products, including guides, kids’ books, travel merchandise and gift pictorials’.

Lonely Planet CEO Daniel Houghton said in a statement: ‘We are excited that our team in Australia, who are so pivotal to many aspects of Lonely Planet’s business, have a workspace that allows effective and enjoyable working, and reflects our brand heritage and passion for travel.’

Lonely Planet’s distribution warehouse has also moved, relocating from Footscray to a larger, custom-fit facility in Bentleigh in Melbourne’s south-east.
