Dear ExplorOz.com site user,

Changes... you asked and ExplorOz is delivering. Thanks to your valuable feedback, we've added new functions to the treks and Forum. In the market for 4WD accessories? Try before you buy - the ExplorOz 4WD features reviewed. What happened this year at the Birdsville Races? Great photos and local writeup.

Features Reviews
4WD accessories - how do they stack up?

Remember our Features section? Well, it just got better. Back from 2 months hard outback travel, Michelle & David's review the equipment used on the ExplorOz vehicle. Includes tyres, fridge, roller drawers, HF radio etc. Unbiased and honest reviews.

Birdsville Races
2001 in review You ask and we deliver. We've had quite a few questions regarding the Birdsville Races held every year in September. Thanks to input from the locals in Birdsville we now have a feature dedicated to the Birdsville Races. Couldn't make it this year? Read on...
Trek Changes
Trek references Ever wondered what the best map or book is for that trek you're planning? The ExplorOz team has written over 60 treks and we've added resources/references to every trek with a direct shop link so you know what to purchase before starting out.
Trek Feedback
Your feedback... Keeping our Trek Notes up-to-date is an ongoing job but thanks to our readers, we've been actively incorporating your feedback into our notes. To make it easier for you to know how accurate a report is, you will now see a Last Modified Date on each trek. 

Also, we've added a NEW feedback button that allows you to automatically submit info about the trek. This is not for asking questions (use the Forum for that) but this is for you to submit additional information about a trek other than what we have provided. This could also include permits/camping/road closures and interesting diversions or points of interest that you wish to share... Like the Forum this is easy and fun to read & use.

Survey Results
Forum changes The Forum is proving to be a huge success with at least 1 new question posted daily. Your survey feedback has allowed us to improve the way in which you use the Forum:

The forum now has ARCHIVES, TOPIC SEARCH & DATE SEARCH. Many topics are being repeated, so please use these tools to improve your access to this valuable information.

PLUS all questions and answers are viewed ON ONE PAGE, making it much easier and quicker to read/print.
