Edition 163: 21st August 2008
Dear ExplorOz Reader,
Father's Day is just 3 weekends away so now is the time to start browsing the many excellent gift ideas we have in the ExplorOz Shop.
Why not use Your ExplorOz Wish List as the ideal way to tell the family what you'd like this Father's Day? We've just added a new tool to enable you to email your Wish List with a message to anyone. Simply go to the Shop and in the list of Categories you'll see My Wish List.
If you haven't built a Wish List - simply browse the items in the Shop, and click Add to Wish List. This tags the item into your Wish List for future reference.
We've also added the "Send to Friend" option at the bottom of each item displayed in the Shop so as you browse, rather than adding it to your Wish List you can send the suggestion to someone else.
To help you get started, we've put together some great Father's Day selections. Bargain buyers should look at the current Super Specials. For those that like to read you'll find an excellent range of fiction and non-fiction stories of colourful people, bizarre incidents and little-known facts about bush life in Australia in the Inspirational Reading, Outback Heritage, and Reference sections of our bookshop. For active Dads, we suggest Walking Guidebooks. This might also be the ideal time to get yourself some ExplorOz Gear - shirts, wheel covers, beanies and ExplorOz Membership (or Renewal). That's over 80 great ideas for Fathers Day pefectly suited to people that appreciate the Australian outdoors.
It's Wildflower Time in Western Australia
With the end of winter rains and warming conditions, now is the ideal time to come and see the magnificent blankets of wildflower colour in WA. Those with an adventurous heart and at least an AWD vehicle have the best access or you can simply visit the Kings Park Wildflower festival between 1st - 29th September. For tips you can read our Finding Wildflowers article, which complimented with the wonderful new book just arrived in our Shop, you'll be set to find spectacular flowers on your next drive.
