In this newsletter you'll find out about major changes to ExplorOz Blogs - just in time for your holiday travel journals. And, if you’re looking for a challenging hike to work off your holiday indulgences, read up about the St Mary Peak and Wilpena Pound Walk that has just been added to our Treks section.

Big Blog Changes
Just launched today, the entire Blogs section on ExplorOz has undergone a massive look/feel overhaul. We've finally added some necessary tweaks with a major focus on offering a range of search options. You can find blogs for any Member using a look-up, or enter any word to search all blogs containing that word/phrase, or you can search by tag to keep reading on a favourite topic or theme. All these changes have been made with consultation with supporting Members who've provided feedback. As usual, this is the first stage of development so let us know your ideas/comments for future refinements.
