||We've changed how Member discounts are applied when you join as a new Member. Now, if you add ExplorOz Membership to your Shopping Cart you will receive 5% discount off all items you put into your cart in that transaction. Before this, your Member discounts were not available until your next order as this required you to be "logged on" for Members rewards to be activated. The free shipping qualification will also apply if the value is over $150. All you need to do is ensure Membership Personal or Membership Lifetime is loaded into your cart. |
Use this opportunity to maximise your savings!
||ExplorOz Wildflowers now features the Blooming News - a new tab on the main page. Blooming News is where you'll find relevant tips and alerts from our budding (pardon the pun) Wildflowers administrators.|
This week, Val is seeking help from the audience in locating photos of Coolabah buds, flowers or gumnuts to give us a more complete picture of this iconic inland gumtree. If you have pics, please upload here.
We are also looking for photos of boab flowers but you would have to have been lucky enough to have been through the Kimberley
in the wet. Can anyone confirm that their scent is like carnations?
The ExplorOz Wildflower Database is designed to allow everyone the opportunity to contribute to its growth (yes another pun). So please get involved by sharing your photos or adding new plants.
||EOTopo is a fully revised and updated Australia-wide topographic map and data set. If you've previously used NATMAP Topo 250, you should upgrade to EOTopo 200K. You'll find EOTopo is significantly improved with many new roads/tracks plus there's been a massive restyling of the topography features, labels and colour schemes to improve viewing on modern devices such as smartphones, tablets and navigators. This is a whole of Australia product at a scale of 1:200 000 so is the only solution for the true explorer. Also features additional map files and the full POI file to enable you to load Places to the map on demand. Don't leave home without it! |

Whilst the wet season in the Northern Territory has “officially” ended, some areas in the national parks are yet to open. At Kakadu they are currently grading the Old Jim Jim Road and work is happening at Jim Jim and Twin Falls.
Seasonal road closures commence Thursday 12 June 2014 (the Thursday after the Queen's Birthday long weekend) and finish on the 31 October 2014 (the Friday before the Melbourne Cup Day long weekend). Some tracks in the Yarra Ranges, Bunyip State Park and, the Alpine National Park at higher altitudes were subject to early closures on 1st May 2014; some other tracks extend past the general closure period up until the end of November. These will be promulgated shortly.
