Technical Help is Right Here

When you seek assistance with a technical query about site usage or setting up EOTrackMe, EOTopo, EOzi on your device/computer, the best place to ask for help is the ExplorOz Forum. Also keep in mind that all the documentation for our products is available online in the relevant sections. Try the site search or site menu.

Headlamps for Campers

Once again, we've sourced an amazing deal exclusively for ExplorOzers. We currently have a very limited number of these high-quality Black Diamond headlamps massively reduced by 25%.

Two models are available: one features hybrid power options either rechargeable (via USB) or standard AAA aklaline batteries. The other is a professional level headlamp with a massive 200 lumen output, waterproof construction and batteries-in-the-back design.

This is amazing value for a top quality product. View in the ExplorOz Shop

The 3rd edition to this popular guide book has been out of print for the last few months but is now back in stock due to a reprint. Yours from just $28.95 in the ExplorOz Shop

The ExplorOz Recipe Collection

The ExplorOz recipe collection is continuing to grow and we hope you are enjoying the great ideas shared by our community of expert bush cooks. This month our theme ingredient is Mince and we encourage you to share your favourite recipes to this category. Each entry submitted in the month of May will go into the random draw to win the Equip First Aid Pro 1 Kit, worth $111.

Road Alerts

Are you looking for the latest track conditions and news? It's all here in the Road Alerts section. This week we've also added a new travel tip blog with the confirmation of the 2015 Winter Road Closures in Parks Victoria. Thanks to Member - Mike (SA) for these updates.

Don't forget to add your comments to these track reports after you travel to add relevant anecdotal information that might help others.

Support ExplorOz

Operating requires staff and infrastructure, which requires a business operation to pay for it. Whilst you have the option to use the site for free, we can't operate the site for free!

You can help the site remain viable by supporting us in a number of ways:
  • clicking on the site ads helps us earn income from advertising;
You can also help our efficiencies and development of site content:
  • by submitting your photos online to Places;
  • by volunteering to write and submit technical or informative articles on relevant topics;
  • by volunteering to help publish new Trek Notes;
  • by communicating changes to Trek Notes that should be updated;
  • by noting map updates required for EOTopo;
  • by noting and submitting comments about track conditions in the specific Road Conditions reports;
  • by creating online Recipes in the ExplorOz recipe collection;
  • by posting photos of wildflowers you find to the Wildflower database (even if you can't identify them - the admins can);
  • by taking care when creating User Treks so that the names reflect the track name and they are split into logical segments that allow other users to download them or for us to use them for updating Trek Notes and EOTopo mapping;
  • by respecting the Forum Rules and Moderation Policy and respecting the volunteer Moderators and treating them fairly.
All we strive to do is keep ExplorOz a great online community that is run by travellers for travellers but it requires the commitment of the majority not the minority. Please consider any of the above ways that you can get more involved to help support ExplorOz.
