INFORMATION YOU CAN TRUST
When ExplorOz was just a dream, travellers got information via the traveller's grapevine. People would congregate around fuel bowsers and clothes lines in camp grounds to share tips about which roads to avoid, and places not to miss!
Fast forward 20 years and now we have so much information at our finger-tips it's often hard to limit our sources and know who to trust.
Unlike magazines or Forum sites, we publish pages within sections
dedicated to that information and constantly refresh and update those
pages. These pages do not become diluted through public hearsay as the public contributions are clearly distinguished from our published/verified content. This is why we offer both User Treks and ExplorOz Treks as 2 distinct sources.
Every day at ExplorOz we are receiving and responding to emails from
travellers, from operators, shire councils, National Parks, and all the
organisations that care about you getting the right information.
Sometimes we even get alerts about typos that have been entered as public contribution (eg. Places) and we fix that too.
The Places and Treks databases are always your main source of
information as this content is checked and verified. You can access this offline via the Traveller App - and
receive free updates at the press of a button.
Since we've released our new app - ExplorOz Traveller, we've found a huge increase in people making updates through the live databases. Adding comments, reviews, photos and descriptions. Please keep it coming!
ExplorOz Traveller is designed as an app that allows you to load and go with confidence. After your initial purchase, you simply press the on-screen buttons to download the required maps and databases (internet required) and then you're ready to go!
The app is deliberately designed to allow you to spend less time "planning" and more time "enjoying" your trip. For instance, on those days when things don't go to plan and you know you're not going to reach your destination for the day, you click the Places Map button and it will show where you are, so you can pan around the area looking for camp site icons. Click any that interest you to access detailed information - all the good ones will have photos and reviews by other travellers so you will know exactly what to expect and be able to determine if it's suitable for your needs.
The other useful tool is the Places List, which shows all nearby Places based on your current position and refreshes as you move. Each Place in the list will show a bearing direction arrow, and distance. So you won't just see what's on the road ahead - but everything within the surrounding area. This is ideal as it can lead you away from noisy camps too close to the road. ExplorOz Traveller helps take care of the unforeseen.
Many travellers are reporting that the app is allowing them to find many more places than they would ever have found on their own, which is what we like to hear. You will ExplorOz Better with the ExplorOz Traveller App.
