Places: 6000 Campsites Australia wide

Friday, Aug 29, 2014 at 20:25


If it's campsites you're looking for, ExplorOz has pretty much got every listing that has ever been documented with over 6000 listings Australia wide (and that's just the camps & accommodation POIs). But first - here's a few tips for how to use Places to find these listings.

Using a computer to find campsites before you go

If you are trip planning from your home computer you can Browse "Places by Type" from the Places home page (selecting “Camps & Accom”).

The page defaults to show all the camps on the map but its very easy to quickly zoom in on an area or to select a state and then a region from the panel on the right of the map to pin-point the exact location of campsites by name on the map.

Once you've found a camp you're interested in, you can obtain further details by clicking the "Open Place" link. The full page for that Place will then appear – which shows a description, photos, reviews, other nearby Places etc.

Alternatively, you don't have to use the map to browse the database of campsites. Simply click the blue tab above the map to "View by Text".

This will provide an alphabetical listing which you can then resort using the Sort pull down list.

Finding Campsites when you're on the road

If you are travelling, you can use the camps finder using your current GPS position (from your smartphone, or tablet), although you need a mobile data connection to connect to ExplorOz (an offline app is planned for release). This means you don’t need to download any data as the system will guide you to the location.

Free GPS Downloads of Camps

Members can download the GPS positions for all these campsites (and any place in the entire Places database) directly off the website at any time, which you would then load to your navigation device.
