Dear ExplorOz Reader,
Recent site improvements and new features have brought about a further
surge in site traffic on ExplorOz.com with our forecasted March figures
expected to come in at 600,000 sessions for the month - almost doubling
our monthly site traffic. We've got a lot of new things still to come
this year to tantalise you, and will continue to use our e-Newsletter to
officially launch these so watch this space!
||New 'Places' Database
is the new ExplorOz central storehouse of all physical locations
that have a known waypoint.
74,000 Places in this database assigned as one (or more) of 39
Point of Interest categories, there is a lot of useful content
here! Unlike other Place Name databases available on the net,
is fully geo-referenced. Additionally, within each Trek
Note, any waypoint that is listed will cross-link to the Places
database which will show additional information for that location
including up to 5 photos, and a detailed text description. For an
example of how this works, see the Canning Stock Route waypoint
will also become an interactive site area enabling you to enter text and
upload photos of Places you have been.

News from Jackie @ The Shop
Being part of the ExplorOz Team now for 8 months I thought I should introduce
myself and make mention that I am now more involved with our Adventure Shop
since taking over Juliana's role. Firstly, I would like you to know that our
customers are important to us and your feedback and help is always appreciated.
In particular if there is a product you are looking for and we don't appear to
have it on the site please let me know and I will try to locate it for you.
Can't make any promises but I will certainly try!!!
Over the next few weeks I
have been given the opportunity to offer some discounts on selected shop
items including maps, books and CD's. Please note this offer is only for
a limited time with limited stock. So it is on a "first to

to beat the rush on Latest Releases announced in newsletters, you can
often buy BEFORE the newsletter feature - just click on the button. Updates
are being made on a regular basis so you may find it worth taking a
regular look here.
Please feel welcome to email me for any product assistance and don't
forget I can take your order over the phone if you prefer. Happy
