Dear ExplorOz Reader,
Fuel prices may well be up, but our statistics show that
this hasn't stopped people from travelling at all - far from it.
In fact, even the long-haul
desert trips are still attracting large numbers of
adventurers - and we've had a sellout year in our
Adventure Shop to prove it, with
Desert Parks Permits topping the list of the most popular
single product we sell!
We have had a few queries lately in relation to
delayed orders when in actual fact it has been
waiting at the nearest post office! Aswe use Australia Post and many
large orders are sent in 3kg satchels
please be aware that your postie will not
leave it (unless you are home) so therefore they
will hold it at the post office untilyou collect it. They will
leave a slip in your letterbox to advise there is a
parcel to collect. And
also just a reminder that when you place the order
our system does advise you of the delivery time
- and that you can select the Express Post method if
you require a faster delivery time and a more secure
delivery method that includes parcel tracking.
