Tips for Buying Online

Most online shops take credit cards, however many do not offer the security of paying direct through a bank-managed system such as that offered on ExplorOz.

Earlier this year we installed the latest and greatest in online credit transaction facilities - the National Secure Internet Payment Service (from NAB). This has enabled us to speed up our order processing system, which means you get your goods faster, your trader ads go online immediately etc, and it also gives you the additional security of knowing that your transaction is being conducted directly with the bank so you are offered the same level of security as you receive using online banking services.

Unlike many online shops, ExplorOz also offers you the choice of calling our office to place your entire order over the phone. Speak to Jackie or leave your details on our answering service.

As a standard payment option, you may also elect to pay direct into our NAB account, or you have the choice of sending a cheque/money order instead - although that will most certainly delay the delivery time as we cannot send your goods before payment is received.


Puntawarri Track

ThePuntawarri Track is an east-west track situated between Jigalong and the Canning Stock Route (CSR).
Sights on the route include Robertson Range; the upper reaches of Savory Creek; the abandoned Puntawarri out-camp surprisingly left with excellent facilities intact; and various wildlife including camels and donkeys and spinifex plains all in a pristine desert environment.

Pick this Place Competition is Back

Yes, its back due to popular demand and the efforts of those people who have sent us more material.
