ExplorOz Newsletter - Issue 119

23rd November, 2006. In this issue: New ExplorOz Stickers, Christmas Special, ExplorOz Website Updates and New Member Benefits for online Shoppers.

Dear ExplorOz Reader,
Maps, Books - Custom selection of the best on the market specifically for self-drive travellers

It’s that time for another fortnightly newsletter and isn’t it amazing how fast the weeks go by. Before you know it, we will be toasting to another year with a famous Aussie roast and a nice beer or wine in hand.


It’s been a controversial week for West Australians, with daylight savings getting the nod for a three year trial starting on December 3rd. It will be a very interesting Summer for W.A. considering the State has rejected the idea for the past 31 years. With only a 2 hour difference between the East and the West coast, this will certainly be more positive for business.

We have added some great new products to the ExplorOz Shop for you to put beneath your Christmas tree. Also, browse through our existing titles and get in early while we still have stock on hand.

ExplorOz Website Updates

We have had a predominantly positive response to the changes recently made to the look and feel of the website in the past few weeks. Invisible or ‘behind the scenes’ improvements are ongoing and this includes ironing out bugs and increasing site performance for our ever-growing audience. There have also been significant visual changes and this is mostly evident in the articles, which are receiving a new face lift with added content and pictures.
