Edition 181: 14th May 2009
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
On the ExplorOz Shop, you'll find a mega sale on Explore Australia titles with prices slashed across 61 products. The full range of Explore Australia books is substantially reduced by 20%, and ExplorOz Australiamaps are reduced by 15%, so there is no better time to get yourself a great buy.
We are also pleased to advise that the popular Camping Guide to the NT, published by Boiling Billy, is finally back in print and we have plenty of stock ready for those that have been waiting for this book to become available once again.
A reminder that one of the best ways to get, or renew, ExplorOzMembership, is to place a shop order that qualifies for free Membership or Membership Renewal. Simply buy $150* worth of products to get FREE Personal Membership added to your cart automatically, or $75* worth of products within one month of your membership expiring to get a free renewal. It's that easy - and of course, you'll get all benefits of Membership for a full 12 months. *This offer excludes award exempt items.
The outback travel season is underway but for those that haven't left on a trip yet we take this opportunity to remind you to check the status of your First Aid Kit. We also suggest that you don't underestimate the importance of getting your Desert Parks Pass as early as possible as it contains some great planning information. As mentioned in our last newsletter, we now stock a great range of practical and usefulcamping accessories, and the ExplorOz Sandflag comes as a complete kit with telescopic pole, bracket and flag and takes the hassle out of solving how to rig up this very necessary safety gear if you're heading off into dune areas.
