Welcome to 2002 - the Year of the Outback
Now's the time to start planning your outback
trip for this year and www.ExplorOz.com is
going to help you all the way.
KIDS CAN COME TOO!
Heading off with the rugrats this year? Check our tips
and ideas in the latest article written by Michelle Jacka. This now
makes 10 topics under the Preparation menu! This article is especially aimed towards travelling with babies,
based on our 2 mth trip in the outback with our 8mth old baby, but also
contains some tips for all age groups up to teenagers.|
We'd love to make this a really useful page, with lots of input from
those of you who have also travelled with kids. Your input is welcome and
will be added to the page.
NEW PRODUCTS IN THE SHOP
This handy little log book is hot demand so we've stocked up ready for your
orders. It even has a plastic map scale ruler bound into the book for those
of you who know what to do with it. A good idea for keeping track of your
vehicle statistics and enough pages for multiple journeys. |
Trip Log book $9.95
OziExplorer is GPS mapping software that enables you to view maps on your
computer and interface this with your GPS so what you see is a realtime
moving position of where you are on the map. Highly recommended, a well
researched product with compatibility across most GPS units and with most digital
GPS Mapping Software $130
SA Desert Parks Pass
This year's SA
Desert Parks Passes (2003 expiry), have just arrived in stock. We
recommend purchasing your pass in the early stages of your trip planning
because not only do you get a windscreen sticker but an excellent guide book
explaining the various regions and parks covered by the DPP plus 5 WestPrint
maps and a NEW CBRS Repeater Tower Map for outback SA.|
As an agent for the DEH SA, we can also process your renewalthrough the Adventure Shop, so even if you didn't get yours originally
from us, we can process your renewal for this year.
Desert Parks Pass $80
Unfortunately, we have been forced to discontinue offering Magazine
Subscriptions. Although we strive to offer you as large a range of products
as possible, this is not an item that we can hold in stock and so we have
relied on the magazine publishers subscription department to process orders.
Due to complaints from unhappy customers who have experienced delays in
receiving their magazines from the publishing company, we have decided to
remove all magazines from our shop. For your sake, poor service from
suppliers is not tolerated by us. So there!
reports||Even though most people aren't doing much
outback travelling during the peak of high summer, we do keep our reports
But we still need YOUR help. We are finding it difficult to obtain
local and accurate information for Victoria and NSW (only interested in
dirt roads), so please if you know anything relevant pls send emailand help the rest of the world know what's going on!
