Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Can we whet your appetite for travel?
Frequent users might have already noticed changes to the Treks Search layout. This has been edited to fit with our fresh new site style, which also provides many improvements and new features such as Most Popular and Recently Added Treks. You'll also enjoy the enhanced search functions such as typed queries, search by map, or search by state. Plus, you can choose to display your search results by a list or on a map.

Jetboil Cooking SystemWhipping up a batch of tea or coffee at the side of the road seems like a luxury overshadowed by hassle, until you consider bringing along a Jetboil Flash Cooking System.
The Jetboil Flash cooking system is an all-in-one design, combining burner and cooking vessel in one compact unit - everything you need is stacked and stored inside the 1L cooking cup. Igniting with the click of a button, it will brew two perfect cups of coffee in just two minutes, plus you can include the Jetboil Coffee Press, which uses the French press method (no filters, utensils, or coffee steeping bags required). Components disassemble to nest within the Flash, requiring no extra space.
Win one of 4 Jetboil Flash Systems
To celebrate the addition of the Jetboil range to the ExplorOz Shop, we have 4x Jetboil Flash + Coffee Press packs to give away, there are two ways to win, see this blog for our member's only competition, and this blog for our shop competition (open to everyone).
As mentioned a few weeks ago, the ability to add a
Travellers Comment in Road Conditions, which had been disabled for so long, is
now working once again and we urge you to make the effort to post your travel
comments here to best get the information out to interested people. The idea
with the Travellers Comment is to fill the gap between the published reports
and benefit from the travellers grapevine to share your recent experiences.
More work is currently underway in Road Conditions – see our
next newsletter for more information.
