For the last 4 weeks, the ExplorOz Team have been away from the office doing what we love to do - remote area travelling, but now ...WE'RE BACK!

We've been on an incredible journey, which included the Anne Beadell Hwy and a double crossing of the Simpson Desert. Our "second home" is Birdsville so we spent 10 days wallowing in this special place before tracking back west over the desert and along the original section of Gunbarrel Hwy now called the Mulga Park - Giles Rd, through the Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal lands taking in Surveyor Generals Corner. A total of 7046.5km.

We have lots of tales, reviews, advice, trek updates and new trek notes to add to the site as a result of this trip plus we have formulated various new ideas for improvement on the site.

As an experiment we decided to run this entire trip without paper-based maps, relying solely on our GPS for navigation. Using OziExplorer we created route files and uploaded them to the GPS - and it was all just too easy! 

So keep on using the ExplorOz website for all your trip planning and product research. We've got Australia covered!
