Hi ExplorOz Reader,
We hope you enjoy this week's edition of our newsletter with all the latest information about what's happening on the website.
New Wildflowers Section
||Appreciating native flora and fauna is one of the great joys of "Exploring Oz", particularly the search for, identification and photography of Australian Wildflowers.|
Based on your feedback, we have created a Wildflowers database, which displays an image, description, identification notes, location and references for plants found throughout Australia.
Wildflower enthusiasts Member - John and Val have been busy uploading records into the system to get things started, however all registered site users have access to create pages, edit existing records and upload images. So, please take the time to have a look and contribute!
Also in development is an all new Recipes Section, so please start compiling recipes and photos of your favourite camp dishes ready to share soon!

Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park News
||Halligan Bay Point will now be included as part of the Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre National Park thanks to a generous donation of the site from Anna Creek Station.|
Halligan Bay Point is one of two camping and viewing areas for Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre, which has previously benefitted from infrastructure installed by the DENR several years ago, and the integration of the site into the national park will ensure its maintenance as a public use camp ground in future.
