Edition 356: 20 October 2014

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

First up we're thrilled to share the good news with you confirming that the recent ExplorOz National Gathering raised a total of $3189.95 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS). These funds are being donated to the RFDS Clinic in Louth, who have a list of specific items they hope to purchase with the funds raised. In addition, a much-needed shade-shelter was purchased and donated at a presentation at the gathering to a representative from the Louth Clinic. Many thanks to all of you that attended the gathering and participated in the fund raising activities and to all of you that couldn't attend but purchased online raffle tickets for the saw blade painting. This was a sensational contribution to a great cause. Many thanks to Member - Sir Kev & Darkie for his organisation of a successful event on all levels.

Our New Beanie - Itchy bean­ies are a thing of the past with the new ExplorOz beanie featuring a soft & warm fleece liner stitched to the inside of the hat like an inner headband. The inner fleece is also designed for mois­ture wick­ing, which draws per­spi­ra­tion away from your skin. The double layer ribbed-knit style is a generous shape that keeps the ears warm on even the largest head! You don't want to miss out on one of these! See more photos and details

ExplorOz ImageSpell Check - Spell Check features are located throughout the site to help you when you post content to any of the interactive sections including Forum, Blogs, Places, Reviews, etc. Whilst this feature has actually been broken for a long while, we've just fixed it so don't forget to use it.
Wildflower Image Bloomin' News - Verticordia is a genus of the big Myrtaceae family that includes gum trees and bottlebrushes. They are woody shrubs with small, exquisite flowers that are often described in superlatives. The shrubs form massed displays in woodlands and heaths. The fringed or feathered appearance of the flowers is often enhanced by vivid and contrasting colours, giving rise to the common name of Featherflowers. There is a great variety displayed within and between the hundred or so species. Verticordia are native to Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Have you got photos of Featherflowers that you could add to the Wildflowers section?

Shop Image Trailer Guides - This new Australian made & owned product is a multipurpose visual aid for hitching, reversing and driving any towed vehicle such as a boat, jet ski, car and bike trailers, 6×4, tradesman and camper trailers, caravans and horse floats.
