Members' File Swap
Recipes: Once again Member Brian P (SA) posted the winning entry by random draw in the Beef & Lamb competition last month and picks up an Campers Merchandise Pack valued at $42.95 as his prize! Unfortunately, due to the lack of monthly submissions that qualify for the prize draw we can no longer continue this competition.

The Oodnadatta Track
This unique travelling guide of the Oodnadatta Track takes you on a tour with forgotten stories of early Aussie explorers and pioneers. It details the events that earned this country the reputation of being such an unforgiving land; the rail accidents, plague, suicide and even murder, just to name a few! Tragedy, determination and prosperity, yep, it's all here! Members Price: $23.75

Super Special Deals
ExplorOz receives no funding or financial support to provide this public service despite the fact that we promote regional Australia and encourage local tourism. The site requires 3 staff members and has significant operating costs to manage a warehouse distribution point for our Shop; the site has Australian web-hosting; and we have our own in-house web developer that is responsive to the requests and needs of our site users. To operate ExplorOz we rely on our site users to pay for their use of the site through the voluntary Membership subscription. Once you join as a Member you will be surprised about the changes you'll see visually across the site (less ads), more features, cheaper shop prices, and free ads in the Classifieds, plus you'll have access to a wide range of additional tools and services. Membership subscription could be the key to ensuring ExplorOz is viable into the future but we have over 75,000 registered site users and only a little over 3000 of these are Members, although most of them are exceptionally happy and you can read their testimonials as reviews in the Membership Shop item to see why they like it so much. Membership is very affordable at only $49.95 for your first year and then only $29.95 to renew each year thereafter, or save yourself the hassle of annual renewals and get a Lifetime Membership. Please support a small Australian business and join up. We need you!Lifetime Membership
