User Treks - raw data files require mapping software such as OziExplorer/TrackRanger. Compatible with Hema HN series navigators.
consists of over 80,000 POIs. These are categorised into 8 primary Place types. Camp sites are just 1 of the 8 different "Place Types" and contains over 5700 POIs and includes Camp Fee (red tent symbol with $), Camp Free (green tent symbol), Caravan Parks (blue van under a tree symbol), and Resort/Motel (H symbol).
To find camps in a particular area, simply use the site menu and select Places - you'll notice you can Browse By a range of options. Select Place Type - and then select Camps/Accom. You can view results in a text list, or via a map. You will initially see results for all of Australia but you can use the Refine option to select a State, and then you can Refine again to select a Region (eg. South Australia - Flinders Ranges).
When viewing the text list, Places appear in alpha order. When viewing the map, you will see Places grouped together in numbered clustered as shown in the image below.
The numbers indicate how many Places in the area. Click the numbers to expand/zoom the Places so each Place is positioned on the map. Sometimes you'll see more cluster groups so continue to click and the map will auto-zoom so you can see each POI on the map in its precise location.
We recommend the full screen view when using the map to allow you to zoom in for best detail. The map usually defaults to a topo map view which can zoom into a scale of 144K, but greater zoom is available if you switch the map layer button (top right of map window) and select a street map or satellite image. Note for outback areas, the topo map layer will contain better detail whilst Street maps are best for viewing detail in built-up areas.
You can use the website to find camp sites from your computer, iPad or
phone when you have internet service, or better still get the ExplorOz Traveller app for your Android/Apple devices
and you can download the entire Places system to your iPad, tablet or phone to easily find the perfect camp when you are offline - anytime, anywhere.
But remember Camps is just 1 of 8 different Place Types. We also have Geography POIs, Heritage, Infrastructure, Population, Recreation, Reserves, and Services. ExplorOz Places is the largest, verified database of POIs customised for recreational travellers like you.
