Copyright Infringements

We have recently identified 2 unauthorised incidents where the Sydney Daily Telegraph have used editorial material created by I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd for which we hold the copyright. The articles were verbatim extracts of 2 of our Trek Notes from the ExplorOz website.

We ask all of you to be vigilant in advising us of any breaches you find in any other publications - such as magazines, newspapers and websites.

Current Forum Sponsor(s)

Each newsletter, we will promote the current sponsor(s) of the ExplorOz Forum. 

For the 2nd fortnight in a row, we are pleased to promote Cobb Australia, the makers of the versatile and popular Cobb Cooker. Take a search in our Forum for discussions on the Cobb cooker, and you'll see some interesting threads including tips, recipes, and reviews from real people who own and use one of these little beauties. 

Cobb Cookers are available direct so take the Forum's word for it and get yourself one based on real advice, not a salesman spiel.

Sponsors have their logo/banner (as a link to their website) in the right hand margin of Forum Pages - it either appears when you view the index of all questions, or when you open up specific questions to read, or post - ie. there are 2 options.

Note for Sponsors

Forum Sponsorship is available for short or long term arrangements. Advertising in the Forum is billed on a daily rate of $16.50 and billed monthly on the pro-rata amount used (a full month = $500). Each day, there are around 10,000 page views of the Forum. Give it a try!

Dear ExplorOz Reader,

We need your Help!
There are plans and expectations that ExplorOz will showcase the Variety Club 4WD Event by taking a satellite tracking device (thanks to SatTrak24) to send regular position data of the vehicles back to the ExplorOz website for online event mapping using
iMapPlot maps. It is anticipated that the "online event" would certainly include some TV, radio and newspaper coverage during the 9 day event.

Variety Club and their sponsors are keen to see the 4WD Event be presented in this manner and we don't want to let them down - but if we can't raise the entry fee then we can't participate and the entire plan goes out the window!

Donations are handled via our online shop - with donations available in lots of $5. Simply change the qty in your shopping cart to donate more than $5 (ie. $10, $15, $20 etc).

This highly comprehensive book covers all parks and forest areas in Qld in full colour will all information about what's in the park in terms of facilities, walking tracks, permits required etc. It doesn't focus specifically on driving tracks within parks but is a very worthwhile guidebook for getting the most from your explorations of Queensland.
