But wait... there's more!

A wonderful response from our advertisers to our call for Event Sponsorship has meant that we are about to launch a series of fabulous auctions, sales and raffles right here on ExplorOz.com

Look out soon for these excellent opportunities to win, buy or auction yourself some excellent deals on equipment for your 4WD, trailer or camping needs plus all sorts of useful outback gear and travel-related items!

Proceeds from these raffles, auctions and sales will also go towards helping us raise the minimum $3500 donation to participate in the Variety Club event.

In this comprehensive article, Malcolm Street looks at the major vehicle considerations plus the equipment you need when towing safely.
