QPA Maps and Books

ExplorOz is now selling Quality Publishing Australia (QPA) maps and books. These cover all of Australia. Rather than labelling the maps by state, QPA maps focus on sections of Australia and refer to them geographically, such as North East of Australia, South East etc. Based in Western Australia, QPA products also include an extensive range of WA products.

Highlights and Amusements Maps

These are unusual, but highly practical maps - using a map format, the main intent of the information presented is to pinpoint highlights and amusements to be found in towns and regional areas across Australia. Handy for travellers wanting to know the main attractions of an area, and each amusement venue is featured with its website address. Great for kids too!

ExplorOz Fuel Prices now show averages for each state/territory - updated daily.
