Dear ExplorOz Reader,

Welcome to 2006 - and the start of another Year of the Outback. We hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and New Year and have returned to your usual routine with renewed energy. If not, and you can't wait for your next holiday, then you'll find ExplorOz is full of great travel ideas, tips and facts as well as the never-ending source of Forum entertainment.

What's in store in '06?

This year you can look forward to more destination content with an interactive Australia wide Place Name database streamlined to display additional information through all existing site areas; we'll also publish more Treks close to cities, along with adding search functions to enable people to look up treks based on needs such as suitability to caravans or trailers. February sees the launch of the official Auction for places on the Great Outback Clean-up and in the coming weeks Members will be given access to an exclusive ExplorOz Wine Club! So stay tuned - there's lots more to come in 2006 from the ExplorOz Team!

Forum Update

How fast do you want it? Recent changes (as of midnight 11/1/06) to the Forum Database have resulted in a very successful improvement to the performance of the entire site. We hope you all find this a great advantage to your satisfaction in using ExplorOz.com

We also welcome a new permanent Forum sponsor to the Thread View.

Fuel Prices

Compare the reports for State Averages you see on the news with the ExplorOz reports and you may seem some differences! The reason for this is that the data we use includes significant regional outlets, whereas the mainstream media reports contain mostly city and suburban outlets.

Trips and Gatherings

Feeling lonely? Need to hook up a convoy for your next trip? Members can use the Trips & Gathering system to list the trip they are planning and request others to join them. Visitors are welcome to attend these trips/events and who knows, you may just decide what a great thing Membership is and decide to join too!
