The Free Range Camping directory is now ready to go live. We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support while we have been getting the Directory ready. It has been a mammoth task not only designing the software but also collating the data. The directory will be released in stages.
Stage 1 will be released this weekend doing a slow release to the 12000 registered users so you will be receiving your username and password to the email address you are reading this email. This will be spread out over the next few weeks so we can ensure the server can withstand the load and iron out any bugs.
When you receive your email with your login details, go to the link in the email and click on the login link up the top and you will see where to put your details.
Stage 1 will contain a list of Rest Areas, Free Camps and Dump Points around Australia. Access to all these areas will be totally free to all registered users. As there are literally thousands of sites around Australia, our directory will take time to grow.
At this stage there are approximately 5,100 sites that will be made available, and we are adding to this daily.
Some sites have just the bare information available at this stage, however we have teams on the ground that are visiting sites daily and over time we will have comprehensive reviews, photos and details on as many of these sites as possible.
We will keep you updated on our progress as we go. Phase 2 will see a combination of Low Cost and Over $25 Sites added to the directory. As many of these sites are privately owned, site owners will be updating their details over a period of time.
This will also apply to our other categories such as Help Outs, House Sitting and Member Park Overs.
Our Business Directory is also currently being populated by individual businesses around Australia. As businesses list in the directory, their details will be seen, however, any discounts or offers they make will only be made available to Premium Members after our Membership Cards have been released in coming months.
In the meantime, and until such time the directory is fully populated, ALL areas will be made available FREE of charge as they come on line.
We hope you enjoy using our Directory, and we would welcome any feedback or improvements you can suggest, and please keep us informed if you find any discrepancies so that we can follow them up and correct the listing.
Please Note: The offline component of the directory will not be available or function until such time as all of the categories are fully populated and operational.
