FRC Web Directory Updates

The Upgraded FRC Web Directory

Last week we advised of updates we were making to the free web directory.  We are happy to advise that the upgrade has now been completed and the web directory can now be accessess via your normal web browser (ie chrome, firefox, edge, safari etc)

Users will notice a new theme to each of the listings and a quicker user experience, which we are still working on to try and make it even more responsive.

The great news is that the search bar is now back in action.  You can now drill down into specific areas and nominate selected features you require at a campsite or RV business.

The upgrade went well, and we were offline shorter than expected.  There have been a few small bugs earlier on, but we think we have ironed most of these out so we would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding, and welcome you to jump back online and check out your next camping spot.

You can access it direct via the link


How to use the Search Bar
For those looking for a refresher on how to use the search bar, head on over to our youtube video.


If you prefer to use your smartphone or tablets, don’t forget we still have the free version of the app available in both Android or iOS versions.

How to Reset Your Member Password

Resetting Your Member Password

With the website upgrade, we also updated our navigation menu.  There are now many more options available in the top menu to navigate your way around the site.  One of the new links is the Reset Password link.

One of the more common requests we have is how to reset passwords, so we have made a quick guide on how to reset them and which links to use.  

Read on below to find out more.

Latest Camping Products

Shop Best Sellers

We have been giving the online shop a little spruce up whilst working on the web directory.  The shop is faster and we are modifying the look and feel gradually.

If you haven't yet, check out the SHOP'S BEST SELLERS.  These are the products that our members simply love.

Camping Caravan Mats

These are a best seller in the online store.  Perfect for your next camping/caravan trip.  Set them up around the camping table, or under the awnings.  Many members put synthetic grass on top to keep their feet dry and clean. If there is rain around, or you are on dirt or sand, these are the perfect solution.


Awning Hooks

RV & Caravan Awning Hooks

Awning Hooks provide extra hanging space under your awning.

The hooks slide easily into the sail track groove of most caravan/RV awnings.

Can be used to hang:
* coat hangers
* torches
* strip lighting


Door Latch Extender

RV & Caravan Door Latch Extender

This Door Latch extension solves a common problem in many caravans that are unable to open their windows when the door is also open.
The standard configuration in many caravans means that the window of the main living area is in close proximity to the door frame.


Shoo Away

Shoo Away Fly Repeller

Trying to relax at your favorite time of day with a drink or nibbles can be ruined by constant annoyance by flies buzzing around landing on your food or in your drink. The Shoo Away fixed that problem.


Quokka Folding Fire Pit & BBQ

Another best seller, the foldeing fire pit and bbq in one.  Made of sturdy Stainless Steel, these are a great little bit of camping kit. These can be shipped all over Australia
