    Gramping season kicks off with Grandparents Day on 26th October 2014

    Aerogard invites you to join the Gramping craze

    1 October 2014: Aerogard is calling out to Australians to take part in the annual Gramping season, kicking off nationally on Grandparents Day, 26th October 2014 and continuing throughout the summer until 28th February 2015.

    Created by the Gramping Association in partnership with Turu.com.au in 2013, Gramping is the name given to the emerging trend of camping with parents, kids and grandparents. In its second year already, more than 1,500 families across Australia have registered their own Grampouts taking place at campsites and in backyards across the country.

    Accessible from Turu.com.au parks nationally, Gramping also allows grandparents to camp for free* on the weekend of 24th 26th October.

    Spokesperson for Aerogard Australia, Rowena Newman says: We encourage Australians to take this opportunity to embrace the warmer weather and create special memories with their families, away from the distractions of day-to-day life.

    Gramping is becoming more and more popular in Australia as its a great way to switch off, get back to nature and spend quality time with loved ones. We know the Australian outdoors can be a challenge with summer pests, so we recommend that you arm yourself with a Gramping toolkit that includes Aerogard mosquito spray to ensure you have the best possible time.

    General Manager of Turu.com.au, Robert Gallagher says: Last year was incredibly successful, and we anticipate even more people getting involved in Gramping this year.

    We provide almost 2,000 parks across the country, many of which are family, and even pet friendly, for camping or caravanning.

    Gramping was created in 2013 by the Gramping Association, in partnership with Turu.com.au, and is sponsored by Aerogard and Mortein.

    National Geographic Orion to undergo renovations

    18 August 2014: Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic has announced that National Geographic Orion will undergo renovations during dry dock this September. The renovations will be made to two public spaces: The Lounge (main) and the Observation Lounge, and are being redesigned to better serve the dynamic, learning-oriented community for guests and the staff aboard.

    Renovations include:

    · The Observation Lounge will undergo a complete refurbishment and layout change and will feature an intimate library, nautical chart table and a self-serve beverage station.

    · The current library will be removed from the Lounge, providing an additional 20 per cent of space that will enable seating for all guests and the expedition team at once.

    · The Lounge will feature a circle of truth in the centre (as on National Geographic Explorer), which will serve as the focal area for all presentations and recap discussions by the ships expedition team and experts.

    · A newly designed bar.

    · Updating of all furnishings and carpets in a modern, expedition style interior.

    · Upgrade of all audio and visual functions including large high definition flat screens and a contemporary audio system.

    The renovations will be completed by ICF Singapore, a world leader in interior ship design, and will be completed in time for the September 16, 2014 Camp Leakey: Faces in the Forest expedition.

    Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic launched the 102-guest National Geographic Orion in March 2014, previously the Orion. While she has retained all of her state-of-the-art comforts, the ship was equipped with a full roster of exploration tools including tandem kayaks, an innovative ROV (remotely operated vehicle reaching depths up to 1,000 feet), snorkelling gear for all guests, a dive master, scuba gear that can accommodate up to 24 divers at a time and a glass bottom boat.
