THE Victorian Government has launched the first interactive app to help Victorians get out and explore our state forests.
The More to Explore app encourages users to enjoy state forests through an interactive map.
The Forest Fire Management Victoria app has been designed to help users navigate when out in the forest to find trails and sites that suit their interests.
The app provides real-time information, making it quicker and easier to explore and enjoy the great outdoors with the most up to date details.
The app allows you to plan your visit before even leaving the house, using the search function to find the ideal forest site or trail.
If visiting areas likely to be out of mobile phone range or with limited mobile reception – explorers can download maps onto a mobile phone, to enable offline navigation and location on the map using the phone’s GPS function.
To download the app, head to iTunes. The Android version of the app is planned for release in Google Play in 2018.
