Frog and Toad is now Travel Around Australia


The original site - Frog & Toad served millions of visitors per month 

After a quiet launch on Friday the 17th of December 2010. Frog and Toad was finally retired from active duty.

With the massive changes in the way travel information, is presented and used the only real way forward was to re-invent. So how do you go about re-inventing over 5000 individual pages of travel information? The answer is; slowly.

While we recognised that a lot of the information was out of date, we also understood that to completely re-write everything would be a massive undertaking and quite out of the reach of the available resources. So we decided that we would simply replicate (mostly) the current site and bring it under the new banner and design as phase one. Yay! That part is done.

Now here's where it gets interesting. In order for this information to remain up-to-date and relevant it had to be able to collect suggestions and local articles. So, that's where this whole thing is heading. Our aim is to provide the facility for people to provide a more personal touch by submitting their own articles and stories.

Another idea is to create an award for local businesses that excel in service to visitors where travelers' own opinions are the basis of the award.

So for now, that's enough from me. Please use the "Feedback" tab to tell us what you think and safe travels from us.
