    Hema 4WD update for ios

    My Hema 4wd app updated overnight, they have added 8 new Vic High Country maps, I wonder how the new maps compare to the Rooftop map series? I’m glad to see they are still keeping Hema 4wd up to date even if they seem to have lost their way with 4x4 Explorer Have a great Easter everyone Aaron

    Hi, Thinking of camping for a week down in the NSW snowies early Jan 2017/ One spot that looked nice was at Three mile dam. Can anyone confirm if the water is usually freezing cold from snow melt, and if not is it full of weed so not nice to swim in? Apart from Keebles Hut and Tom Groggin, any...
