What makes our guidebook advertising work?
Our guides sell in their thousands and are available at all leading outdoor adventure stockists in Australia. Other stockists include book shops, tourist information centres and online book retailers. Unlike magazines, guidebooks are read and reread, year in, year out. We even have an online update service to extend the life of each guide.
Will I reach my intended audience?
We are currently working on a new range of walking guides to regional locations around Victoria. These guides will be priced at under $20. Our guides are regarded by many bushwalkers as indispensable sources of valuable information. Some of our guides (including the new Western Gorges) will have free downloadable GPS tracks for each described walk. We were the first publisher in the world to offer this service.
Who advertises in Open Spaces guides?
Equipment stockists; adventure guiding or travel companies; environmental organisations; bushwalking and rockclimbing clubs; guest houses, cafes, private and government land managers. We do not accept advertising from companies we feel would conflict with our and our readers ethical or environmental standards.
