WWOOF Australia Office
Hi Lisa and Brad,
Thanks for your comments, you do make a good point, thanks, we will certainly mull this over before we make any decisions.
Potential WWOOFers do look at the map to see if there are hosts in the areas they want to visit so it is definitely a good selling point for WWOOFers. There are still only 514 Hosts on the map out of 1440 Hosts, so we still have many hosts yet to set their locations.
We generally recommend Hosts only put their nearest Town as their location, this protects their privacy and still lets WWOOFers know basically where they are, and if they do a search for nearby Hosts they will still turn up in the search results.
