A few years ago, it wasn’t easy to find public toilets, petrol stations, supermarkets, free wifi, tips and campsites when travelling in New Zealand or Australia. In 2011, CamperMate’s founder Adam decided to do something about it.
During his university holidays Adam decided to drive a 50cc scooter the length of New Zealand , collecting GPS coordinates in all the hard to find places.
With this data, and working with councils and government, he compiled a huge database of 6000 facilities. With the help of two friends (Bruce and Deb) they launched a free iPhone/Android app called CamperMate.
