In New Zealand, Freedom camping is when you camp on public land that isn't a recognised camping ground .

You aren't allowed to camp wherever you like and if you camp in the wrong place, you could face a significant fine. Rules vary around the country and this website has information to help you know where you can freedom camp and how to camp responsibly.  

It’s important you have the right type of vehicle to enjoy freedom camping. You can only camp in some places if you are certified self-contained.
