Meet Charlie, an executive for a multinational company with two kids and a dog. He loves fine dining but enjoys horseback riding with his kids on weekends. He was recently relocated to Melbourne on a new assignment from Brisbane. Becuase he was needed at his new job on short notice, he left his family behind in Brisbane and has been looking for a place to live. For now, he's living in a hotel room provided by his company - but has two weeks to find a new place to live. He misses his family terribly, and is eager to settle down to his new life in Melbourne with his entire family.

Encounter and photograph our amazing wildlife! Explore and learn about our country! All while contributing to open data, getting exercise and having fun!

 

We live in a beautiful country; rich with wildlife, parks and landmarks. Unfortunately, very few of us are aware of what can be found around us. This year for Govhack 2016, team YAMM have been working on something that we believe will give people a way to truly connect with their surroundings.

Get Parked

Get parked is an informative, easy to use interface that connects everyday individuals to the amazing experiences and getaways right in their backyard. Country Victoria has a vast number of parks and sites open to public use, however there is no easy way to find information on these sites and hence can be intimidating for those that are not bush savvy, to plan a bush/outdoor weekend outing.
