    Supercharger - Macquarie Park, NSW

    There’s been a pallet of something delivered to the site today. 10 x something. Aren’t we expecting two new stalls?

    Supercharger - Macquarie Park, NSW

    I took this photo just now. I’m excited. It’s a great location with easy access in and out. The vehicle access is much easier than Broadway. There’s direct foot access to the best bit of the shops. The whole valet area is usually quiet, which makes it ideal. Plenty of room for 10 bays here. As...

    Supercharger - Berry, NSW

    Yes, the Berry Supercharger is open! Six stands at the Silos Estate on the Princes Highway! Apparently the official opening date is yet to be advised, but it’s definitely operating. Sorry I don’t have a photo.

    Gigafactory Opening Event- Lottery

    I've heard of at least ten Aussies going to the opening on Friday. I didn't win a ticket, but I'm going as a guest with someone. Totally excited! Can't wait. The short notice makes it a bit hectic to get to Nevada, but it's so exciting!

    Spotted in Sydney. I think this one's a new spot. I'm always glad to drive behind a Tesla (no exhaust fumes)!

    Dinner for Matt (MDK) new Nullabor Conqueror (Perth to Bne trip)

    Hi Richard, so far there are 8 people for dinner tomorrow night in Sydney. I sent some messages in case people didn't read these posts in time. It should be a great evening. I'm going to ask Matt what it's like to have just driven 4,000km but have 6,000km left to complete the trip!! If anyone...

    Perth to Brisbane

    Awesome! We'll need to organise some kind of meetup in Sydney as you pass through! It will be great to see a WA plated Tesla in NSW.

    Invite to Model 3 Unveiling ...

    Hey I'm planning to win a ticket too. When I received the email, there was only a 21 hour window to apply I think. I'm hoping to see the golden ticket email on Thursday or Friday AEDT. If anyone in Aus/NZ gets a ticket, please post the news here!

    Driving through Water

    Justin, I occasionally drive through water (creek crossing). I got the air suspension option because it goes up a bit higher than standard suspension. But I think it only puts the clearance up to around 16cm, given the style of the car. I don't know exactly how much water I've been through, but...

    7.1 in Australia

    Hi everyone, I just got an update from 7.1 (2.9.154) to (2.11.54). It took 30 min. It gives all the release notes for Summon Beta, but at the top it says: " Summon is not yet available in Australia due to regulatory restrictions ". Indeed, the Summon option is not available in settings. The...

    Spotted in Australia and New Zealand

    Yep, well spotted! Ouch. I wonder if its possible to repair scrapes on those 21" rims when they get that bad. On a Model S90 too. I'm glad to have 19" wheels. They don't get curb rash or punctures as easily as the 21" wheels in my experience.

    Titanium Model S spotted in Concord, Sydney! Plate is DAH 83Q.

    Can the Model S read texts from my phone?

    I just hold the button on my iPhone and say 'read the text message to me'. It reads the message through the car speakers via Bluetooth. I guess by touching my phone I could get a fine, but it hasn't happened yet. I don't need to look at the phone. It's pretty easy to find the button by touch. Of...

    Australian Supercharger Rally SYD-MEL MEL-SYD

    Mike, it will be good to meet you! I'm driving to Gundagai then peeling off due to a prior commitment. I'm going to hand the baton (so to speak) to a Melbourne owner who's driving back to Melbourne. I don't think we need to worry about congestion. It's possible to drive between the Goulburn and...

    White vs Pearl White

    Solid white and pearl white photographed side-by-side Hi Colina, I pondered the same question before getting my solid white Model S. I'm very happy with my choice. I took photos of solid white and pearl white next to each other, at the Sydney meet up in February, posted here: The Colour of...

    Tesla in Australia

    Thanks TesAus. In the article, Heath says that the second Sydney showroom (Martin Place) will be open by the end of the year! That's quite soon. It would be a great place to do some Christmas shopping.

    Now, to convince body corporate

    Here's my experience of installing the standard high power wall connector (aka HPWC) in my garage in Sydney. This may help other people. I own my apartment in a block of 8 (like townhouses). I had no trouble in getting permission to install a wall connector. Tesla has a list of suggested...

    Melbourne-Sydney electric bus Australia and New Zealand

    A couple of media reports are out now. Apparently the Brighsun electric bus drove from Melbourne to Sydney, and there's a video about it. Exciting stuff, but not much detail as yet. http://www.autoblog.com/2015/11/06/brighsun-launches-electric-bus-australia-600-mile/...

    Channel 7 News Story Here's a link to the news story that Dborn is referring to. It was on Sydney's Channel 7 news this evening: Driverless-cars-on-sydney-roads ----------------- I'm having trouble pasting this link. Hope it works![/COLOR]

    7.0 in Australia

    I got v7.0 (2.7.77) this morning and it's amazing. Feels like driving the future. It worked really well on a regional road, on the freeway and tollways. I haven't had a chance to drive it much in the city yet. It's so amazing to have the car drive for you, and starts to feel quite normal. You...

    Tesla in Australia

    Re Tesla in Brisbane: James told me yesterday that at this stage it's just him and a car in Brisbane. But I'm guessing it's only a matter of time until a showroom and service centre open in Queensland. I predict Tesla will take off in Brisbane, like it has in Sydney and Melbourne!

    7.0 in Australia

    I don't think it matters whether you're on 3G or wifi. At least one Sydney person got v7 over 3G last night. I'm waiting with anticipation. Youtube vids of v7 look pretty cool. By the way, my latest fave video is Bjorn Nyland's best shots of 2014. Check out drifting up to a supercharger in snow...

    What happens to mytesla.com after delivery?

    Also, you can see if someone ordered a Tesla using your referral code. It's worth having a look! The website is also where you can read general software release notes, and news bulletins from Tesla. For instance there's a new one 2 days ago about Tesla All Wheel Drive (Dual Motor) Power and...

    Supercharger - Goulburn NSW

    Great lunch - it was good to meet other owners out for a Saturday drive. Of course the Supercharger worked as planned. By the way, it's at the visitor's information centre, so staff there can tell you about sightseeing in the area.

    P85D Arrived in Brisbane - Sad News

    So sorry to hear that! I don't have any experience with this, but I'm sure Tesla will resolve it as soon as possible. It might take a couple of days to get a new wheel fitted, depending on whether they have a 21" grey wheel handy. Presumably it was a rim scratch in transit. Condolences on the delay!

    The odd stuff - as noticed by us Aussies

    I don't think Siri can control the car at all (but it would be cool if this were possible). But you can say "read me the last email from David Smith" or "send a text message to Sarah Wong saying I'll be there in 20 minutes" or "read me the text message". And of course navigation and music...

    New planned superchargers?

    I heard that in the future there'll be one on the south coast of NSW, one near the NSW ski fields and one at another location near Sydney. I'm guessing north of Sydney. I think Canberra's a bit of a way off yet (not 2015). Sorry Canberra, but you would have superchargers to the north (Goulburn...

    Supercharger - Wodonga VIC

    I haven't heard of any liquid cooled cables in Australia yet. But today I did hear that Wodonga is getting very close to completion! As soon as it goes live, we will be able to see it on the Nav maps and on http://www.teslamotors.com/en_AU/supercharger Bring it on!

    I used the Goulburn Supercharger today!! It's now open for charging. Plenty of space. Some interested passers-by asked questions about the car. 'Jimat' from this forum stopped by as well. I did some shopping and had lunch at The Roses café nearby. The charge rate is the same as you'd get at the...

    Supercharger - Wodonga VIC

    The Superchargers between Sydney and Melbourne are under construction and due to open by the end of the year. I doubt there'll be enough open by 7 Oct to drive Syd-Melb in one day unfortunately. But you should be able to do it by the end of the year.

    Looking for feedback from Australian owners, particularly in Perth

    I've had my S85 for 6 months and 11,000kms. I've been almost 100% happy with it. You definitely want the tech stuff. I do have air suspension and use it on steep driveways. You might be OK without it, as Dborn says. Rear wheel drive is fine. I don't think a D would be necessary for me...
