    Supercharger - Albany, WA

    I missed this one for quite a while... Albany council meeting of September 2021 - records the fact that the CEO & Mayor signed an agreement to lease land in the "CBD Carpark" (I assume this is the one right next to the council offices and the Visitor Information Centre) for a 3-bay...

    Supercharger - Griffith, NSW

    Looks like Tesla is planning one in Griffith - 6 stalls! Spotted by @MarcoRP - Site is currently being negotiated with council - Tesla prefers one location but council agenda recommends support of one of the other alternatives, which is the Visitor Information Centre - probably a good sign as...

    Showroom - Mount Gravatt, Qld

    Tesla has acquired the old Southside Toyota site in Mount Gravatt, South-East Brisbane. 1922 Logan Road, Upper Mount Gravatt Next to a Coles and the big Westfield nearby. Alterations to a Tesla showroom have begun. Per Nathan on TOA. Close to the Pacific Motorway and has a massive forecourt...

    Purchase Tasks - do these need to be done immediately?

    Hey everyone, ordered a Model Y on Friday and it’s prompting me to complete the purchase tasks. I was thinking of putting a personalised plate on the car but need to organise it - meaning I can’t complete the registration section. If I delay these tasks will it effect my order? or am I...

    Supercharger - Brisbane (Indooroopilly), Qld

    Second attempt at this thread (the now closed Toombul thread was originally called this). But Nathan M has posted this photo on the ToA FB forum. In Indooroopilly Centre on P1 between Coles entrance and carpark exit. Three boxes which might mean a 9 stall V3?

    Supercharger - Cann River, Vic

    Another new find for today! Information is very limited - just this page on the East Gippsland Shire Council website: https://www.eastgippsland.vic.gov.au/public-notices/licence-of-land-on-ward-street-cann-river-area-for-ev-charging-stations I scoured their Facebook post history as well as...

    Supercharger - Hay, NSW

    A new Supercharger may be coming soon to Hay, NSW. I recently came across the Hay Shire Council minutes from April 26th, in which they discussed a Supercharger installation in the Caledonian car park (72 Lachlan St).
  8. M

    Supercharger - Margaret River, WA

    New 3 stall V3 reported as under construction at Margaret River in South West WA. About 110km from the existing Eaton site. And 270km from Perth which would enable larger battery cars to skip Eaton altogether.

    What to expect taking delivery of your Model 3

    With the impending arrival in Port Kembla of the first boat in 2022, I thought that I would summarise my delivery experience in November 2021 in case it’s helpful in knowing what to expect and the steps in the process. Your experience will differ (e.g. they won’t be telling you that “they all...

    Supercharger - Tailem Bend, SA

    Here's a super surprise one from Tesla! 6-stall V3 supercharger being installed just outside Tailem Bend. I was a bit confused, it looked like it was at a racetrack in the middle of nowhere, but there is all the regular stuff there like a service station, Hungry Jacks, Wok in a Box etc :)...
  11. Chuq

    Supercharger - Lancelin, WA

    Shire of Gingin has unanimously voted to support a lease to Tesla for a supercharger station at Lancelin (125 km north of Perth)...
  12. M

    Supercharger - Yass, NSW

    Yass Council has supported a Tesla site https://www.yassvalley.nsw.gov.au/our-council/news/article/1322 Park and Ride seems to refer to a council carpark on Lead St, which is only a block away from the NRMA site and the main cluster of shops on Comur St. Looks like 6 V3s propsed At about...

    Supercharger - Kirrawee, NSW

    Supercharger under construction as confirmed by Tippo from TOCA: South Village (Kirrawee) 580 Princes Hwy, Kirrawee NSW 2232 Someone who is nearby can go and get photos :)

    Supercharger - Taree, NSW

    Tesla is proposing a 6-bay supercharger site in Taree. They've been negotiating with council for a location. News story (paywalled for me): MidCoast Council considers Tesla "supercharger station" for Taree It will be discussed at council meeting today...

    Thanks @moemoke! From thread: Superchargers in Australia

    RVG trade in and tyre condition

    I'm up for an RVG and Tesla are saying that my (roadworthy with a few mm to spare) tyres must be replaced at my cost, and have quoted 150% retail to do it after returning the car. Has anyone had any dealings with the " damage and excessive wear and use based on Tesla’s standards for normal use"...

    New Showroom coming to Sutherland Shire?

    Supercharger - Devonport, Tas

    As mentioned in TOCA's April member update: Obviously Devonport was selected because it is the gateway into the state for Tesla owners bringing their car across on the ferry... not because of it's thriving Tesla population :) Precise location isn't public yet, but I couldn't go past the...

    Supercharger - Colac, Vic

    Many thanks to @Chenkers who found this one - shared originally in this thread: Superchargers in Australia Colac Plaza 144-158 Bromfield St Colac Vic 3250

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    https://www.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/media-centre/electric-vehicle-charging-stations-for-blaxland I still find it weird that this this location has obviously been planned for a while but it didn't make it into Tesla's 2021 map! This location has now been added to supercharge.info.
  24. M

    Supercharger - Brisbane 2 (Toombul), Qld

    As a Q1 2021 opening, though worth adding a Brisbane (Indooroopilly) thread as the site should be set, and possibly beginning to start construction. Pin is in the middle of the Audi dealership which is likely. The Westfield just to the south would be a more likely site. Maybe a local could do...
  25. M

    Supercharger - Geelong, Vic

    As a Q1 2021 opening, though worth adding a Geelong thread as the site should be set, and possibly beginning to start construction. Pin on the Tesla site is shown to the SE close to the M1 in Highton, possibly near the Queen's Park Golf course. Spots close to that that might make sense would...

    Ultimate EV Road Trip - Circumnavigating North America

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    Hi guys After a few near misses with skippies late at night recently I'm considering a light bar for the model 3 for under the front bumper lip. The high beam I think is great for distance, but I'm looking for something to illuminate the roadsides - and the fog lights are helpful, but not...

    Gold Coast Sales and Service Centre.

    Tesla just got the keys to their new Gold Coast sales and service centre located at Southport on the Gold Coast. It is the former Gold Coast BMW/Mini site. Superchargers are expected but it’s not confirmed if they will be for public use. (Probably will be). The location is expected to be...

    Supercharger - Williams (WA)

    It looks like Western Australia's Eaton Supercharger is going to lose its coveted most isolated Supercharger in the world honor when Tesla installs a supercharger station at Williams Woolshed early next year.

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    No location confirmed yet, but @jamesgo appeared to have a bit of an insight, going by his comment from the Camberwell thread: Notably on Tesla's map, the marker is not over the generic place name, but the nearby highway intersection. Perhaps the Karingal Hub would be a good place to start...

    Supercharger - Camberwell, Vic

    Thanks to Mark G on the TOCA Facebook group! At Camberwell Place Shopping Centre. Looks like 5 stalls, bases only at the moment. Will post pics when I get the OK. Note - this is yet another site that Tesla would have known was going ahead before the end of last year, yet wasn't added to the...
