    I'm thinking of doing a Daylesford overnight trip and wondering if anybody knows of any charging points etc. what are my options?

    I'll be leaving from Melbourne SC in Richmond which is about 118km's, I don't expect to do anymore than 160km's whilst over the 2 days so if I managed to get 15 hours on a 10amp (150km's added back in overnight from 9pm - 12pm) then I'd expect to get back in to Melbourne SC with about 90km's left.... I'm in 70 and around town I get 300+ out of a 80% charge.

    Nothing showing up on Plugshare or Next Charge other than Bendigo. I would charge to 100% before leaving and try to park near a power point wherever you stay overnight. Otherwise maybe a friendly person/business could give you access to a power point overnight for a few bucks.

    I think one of the places we'd stay at would allow us to plug in over night to an outside power point (10AMP). I assume 15 hours will net me about 150km's?

    I've stayed at Pepper's in Hepburn Springs and was able to arrange to plug in (using an extenstion cord) to a 10A powerpoint in their tool shed just behind the carpark. So they're at least familiar with the concept, I'd email ahead to arrange it if you were considering it though.
