    With Ausgrid's cooperation with Jolt, they should just put a few chargers into this depot.

    Add in the Hornsby-ish charger Evie have on their planned map, plus Ourimbah (hypothetical) and Wallsend (exists but requires de-ICEing), it’ll work eventually.

    Is Penrith/Caddens Evie -> Lithgow NRMA -> Mudgee NRMA -> Scone NRMA potentially a viable way to the north of the state? Unlikely but I’ll take your advice on it. Not that I’d trust your LEAF’s air-cooled battery.

    It’d be nice if you could make it from Seven Hills Evie up the Putty Road to Pokolbin NRMA. But I assume that’s also kinda impossible.

    Both chargers now included in ABRP.

    Interestingly for a simple Sydney to Adelaide routing, going via Bendigo is still 20-40min quicker for SR+ and LR due to he faster charging.

    Obviously most would break up such a journey with an overnight somewhere which may change things

    NRMA Mittagong is currently out of service (PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You)- unfortunate timing considering it's the last fast charger before you hit the LGAs currently under interstate COVID travel restrictions (Picton is in Wollondilly Shire).

    A Model 3 LR could make it from Heatherbrae to Mittagong, but Goulburn seems like a stretch. The next best option seems to be Heatherbrae to the Berry Supercharger.

    The VIC advice for travelling in NSW has changed recently. A week ago, it was permitted to drive from one “green zone” in NSW to another via Sydney, and enter VIC without quarantine, provided that any stops in Sydney were essential (e.g. toilet stop, food stop, supercharging) and of minimal duration.

    But now you’re not even allowed to do that. You can’t even do a ‘virtual’ bypass Sydney via the M1/M7/M5, even if you don’t stop at all. That means any trip in NSW from north to south with the aim of getting to VIC has to go via Bathurst or Dubbo and bypass Sydney completely. A bit of a detour!

    The ACT allows transiting Sydney as long as you don't stop at all. However, in the SR+ we are going to have to make the same inland detour - I think probably via Mudgee and Bathurst.
