    Lithgow's 2 stalls are apparently now open. (Not updated on Plugshare or NRMA's map yet)

    Interesting that it's a 2 stall - very rare for NRMA sites.

    An NRMA two-stall is now at 'The Farm'. Looks close to being live.

    No - just a driveby by me yesterday evening. The pedestals are backing onto fence visible from Ewingsdale Road.

    Does anyone know if Qld'ers (members of RACQ) will be able to use these chargers under a reciprocal arrangement with NRMA? I've asked both organisations but nobody seems to know anything. I know they're free now, but that won't last forever..

    Bega is very close, unit is switched on but has tags saying "powering up, check back soon" on the cables. 20190801_125020.jpg
    It is not as I thought in the carpark near the Woolworths mall but up the other end of Gipps St in the carpark across from Club Bega. So a bit more of a walk to the main street.

    I notice Bega is showing as live on the NRMA map!

    (And Lithgow is still showing as "coming soon" despite having gone active a few weeks ago!)

    Great! Driving to Bega tomorrow, will give it a whirl. Still showing as "coming soon" on Plugshare though.

    I did have a look at Plugshare too for a second opinion, but with no info there, I figured I'd leave it for someone on-the-ground to confirm!

    That reminds me, yesterday I saw a Vaguebook photo of an NRMA station (someone put the photo up, didn't say where it was and didn't reply to any comments asking where it was). Maybe it was Bega?

    I put up a photo of Bega a few posts back. Not sure if that was it. Have messaged NRMA on Plugshare re its status.

    NRMA confirm they had the official opening today and that the Bega charger is online. Now, we need something further down the Princes Highway for the trip to Melbourne. Cann River would be good, also the Lakes Entrance and Traralgon Superchargers...
