    this is from the Tesla website and came up in a Tesla RSS feed I still follow. It is not showing on the main maps, can anyone confirm it shows in a car or better yet go past.

    Looks similar to Euroa so possibly a skid.

    Find Us | Tesla For some reason this does not centre correct but when I find and select the red marker I get the info below

    Holy guacamole, Batman! Has anyone confirmed this? I found myself at the Big Banana late last month, November, and all I saw were parking areas. Lots of parking areas with nothing else.

    Given it is a sled it could have been set up in a day or two - no weeks of construction pre-warning!

    Well hidden at the top of the hill. I guess nobody goes up there. Interested to see some photos and know what the building is.

    If there is a path directly from there to the cafe in the big banana then it's a good spot - unlikely to be ICEd

    IMG_3955.JPG The building is disused but presumably had sufficient power supply for a single supercharger. The area is marked on the park map as 'Lookout'.

    It is up a very steep hill. But, the view will be quite spectacular.

    Maybe need to be careful with limited regen if anyone charges close to 100%?

    I checked thoroughly and can't see it on the "in-car" maps just yet.

    I'm staying at Wooli beach (destination charger), no need whatsoever to go to Coffs. But since I've never supercharged and the interest of my fellow Tesla owners. Ill take the drive and report.
