Looks like all Australian superchargers built in the future will be V3! All of the currently under construction ones are - Toombul, Corio, East Devonport and now Colac.

In every case it's 3 stalls to a cabinet - not entirely clear why they're going in this direction. If anyone is able to get a photo of the electrical info sticker on the SC cabinet that may offer more of an insight.

Guess I better book in that CCS upgrade.
One thing I have noticed with the Chargefox and Evie high power CCS connectors and cables is that they are quite heavy. Not an issue for those with CCS sockets on their cars but the converter I got with the upgrade doesn't feel very secure with all that weight hanging off it. Would be good to have some way of supporting the cable.
Not sure if the V3 supercharger plug will be as heavy.

Teslas V3 superchargers have a liquid cooled charging cable that's actuually smaller diameter than the V2 charging cable. So hopefully you don't have too much issue with weight at the plug on a V3
