    I'm told that it's coming in Q4 this year, at the carpark near the marker on Tesla's map (East of Arthur St)

    I've been past there twice in the last couple of weeks. ~11am on a Monday and ~1pm on a Thursday and in both cases the carpark was bursting at the seams with cars, despite being paid-parking (first hour free, I think) so I hope the supercharger bays don't get ICEd on a regular basis...

    Thought I'd give this post a bump - if only to highlight that not much happens Tesla-wise in WA :(

    Argh!! That's the second Supercharger thread in this forum that has been bumped in the past week by someone saying "nothing has happened" :p

    That's because nothing has happened, other than I have a shiny new MX and no official Tesla presence (ie no service centre or supercharger or 3).in Perth/Western Australia.

    There are almost 100 Teslas known in WA but we're still dealing with our nearest service centre in Melbourne - 3400kms away :(

    That's fair enough, there are a few other threads mentioning this:

    I direct messaged Jon McNeil through tmc last weekend about this and he was kind enough to write back within 24hrs. Very impressed. Thanks Jon

    He said Bunbury supercharger by end of this quarter. That's end of September by my calcs but suspect he might have his quarters mixed up.

    Tesla friend was in Bunbury this week and visited proposed sites but no activity.

    Tesla quoted tripling superchargers. We'd love 3 in Western Australia but settle for one ATM

    C'MON TESLA. Extract a digit.

    As a betting person I would say end of September is at even money, to make that possible a sled set up is holding steady at odds on, and if the Supercharger is installed at Bunbury's busiest car park expect local residents rage to be starting as a hot favourite.
    I also have some late mail that all WA owners will be issued with grey raincoats, beanies and dark glasses to blend in while charging across the road from Adultshop.

    Is Eaton the new location as opposed to Bunbury town centre?

    Work commenced yesterday on a six stall supercharger at Eaton Fair Shopping centre in Eaton, 10km north of Bunbury.

    Awesome!

    A much better spot than where we were originally told it was going (Bunbury CBD)

    24 hour facilities, only 1km from the Forrest Highway and not far from the South Western Highway

    Awesome! Just need my Model 3 now to plug into it.
    Hopefully by that time in 2019, WA will have at least 3 supercharger stations.

    I saw @reecho's post on FB then immediately came here :)

    Could an admin merge this thread with Supercharger -Bunbury (WA) ? (or vice versa, seems like Eaton is the best name)

    A bit of Google Maps stalking gives me this as the exact location: -33.319585, 115.717660

    1 Council Dr
    Eaton WA 6232

    Spot on Chuq.
    I put a pin on PlugShare a few hours ago and messaged them to change the outlets to Tesla supercharger instead of standard plugs.

    I'm not sure what Tesla / PlugShare's policy is. They may end up deleting my listing and substitute it for their own.

    I think they do a data import from Tesla for superchargers and destination chargers - not until they are live though.

    I've emailed @BlueShift about this one also :)

    Cool.
    I'm surprised it's not on supercharge.info yet

    Most of us only found out about it when this thread appeared less than 4 hours ago. Blueshift lives in the US where it is currently 5am :)
