    Since I get down this way on occasion and it's slated for operation in the next 5 and a bit months thought we should have a thread to update on anything we spot.

    If the current map reference is accurate then the most likely location would seem to be a small carpark on the ocean side of the Great Ocean Road, just outside of the main part of town (as the actual address is a residence, possibly the closest google maps provides to that spot). Hopefully this is inconvenient enough to reduce the chance of ICE-ing if so, since Lorne in peak seasons is a parking nightmare..

    It would get busy in summer! But would be the most picturesque Supercharging location I can think of. That car park is a prime bit of real estate.

    No sign of any activity near the address on the map. Also looks somewhat less likely as a location in person than it did on Street View!

    Looking at the map the whole area could do with more destination chargers.

    Both Lorne and Clare Supercharger threads made sticky.

    Given the latest map shows this at Torquay and they still name it 'Great Ocean Road' perhaps we should call it that as well @meloccom?
