    I'm sorry but you are wrong.

    If you type a name on the supercharger page and click search, you get destination chargers as well as Supercharger locations (all over the world)

    There were more than just the 2 in the image, I did not count them but 6 would not surprise me.
    The car park is multilevel, all floors have several rows of parking spaces.
    Some adjacent ground floor spaces in row 1 have been cordoned off with black plastic, behind that the new SuperChargers are being installed.
    All other spaces are unaffected and most are occupied by the cars of the shopping centre shoppers (I had to go up to level 2 before I found an empty space to park my car which reinforced by fear that the Tesla spaces will get ICED.
    This may be stating the obvious but all spaces in this multilevel structure are under cover of a concrete floor above (except perhaps the top level roof spaces but I did not go higher than level 2 so I don't know that for a fact).
    There is a pedestrian lift at the end of the car-park where the car-park meets the shopping area.

    Historically never, but they've also never supported public charging without the use of an adaptor. In case you missed the model 3 news, in EU and other 3 phase markets like Australia Tesla is adding CCS2 support to the car. In Australia we also don't have access to the browser in the car, so a Tesla supported navigation tool is all that we get.

    Umm ... Tesla has had the Chademo adaptor for years and has not shown these chargers on the map, although I believe the car will show locations you have charged at previously. It would be good if you could mark locations as public and share them with the fleet.

    Apparently these Superchargers could be operational as soon as next week.

    What I mean by all this, is that in the car’s map, you are only able to see Tesla Destination Chargers, Superchargers, and locations you charged at. I’m sure that Tesla knows there are way more out there, just that they can’t show them all.

    I for one sure aren’t going to complain about a Supercharger that ‘just comes out of nowhere’.

    This video posted by a Brisbane owner gives some more information on where the chargers are located. They are still not operational though.

    Next week looks like "the week". Had this in an email from management today:

    "Thank you for your enquiry in regards to the new Tesla Supercharging station located in the Kmart multilevel carpark, Ground floor.

    We are looking to have these operational by Monday 3 December and will be accessible 24hrs/7 days."

    Next Monday, it would appear?

    I just notified Tesla that the Maroochydore SC was not mentioned on their SC list.
