    Tesla eyes off new site for Northern Rivers expansion

    An unexpected location! Not that far south from the Knockrow location (58 km), but it might be more preferable for some since it is on the highway. It's 230 km south of Brisbane.

    I'm not sure if any Tesla owners are in the area but it may pay to attend the community meeting on July 7 if you would like to have your voice heard!

    (Edit: Upon adding the address to supercharge.info I found the museum is technically Woodburn, but both the café and rest area right next door are “New Italy” – so I’ll leave the name as that, for now)

    Would be great to have some redundancy along this route. There aren't any NRMA chargers this far north yet..

    It would be interesting to see if this could be open for the Xmas travel season.... they haven;t started construction...

    Between Knockrow and Coffs Harbour, there is a single NRMA charger in Grafton... that may get busy in the holiday travel season..

    We can make it Knockrow to Coffs in a Model 3 SR+, I just like to have a contingency.

    Yes, those ChargeFox locations are listed as under construction.....

    Moonee Beach is close to Coffs....

    This is just our first Xmas road trip Sunshine Coast to Sydney, I can see that there will be a lot more charging options in 6-12 months,,,
