    Thanks to Jared Hirst on the TOCA FB group for this one!

    Tuggerah Super Centre, just off the Pacific Highway.

    Notably - not CCS2 :-/

    I've always said something was needed on the Central Coast; the Heatherbrae charger is the other side of Newcastle so doesn't help those on Sydney-Newcastle return trips. This one also lets larger range vehicles get to Tamworth from a 100% charge.

    Check out the dot on supercharge.info - I've guessed the location based on the photo - it looks like a rooftop car park.

    Wow! That's so awesome! This is the supercharger I've been wanting for so long, living in Newcastle and working frequently in Sydney, this is a game-changer for me.

    Are the chargers in the right spot in relation to the parking bays or do you use the charger in the next bay?

    They will have to change the parking bay stripes to match the pedestals. This is common for Supercharger installations because they generally allow a wider bay unless the pedestals are parallel to the bumper behind the curb.

    Seems strange they're putting in new ones now and they don't have the CCS plug.

    Agreed... said this regarding Bathurst, Dubbo, Ovens and Berry as well. They're just going to have to go and replace them all anyway :-/

    Probably just waiting on an approval from one of many authorities. It may only require the lines repainted but not to code until they are so fence stays up. Welcome to Australia.

    Lit up, but fenced off! That’s a new one! They probably did some testing but forgot to cut the power afterwards...

    Can confirm this is live and working! Just a note, Tesla nav leads you astray. You need to turn towards Bunnings, go all the way past to the last entrance on the left into the shopping complex then around the back of all the loading docks, then you’ll find the ramp to the roof at the end on the left. Up the ramp, can’t miss the chargers.

    Nice. 4 superchargers within 104kms. Our only supercharger in the state is 160kms from the capital city. Any guesses where? Der, Perth silly.
