Someone would have to tell me how that would work..
The logical spot would seem to be on the Princes Highway(Raglan Parade), at the Homemakers Centre(East Warrnambool), opposite Bunnings, across the road from the Flying Horse Inn & Brewery, & near a 24 hour BP & Macca's. Toilets & Subway nearby.
I too have attempted, early in the piece, to get the Centre management & Tesla together. They say 'you can lead a horse to water' - getting him to drink is another thing ! Who knows, Brewster, what's going on behind the scenes ? And the other two local Tesla owners are conspicuous by their silence, just watching on (?) !I agree wpapua! I did send in a request for that area not long after I got my Tesla. I frequent that area a lot when I visit Warrnambool (would be ideal for me anyway). I've never seen the huge parking lot anywhere near half full when I have visited.
Hi MacRocket, Given that Superchargers are for travellers (those passing through, eg, off the Great Ocean Road, or heading for Portland or Mt Gambier), and not for 'locals', just off the highway seems most appropriate - to me. If right in town, they would almost certainly be 'ICE'd' a lot of the time, being used for everyday parking by anyone with an internal combustion engined vehicle ! And not so easy to find, nestled in behind the shops. My two bob's worth !Hi Everyone,
I'm a Warrnamboolian, just new to this though, only had the MS for a month.
It would be really great to have the new Warrnambool supercharger right in town. There are four large carparks each side of the main street (Liebig St). They are never full and are close to everything worth seeing and doing in Warrnambool.
I would hope there is enough power in one of them for a supercharger.
This location has everything:-
1. Close to 30 cafe's and Restrauants
3. Beach and other nice walks and bike trails.
4. The western districts best kids playground.
5 Heaps of good places to stay, if you are staying you can check in and walk back to get your car off charge.
6 Library, Theatre, Museums, supermarkets,PO etc
7 Flagstaff hill Maritime village.
8 Cannon Hill.
9. The CBD is currently undergoing a multi million dollar upgrade
I will follow up by checking with Council if they know of the preferred location, hopefully they have already picked a good spot.
Well done, MacRocket ! Great news, & good work. Will 2 stalls be sufficient ?View attachment 253442 Hi Everyone,
I have spoken to two people at council and the Supercharger is to be installed in the upgraded main street on the
corner of Liebig and Lava Streets. This is very close to the highway and close to everything else, all night food outlets etc.
It appears to be one parallel and one nose in park (two chargers). This is the prime spot in the town, Tesla have done very well, talk about a real estate grab. The big news is that it should be open in a month from now.
I am very relieved it's going where it is as east and west Warrnambool are rough areas and pretty well dead after normal business hours.
I remember charging at the big Banana in Coffs Harbour in the dark at a big shed with nothing open nearby and no toilets that I could see. This is a bit boring I think, so having lots of things to do near a charging station (like in Warrnambool) makes it a bit more interesting for travelers and tourists I think.

to tell me a supercharger was going in at Lorne and Warrnambool soon to enable the great ocean road drive.
