    Just went to have a look at Flagstaff Hill. No sign of anything (Supercharger or other charges).
    There isn’t even any sign of works being started.
    I haven’t managed to talk to council yet but will report back when I do.

    Re the Warrnambool City Council's Destination Charger on the NW corner of Liebig & Lava Streets - tried it today, and it is now functioning, after at least 6 months following installation during the street upgrade ! Good news for travellers - now for the promised Supercharger at Flagstaff Hill / Maritime Village ? Let's suggest we not hold our breath !

    Spoke to Ben Story at WCC. He has been council’s liaison person dealing with Tesla regarding the Warrnambool Supercharger to be installed at Flagstaff Hill.
    Council have agreed on this location but there has been a change of staff at Tesla and the new Man is not yet up to speed with things according to Ben. There is a bit of work to happen with power for this site but Ben doesn’t know if Tesla have applied to Powercor yet.
    Council are also being approached by other operators of charging systems. Wonder who that would be?
    Anyway it seems Tesla need to be hurried up. Would it be worth contacting them? Don’t want to lose our prime spot.

    My guess would be Fast Cities Australia. Maybe Chargefox.

    Tesla have surprised us again with an end-of-year burst!

    Note that this is a 2-stall so probably a sled, and they are probably still planning a permanent site at the previously speculcated location (Flagstaff Hill)

    Yes at last, it’s a sled and it’s located at the Flying Hourse Inn Warrnambool just on the way into town.

    Yikes! To be fair it doesn’t look like there is any signage. I doubt an ICE driver in Warrnambool would have run into those weird red and white things before.

    Always enjoy the irony and juxtaposition of a dinosaur juice outlet in the background of a supercharger location.

    Warrnambool Supercharger supplying moderate charging level at 73% state of charge. Seems a little bit of ICE education is required.

    It'd be cool to tow a SuperCharger sled all the way across the Nullarbor to Perth - especially if I could plug it in along the way :p

    Warrnambool Supercharger sure does have some power. Charging at 117kw now. Not bad.

    All EV car parks should be painted red or green like disabled car parks are blue, I truly think some people are oblivious to where they are parking.....Camry driver afterall.

    Hi WPapua, We saw you in Koroit yesterday (having towed 6 bikes to Warrnambool behind the X and got here a few days ago), we rode the rail trail and we're enjoying a coffee on the main street. Warrnambool and region is now so well set up with the council spaces (have used them three times already as better for the battery than the supercharger), plus a range of destination chargers and the supercharger for long trips. The only issue is those of us with trailers have to unhitch - such a shame the council didn't put the charging posts in the middle of the two bays (esp the northern one), rather than right at the rear.
