    I've seen a good thread for Syd-Brisbane, but are there any fast (-ish) charging opportunities on the New England? The Newcastle SCharger can't come fast enough!!

    Port Macquarie supercharger was announced today, so at somepoint they'll have to fill the SYD-PMQ gap with something around Newcastle. Yes... hopefully sooner rather than later!

    Today? Thanks, Colina, I missed that. Won't be any good for my trip this weekend, I guess, but can't wait for a few Northside....

    To revive an old thread... the Quality Hotel Powerhouse Tamworth will have a destination charger going next week they said.

    I'm waiting for one in Orange. I go out there occasionally. Bit of a rigmarole using Hydro Majestic DC and UMC at motel.

    It would be appealing to stop at Orange and get some juice, okay, old joke but I wanted to squeeze that in.

    And speaking of that area, the council in the Dubbo area mentioned a couple of years back in one of their council meeting minutes that they would "try to attract a supercharger to the area". The fact that it is just under 200km from Bathurst, Given Bathurst is due this year (as @Mark E says), Dubbo is 200km from Bathurst, the council is enthusiastic, *and* it is at a junction of highways... my prediction is end of 2018.

    Future car charge station investigated

    Destination Chargers (either in a public area council car park at Dubbo, or a hotel) would be a great start. Bathurst to Dubbo (with some driving near Dubbo/at the zoo) round trip looks like it'd cut things a bit finer than I'd like, depending on temperature.

    Destination chargers at the zoo would be great. Hopefully eventually there will be a supercharger in town as well.

    I wrote to the zoo asking about any form of charging (10A, 3 phase, destination charger) but they never wrote back. Shame since the zoo has their own electric buggies and must have some charging infrastructure for them.
