    Not sure if it is fine to post this here, but in case anybody was wondering, the recent Tesla promo video for the OneBillionMiles campaign was filmed along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Specifically the segment of road crossing the George River, just outside the town of Lorne, if you are driving westwards along the GOR.

    And just some general drone footage of parts of the road, gives you an idea what it looks like when it is sunny (amazing) and not overcast like last week when Tesla filmed their video:

    When the video ended with ONE BILLION MILES, all I could think of was:

    and all I could think of was "why are they driving on the wrong side of the road?" Good to know it was filmed in Australia.

    Great post! And I suppose it had to be filmed in AU due to FAA policy regarding drones ("Not in my backyard, you don't!")

    and all I could think was, why did Elon shave his head?

    it took about 3 years to clock up 1 billion miles

    so how long before 2 billion is reached ? less than 18 months

    Its a great drivers road except in the summer holiday season when it's bumper to bumper traffic and you are bound to be stuck behind a slow caravan. Fantastic the rest of the year though.
