    I found a link to this map on another forum:
    Tesla Superchargers Map: Where you can charge in Australia | finder.com.au

    It appears to combine the official Tesla supercharger/destination charger locations, but also includes a dark grey area which indicates coverage using the available chargers.

    It's a very interest map, but would infinitely more useful if you could toggle on/off certain types of charger, and also adjust the distance based on the model and battery size.

    I have to wonder about the sanity of travelling to some of the dark grey areas using the superchargers shown. Once you arrive at the destination, you typically don't want to stop and abandon your car there. For example, you could get to Mallacoota, perhaps via the Alberton destination supercharger (377km) however unless you can recharge at Mallacoota the return trip back to Alberton would be 754km.

    Agree with that - it should show "return trip" range instead!

    Return trip does make sense however the reverse thinking could also be applied in that the grey shaded area represents the furthest point away from a charging facility that you could live or 'visit'. Meaning that that grey shaded area is the limit of your destination where presumably you could charge at a trickle when you arrive.

    Or even better it could have 2 colours ... dark grey for "return range" and light grey for "stranded range".
