Tesla’s promise of a ‘highway’ of superchargers connecting Australia’s eastern capital cities has taken a major step forward today.

Previously, the ultra fast-charging devices were only available to Tesla customers in Sydney and Melbourne, making it somewhat inconvenient for owners to venture away from the big cities.

Tesla announced that the NSW town of Goulburn would be the first location outside of Sydney or Melbourne to offer supercharger access, and the facility will be officially opened today.

By offering the service in Goulburn, Tesla owners can now confidently complete the Sydney to Canberra round trip; knowing a 20-30 minute fast-charge on one or each of the journeys is all that’s required to ensure the Tesla Model S (and later the Model X) completes the trip with plenty of range to spare.

From Tesla’s Sydney store in St Leonards to Goulburn is a distance of roughly 200km, and the additional distance to Canberra’s CBD is 90km.

However, should a Tesla owner decide to continue south along the Hume Highway, rather than take the Federal Highway to Canberra, a further 363km from Goulburn will bring them to Wodonga on the Murray River in Victoria.

Wodonga will also see its supercharging facilities officially opened today, meaning Sydney to Melbourne travel is now possible using only superchargers for support (verses other charging means).

Furthermore, a pair of temporary superchargers is currently in operation at the Euroa service centre on the Hume Highway in Victoria.

Depending on the battery pack, a supercharger can provide up to 270km of range in around 30 minutes, with a full charge taking around an hour.

Superchargers are free to Tesla owners for the life of the car, meaning virtually ‘free’ travel is now possible for Model S owners between Sydney and Canberra or Sydney and Melbourne.

From here, Tesla is also planning a supercharging station for the NSW town of Gundagai, and the carmaker will begin planning superchargers to connect Sydney to Brisbane.

The Goulburn facility is located at the Goulburn Visitor’s Centre, and offers eight superchargers, while the Wodonga units (six in total) are located at the Wodonga Library car park.
