The inland route from Adelaide to Sydney via the "riverland" isn't well served 
with charging infrastructure yet but the Australian Electric Vehicle 
Association (AEVA) has a few activist members who have been convincing 
businesses in rural towns to install 22 kilowatt three phase power outlets that 
Teslas can use with a suitable charging cable. Plugshare shows lots of these 
now. 

(We do 3 x 240 volt relative to neutral/ground 120 degree phases in Australia 
like most of Europe.)

It's an exciting time to drive a production EV in Australia!

I drove my Tesla between Adelaide and Melbourne recently. 800km with only one 
Supercharger on the route :-( Tesla are rolling out two more Superchargers this 
year which will shave about three hours off the drive time making it similar to 
the ICE 9ish hours.
