Trip to the Beach

The Gold Coast City Council installed a charging station in the Bruce Bishop Car Park (near Cavill Avenue). http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/thegoldcoast/bruce-bishop-car-park-22661.html  I took a trip to the Gold Coast to have a swim and try it out.

About 75km using the freeway
I left with 100% charge and arrived with 30km remaining (used air conditioning as was 30C+). Car was charged to 100% in less than 4 hours (consumed about 10KWh). Parking fees were $9.20, charging was free (not sure if you can park anywhere in Surfers Paradise for free).

Bay I9 on the Ground floor (to the left, past the ramp, when entering from Beach Road). 
Charger is free. You need a Chargepoint card to activate
 Also I went for a Tram ride from Griffith University to Broadbeach. Was fun to zip around in the air conditioning. No need to travel to Melbourne anymore :)
