Shopping centre group Stockland is spending $200,000 installing Tesla Destination Chargers at 31 shopping centres across Australia over the next year
The first Tesla charging point launched today in Cammeray, near North Sydney, and the company says the rollout across four states: NSW, Queensland, Victoria and WA, will be completed within 12 months, offering free recharges.

Stockland already has Chargepoint EV chargers at 10 sites, including the Cammeray, Balgowlah, and Baulkham Hills centres in Sydney; Point Cook in Victoria; Burleigh Heads in Queensland; Harrisdale and Balvidis in Western Australia.

Commercial property CEO John Schroder said technology is increasingly a key part of the retail experience, and EV vehicles are part of that future.

“Our customers continue to demonstrate their desire for more innovative in-centre features, tech-integrated amenity and sustainability led initiatives to enhance their everyday shopping experience,” he said.

“Just one hour connected to a Tesla Destination Charger provides up to 81 kilometres of range. We are excited to roll out these convenient facilities across our retail portfolio, allowing shoppers to plug in for free.”
