Please ensure you book your own passage. Early birds get the sharper deals team, so book ASAP.
DAY 4/Sunday: Stop in Kaikoura*
2x CHAdeMO fast chargers available.
1- New World
This would be an ideal place for Tesla to provide a supercharger, not just as a strategic SH1 location for us, but this will also help the Kaikoura local economy to bounce back after the crippling 2016 earthquake.
By displaying the need, this helps our cause and shows Tesla where we’d like our supercharging network extended.
Lunch at Kaikoura’s famous, The Pier Hotel.
Delicious local seafood and Waipara regional wines are on offer here.
Stop CHRISTCHURCH & Overnight!
The George Hotel, convenient supercharger located behind hotel.
DAY 5: depart Christchurch 0900, destination: OMARAMA supercharger!
STOP 12:30pm/Photo Op:
The iconic, Church Of The Good Shepherd on Lake Tekapo.
A line up of Tesla’s would look incredible alongside one of NZ’s most photographed destinations, set in front of one of our country’s biggest clean hydro energy sources.
STOP: Omarama Supercharger!
From here please make your way in your own time to Queenstown where we will officially close our rally the following day.
DAY 6: Queenstown!
We made it!
Let’s celebrate over lunch at the famous kiwi ‘Pub on Wharf’ along Queenstown’s stunning lake front.
That’s a wrap!
Safe trip home folks!
