Chargefox, Australia’s largest public electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has revealed target locations for all 22 locations in the first phase of their ultra-rapid EV charging network, and announced a target to grow to over 100 ultra-rapid sites around Australia.
With five ultra-rapid stations already open, this first phase will result in 22 stations connecting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with additional sites in Western Australia and Tasmania. All ultra-rapid stations will be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy.
Chargefox CEO Marty Andrews said, “We’re committed to making EV charging simple, fast and clean, and are thrilled to be leading the way in making this a reality for all Australians.”

“Our plans to complete the first phase of our ultra-rapid network are well underway now. From our rapid growth over the past two years, we’re learning how drivers in Australia use EVs, and are now using those lessons in future planning to grow the network Australians need,” Andrews continued.
The next 17 locations in the first phase of the Chargefox ultra-rapid network include:
- NSW: Gundagai, Sydney, Ballina, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Karuah, Cooma, Shell Cove and Goulburn
