Townsville Council in Queensland has recently unveiled a cutting-edge dual-port EV charger, the AURIGA by EVUp, designed and manufactured right here in Australia. 

This state-of-the-art charger is set to transform the public EV charging landscape as part of Queensland's Electric Super Highway, connecting destinations along the coast to alleviate range anxiety for long haul electric road trips.

By offering EV charging, Townsville council has increased tourism to the area, with drivers being able to find the chargers on Plugshare and UpCharge.
