Annual Bulk Buy
As an official Tesla Owners Club we get to participate in a discounted merchandise buying program.
The discount applies to Lifestyle Accessories and Apparel with the exception of:
- Charging or Vehicle Accessories
- Radio Flyer Tesla Model S for Kids
- Tesla Powerbank (this item is prohibited from shipping internationally)
- Tesla Diecast models
- Tesla Wireless Phone Charger
As we did last year, to simplify the pricing conversion you can buy approved merchandise at the USD price shown but in Aussie dollars – e.g. if its USD99.00 on the Tesla store then you will pay AUD99.00. Shipping is $5- per household.
Go here https://shop.tesla.com/us/en.html?tesref=true and check out what you would like; remember, the Apparel and Lifestyle sections. We will soon be sending a link to a spreadsheet where you can request your orders. We plan to have deliveries in time for holiday season but cannot promise as it is mostly outside of our control

22 November (Vic) – Tesla Tech Talk Night @ Tesla Richmond
Tech Talk events, hosted by Tesla are high level introductions to Tesla for non Owners – who they are, why they do what they do and what it’s like to live with an EV. Come along, share your experiences, and maybe share your referral code!
23 November (NSW) – Entertain Newcastle/V8 Supercars
Visit us at the V8 Supercars ! TOCA members will be displaying their cars, offering test rides to the public and chatting to the public about all things EV. We'd love to have you join us for some of the event.
25 November (Qld) – Sandstone Point Hotel Lunch
Tesla Queensland gathering for final meet-up for 2018. Sandstone Point Hotel on Sunday 25th November. It would be great if you could join us for what is probably the last TESLA Meet for 2018. It’s a lovely venue on the Pumicestone Passage overlooking Bribie Island. We will be lining our cars up on the grass as we did two years ago and hopefully will get some drone footage on the day. Plenty of food available at the hotel.
25 November (Vic) – Destination Unknown Lunch
Join fellow Tesla owners at Tesla Cremorne at 10-00 am for morning tea and socialising. Around 11-00 we'll decide where we want to go for an optional drive - maybe to a Yarra Valley winery?
9 December (NSW) – Soar and Roar
Special Olympics Australia organise an annual festival for their athletes that includes a "dream drive" in a luxury car to the event at Sydney Motorsport Park.
This year TOCA will be providing a team of 20 Teslas to drive the athletes. Can you help us and be one of the team?
This is a great fun day and you’ll make an athletes day whilst giving back to the community. The starting location for our drive to Sydney Motorsport park is ANZ Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park. There may be some cars driving up from Melbourne to participate – join the convoy!
If you can’t join the day please consider donating to support TOCA’s efforts to fundraise https://www.soarandroar.com.au/fundraisers/TESLA-OWNERS-CLUB-OF-AUSTRALIA
20 January (Vic) – Great Australian Rally
Join fellow Tesla Owners and attend the Great Australian Rally, a display of around 800 veteran, vintage & classic cars 25 years or older. This year a special display showcasing changes in automotive design and technology through the decades from replicas of the first Benz and Ford culminating in two shining Teslas being the most advanced cars today. We’ll also be looking for a Model X and a Model S to display as the most advanced vehicles available today.
Date TBD (National) – Dubbo Supercharger Opening
Be prepared for a rally to celebrate the opening of the Dubbo Supercharger. As we’ve all grown to know and love about Tesla – we don’t know when this will be. However, we plan on getting as many Tesla’s to the opening of Dubbo as possible showing Australia that travelling by Tesla is getting easier all the time. If you would like to come please register – we understand that once a date is announced it may not be possible but we are keen to understand interest.
Want to organise an event in your area? We'd love you to. Simply contact your TOCA state rep using the state email addresses shown our our About page or simply send a message from the app.
