We have reserved accommodation in Devonport and Cradle Mountain. These are EV friendly places with self contained kitchens and all your bedding taken care of.
Stay at the Devonport Discovery cabin park from the 8th to the 11th of November. See below for details.
Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village is giving us a special rate on the 12th of November.
Bookings will be taken through this website in due course. Devonport and especially Cradle Mountain are popular destinations so we'd encourage you to book accommodation yourself if you are staying outside these dates.
Accommodation in Devonport
You are invited to stay at the Discovery Caravan Park, 13-19 Tarleton St., East Devonport. AEVA has booked the entire site from Wednesday the 8th, checking out on Sunday the 12th of November 2017.
Choose from a range of affordable self-contained cabins, some with seaside views. Or bring your caravan as part of your statewide holiday.
Cabins are available in various configurations to sleep up to six people. All have a kitchen and bathroom, are heated and bed linen is provided.
Standard Cabins are comfortable, basic accommodation.
Superior Cottages are a bit more fancy, some include ocean views or spas.
There are 10A outlets in the cabins, but we'd prefer that people don't plan to use them to charge cars. Power to the entire site is limited and we'd like to manage it carefully to avoid blackouts. Plus it might be difficult if multiple people in a cabin all planned to charge their cars at once!
A neater way to charge your car is to pull up to a powered site. Each site has a 15A outlet and can be used all day and all night.
Full Cabin : $140 per night - Either just for yourself or organise a group. Choose any cabin on the map, first in first served.
Room : $100 - One of two rooms in a cabin, either with a double bed or a set of bunks. We will allocate the cabin, but will attempt to fulfill requests.
Bunk : $35 - Share with others to keep your costs down.
Powered Site : $10 - To charge your car! Or bring a caravan and camp.
Powered Site Ensuite : $15 - Power plus toilet & shower for campers.
For example: Fred owns a Tesla and wants to stay for the conference and car show. He is arriving on the 8th of November with a 1/2 full battery. Fred decides to book a bunk for the 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th. He also decides to book a powered site to charge his car - but only for the 8th and the 11th. This will cost him a total of $140 for accommodation and $20 for charging. There will be plenty of time to charge his car fully, since he has access to the powered site (a 15A outlet) for two 24 hour periods.

We've made a spreadsheet to keep track of bookings. Use it to check which cabins are available, then if you have a preference you can request a specific cabin when you book.
Book your accommodation for the 8th to the 12th of November via this link. You'll be taken to our TryBooking site where you can book and pay. This site will only take credit cards - if you need to pay another way then please contact Christopher Walkden: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you'd like to arrive before or stay on after those dates please book through the normal Discovery website here.
Accommodation at Cradle Mountain
Accommodation at Cradle on the 12th of November is with the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village. Luxurious secluded cabins, each with its own unique wilderness view. Prices start at around $50pp (six people in a shared Villa). Management has promised to add a 15A outlet to every cabin that we book!
Check out the cabins at their website: http://www.cradlevillage.com.au/ (Look at the options but you can't book through the website. See below).
We have reserved the entire village for our event, and you'll get a 15% discount when you book. You need to make your reservation before the 12th of September when any un-booked cabins will return to be sold as normal.
