While there are grey areas still regarding the legalities of electric boards and bikes, there is a big push within elements of the Queensland department of transport and main roads to get people out of cars, and onto public transport, or commuting via electric vehicles.
There are 2 expo’s happening in south east queensland in the coming months, One is being held at Chermside, on Brisbanes north side and is expected to get 20 000 people through, is taking place in June, not sure the exact date.
the other one is in Noosaville on the 12th of May

I met a guy from Queensland transport a few weeks back, had a discussion about congestion in inner city Brisbane. They are working on plans to reduce the amount of cars on the road, possibly even introducing tax incentives for commuting via EV. He had never seen an eboard before so of course I took him for a ride… He fell off Took some bark off however that did not dampen his enthusiasm for eboards.
The movement is gaining momentum, mass adoption is coming soon ! Be great if Australia could lead the world in this field.
