Why Is Elon Musk In Australia? Let’s Speculate Wildly

Elon Musk is on the Gold Coast right now. And he’s been eating steak.

Musk just shared a photo of himself and Amber Heard, movie star and his partner of a year, at dinner at Moo Moo on the Gold Coast, where they were joined at dinner by a goddamn massive glass of red wine.

Amber Heard and Musk apparently also went ziplining up at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast over the weekend, where Heard is filming Aquaman at Village Roadshow’s studios alongside Jason Momoa, director James Wan (of Saw fame, among other things) and the film’s exec producer Rob Cowan — both along for dinner as well.

Visiting his partner at her movie set is a perfectly legitimate reason for Musk to travel to Australia. This much is true. Doesn’t mean we can’t wildly speculate other reasons why Musk might be in town, though, right?

Maybe he’s in Australia to see some of the Powerwall installations popping up all over the place. Maybe he’s checking out Tesla’s showrooms in Brisbane and Sydney and Melbourne. Maybe he’s doing a bit of market research for the Tesla ute.

Maybe, though, he’s meeting with our Prime Minister and the South Australian Premier to talk about that massive battery farm that should fix the state’s energy problems? Heck, maybe he’ll get from Brisbane down to Melbourne in a Tesla for free to save a few pennies.
