I've seen this building before.......isn't it the world's tallest residential built last year ???. It's been used as publicity for Archicad, which I heard is very popular in Australia.

Renzo,

It's the Eureka Tower which is the tallest skyscraper in the Southern Hemisphere and tallest apartment building (to the roof 297m/91 floors) with Q1 apartment tower in Gold Coast, Queensland taller to the pinnacle. It's now considered as the one of the best skyscrapers in the world (according to the SSC poll) and finished quite recently. A spire of some sort is currently being proposed.

It's name and choice of colours is a reflection of an important event in Australia's history (Eureka Stockade).

note: From memory Mugley took the photo by the walking bridge and the second photo of this post.

Hola from Aussieland! I live in a region called South East Queensland, SEQ is a consolidation of 2 major cities and several small, edge cities. Brisbane, the capital of Queensland is where I live, and the Gold Coast is 45 minutes away...
Here are a few pictures of Brisbane. Thanks to all the Brissy forumers for some of these pics...




Future Vision tower!






And now the Gold Coast...or (GC)

Brisbane looks great! Nice modern buildings are on the rise. The bridge reminds me of "Queens Bridge" in N.Y. The park next to all the buildings looks great. Gives the city a nice green look.

Sydney looks great too. The city has a great skyline! Thanks alot for the fotos. Great job guys!

SoulvisionQ1,

Am I correct in saying that it is Story Bridge? If not it is extremely similar.

Anyway Story Bridge was designed by John Bradfield who also designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The design for the bridge was based heavily on that of the Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal.
