I always thought it meant above sea level - which would be consistent with Woolley's extreme conservatism...with 0.00 being set as the Australian Height Datum based on the placement of 30 tide guages around Australia.

So you pick the Tide Guage on Hobarts waterfornt and go straight up 75 metres then draw a horizontal plane so that would result in an overall lowering of building heights in Hobart due to its general rise up from the waterfront.

But this is just my theory...I am sure someone else will know for sure.

Sea level would be an odd choice I think. The tower on Mt Wellington is the highest tower in/around Hobart in that case! My vote is for height above existing ground level.

So a 75m tower could be extended by lowering the ground a bit during the building stage.

There's a bit to wade through, but here's a start:
