Highrise views of Australia & NZ!!!

Post shots that you have taken of views from our city skyscrapers particularly ones from buildings that the public cannot access!!!

I was looking at these from level 76 of World Tower in 2003, and since many have joined since then it's worth sharing.

A number of Sydney forumers led by CULWULLA were given a guided tour of the yet to be completed World Tower in November of that year. Amazing day it was.

Back then I had a Kodak, my first camera and not necessarily the best, even for that time.

Absolutely, if it wasn't for 120 collins in the first pic it would've been hard to pick that is was Melbourne.

The view from the other side of the building is a lot better (and also has no sun shining into your face), I'll try to get some pictures someday.

I'd give a limb to live in Aurora or Riparian. Incredible views.

Just give $600/wk rent instead - it is much less painful.
