the tallest structure in Napier, NZ, isn't very tall . Tis a cathedral. I guess it's about 30m?


Either that or the old hospital (now abandoned).

The tallest structure in Townsville isn't a building - it's a 160m communications tower on top of Mt Sturt


Here's a diagram I drew comparing to to Holiday Inn (76m), Townsville's tallest building.
