I was there in Summer (australian Summer) and man was it hot.
Seemed that everything happened in Townsville at an unbearably
slow pace...

A more recent pic: (Kudos to phreeky82)

There are quite a few cranes on the skyline at the moment, the whole CBD is like a construction zone.

Ah nice a Townsville thread. Lots of construction going on in CBD. The skyline is growing. But right now its only 6/10

Should be better next year.

Nice! It's Australia's Kelowna. These 2 cities should be twinned. Sunny and booming.

A few more of Townsville, There is also a construction picture of one of Townsville bigins, Which is Dalgety at 20 stories. Townsville is going very very strong at the moment, nearly 16 tower cranes in and around the city. The city is regional Australias fastest growing city with Townsville having more Towers cranes that Adelaide which is a capital city housing a population over 1 million whilst Townsville has a population of 200k. There are LOTS of Towers being built in Townsville at present and will be pretty cool to see the skyline within the next two years because it wont be anything like these pictures. Ill post more later .
