Q1 On The Gold Coast - Australia

It's the highest building in today's banner so why not take a closer look at it. The Gold Coast is in Queensland, Australia.

My first thread in the international forums so lets see how it goes.

It's also the worlds tallest residential tower and also Australia's tallest tower. In a city with 600 000 people.
Nice work Gold Coast

Can anybody post some pictures of the view from the inside of Q1? I guess one can see miles of coast from the top floors!
