Hurstville has one at the moment for The Avenue Office complex, but that will be coming down soon.

Brighton Le Sands also has one for an apartment project in Bay St.

You could lump them together to form a southern Sydney crane count.

there's 2 tower cranes at the John st cutting highrise units, ie, one on either side but the one at the city west apartments will be coming down very soon i'd say (and may be as I write). there has been a tower crane at evolve for about 2 weeks or so. there's also a couple of smaller floating cranes at the sydney wharf development (darling island you mentioned).

Hey Culwulla, there's a tall white one that I can see from the top of my street in the Castle Hill/ Cherrybrook area. I wonder what that's for.

There's one in Castle Hill but I'm not sure if it's the same one.
not sure, maybe a new highrise?
i love the new 9storey HORIZONS!

There's a big'un over City Rd, by the USyd footbridge.
I've noticed a second crane around the Sydney University site as well. There's also a crane at the Sydney Technology Park at Redfern.

On the train today, I noticed a crane in Kogarah as well opposite St George hospital. :)
