I recently had the chance to catch the lift up to level 30 of the Sofitel Hotel in Central Brisbane and snapped these from the waiting area for the lifts.

Fantastic photos Fabian! Just a bit of a shame about the weather.

I honestly think that the Central-Anzac Square-PO Square-GPO concept was one of the best pieces of city planning in Brisbane (up there with KGS and the Queen Street Mall). It adds something special to the very heart of the city!

Great photos, do you have to be a hotel guest to access that area?
No, just take the lift up to level 30. The staff wont have issues with you taking photos. There are people who do go up there to photograph the view. Its like the toilets in the Sofitel in Melbourne which non guests can go up and take photos.

The canyon of skyscrapers in Anzac Square always looks awesome. Even though the individual buildings could be better.

sheesh alright. would never happen in Sydney, there's outstanding skyscrapers everywhere -.-
No Sydney could by far out do Brisbane for blandness. Take a photo of skyscrapers in Haymarket and near Central Station! I swear we have both Australia's best and worst buildings.

Exactly. I don't think there's a single city in the world where every building you is an outstanding one. New York has plenty of uglies, San Fran, London, Los Angeles, Toronto...

Fortuantely the Sofitel is on the ridge that goes up into Spring Hill and many of the tallies are unfortuantely in the lower parts of the city.
