I must admit, I like to bat for the underdog. When I discovered all those great projects happening in Tweed it has me quite excited - and dissapointed at the same time.

People in Queensland don't care because its over the border.
People in NSW don't care because its outside Sydney.
It seems a waste that all this is going on and nobody is even seems to care.

Anyway I hope it gets some more recognition.

BTW - do you include it in GC's skyscraper count? Or in NSW's count?

Tweed easily. Its a funny sort of relationship considering its part of the Gold Coast but not the GC due to it being on the NSW side of the border.

Dubbo town centre is very pleasant these days but it has no talls apart from an exceptionally ordinary 6 storey "tower" built in the 1970s (?) and the 5 storey Amaroo Hotel which was built even earlier. Since then the population has almost doubled and there has been the occasional taller tower announced through the ages but nothing concrete has eventuated. It's almost 2 years since I was last "home" so some-one correct me if there has been any significant development.

Driving into Dubbo at night is amazing - this long string of lights can be seen on the horizon half an hour before you get there, it looks very sprawly.

Would be great if there were some towers.

I was in Forster last weekend (coincidental to the triathlon, might I add), and upon getting there I wished I'd taken my camera. For a fairly small town, there was a lot of construction going on. Forster has a few towers from 6-12 storeys.
