Yeah but are they towers/hammer heads?. Because I noticed while I was in Darwin that they have different style of cranes up there compared to the portable cranes in southern Australia.

You think thats impressive - Townsville also has the biggest Crzy Clarks store in Queensland and the biggest Sportscene mega warehouse in all of Australia! Townsville is soooo awesome :D

Here is a current list of all the construction cranes in Townsville (total of 12). The different cranes you saw in Darwin - were they self-erectors? (see pic of one here) There is one currently in operation in Townsville (at 19 Stanley), but I don't count them as proper construction cranes.

Dalgety (City) - 1x Favco 1500 luffer
Gateway (Sth Tsv)- 1x Favco 750 luffer
Solarus (Sth Tsv)- 1x Favco 750 luffer
Central (City)- 1x Comedil CTT flat top hammerhead
Altitude - (City) 1x Liebherr hammerhead
Jade (North Ward) - 1x Liebherr hammerhead
Element (North Ward) - 1x Liebherr hammerhead
Abode (Sth Tsv) - 1x Liebherr hammerhead
Mariners Peninsula (City) - 2x Potain hammerhead
Metropole (Sth Tsv)- 1x Potain hammerhead
Itara (Thuringowa) - 1x Potain hammerhead

^^ No Jade's Crane is still up, though however, Element on Gregory's crane has since dissapeared, probably back to Cairns of course.
