Photographer's Note

The Q1 (Queensland 1) tower, the tallest building in Australia when measured to the spire (Eureka in Melbourne tallest to roof) was completed in 2005. Its slim-line superstructure dominates the holiday strip of the Gold Coast, 80 kilometers of the state capital Brisbane and is about 20km north of the New South Wales border.

At 323m tall, it is the same height as New York’s Chrysler Building and the Eiffel tower in Paris. The observation deck seen here, and in my past photo ”The Observers is on the 77th floor above the beach and is one of the only coastal observation decks in the world. In the afternoon, the building casts a long shadow hundreds of meters across the beach below and over the Coral Sea. It can be seen from 100km away on a clear day.

To see the full view of the tower see here

Also, this is the View from the top!

Well worth the price to go to the top for hour or so.

I eliminated colours due to the brightness of the scene and I thought it might accentuate some of the interior features better.

Enjoy.
