The Q1 - Surfers Paradise tallest building - Skyscraper and city scapes Queensland

August 15, 2014

Surfers paradise is home to Australia's tallest building. The other night I was able to get a quick photograph of the tallest building. I hope you enjoy

Q1 (abbreviation of Queensland Number One[3]) is a skyscraper in Surfers Paradise, on the Gold CoastQueensland. It lost its title as the world's tallest residential tower to the 348 metre building The Marina Torch in Dubai on 29 April 2011. As of May 2012, it is the fifth tallest such building. Q1 is the tallest building in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere[4] when measured to the top of its spire (fourth tallest building behind theEureka Tower, the Rialto Towers and the Infinity Tower, when measured to roof and highest habitable floor) and the second-tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere, behind the Sky Tower in Auckland,New Zealand. It opened in November 2005.[3]
