I’m not a big fan of the Gold Coast’s never ending development and these new building’s are no exception. The Jewel, comprising 3 towers, tower over surrounding buildings making them appear minute in comparison while blocking out sunshine and beach views. I found them to be an intrusive phallic structure that can’t be ignored and constantly in your face so to speak but that’s progress in a popular tourist town I guess. I must admit that the architecture is quite impressive and it is sure be another Australian landmark.
Stretched across 130m of absolute beach frontage, the site sits over 2.8 acres and includes luxury residential apartments, an internationally rated 5-star hotel including a Michelin Star restaurant and a grand ballroom. The Jewel is due for completion in mid 2020.
New buildings and more going up. I never get tired of this view.
It doesn’t get any better than this. It’s a glorious day in Brisbane today with not a cloud in sight. Ok maybe a one or two 🙂
Out and about at Kangaroo Point Cliffs once again. Brisbane has such breathtaking city views and the stars were out to play. Perfect!
The ABC Building at Southbank, Brisbane. Another “undercover” street photographer session 🙂
These photos were taken from Kanagroo Point Cliffs. The clouds were waiting for me as they usually do 🙂

The beautiful Story Bridge, Brisbane.
Another night photo of the Victoria Bridge looking across from Southbank.
A great way to end the work week with a stroll through the city with a few like-minded friends and a camera 🙂
