It's an understatement to say that Australia's Brisbane is in the middle of a building boom - it has been for the last ten years. When I was there recently I counted at least 30 cranes on the skyline. A taxi driver told me it was all about the booming mining and coal industries. Who am I to argue? I loved this new central city building - and from where I'm sitting in freezing cold Christchurch, that blue sky looks especially enticing.
