Repaint & Refurb

The Giant Drop tower is undergoing a huge refurbishment & repainting process to keep it looking fresh for many years to come.
After 23 years of withstanding Queensland's infamous sun, rain & storms, the 119m tall tower will receive some well deserved cosmetic attention across every inch of its exterior.
Finally, the tower will be given a new lease on life covered in a bold new colour scheme.
