The Townsville regional council has 1223 items in their local heritage register, so I imagine someone in Townsville would be kept busy! The quality and accessibility of local registers seems to vary wildly though, Moreton Bay (where I spent a lot of time growing up) doesn't seem to have their local one online at all. YMMV I suppose.
