Down here in Geelong at uni there were two pars nesting on the roofs of the buildings opposite my office. I'm not sure how successful they were at raising chicks though.

For the last four years running there has been a pair nesting on the roof of the YMCA at the Jamison Center. Last year I talked to the receptionist there and she said that "the Ranger was aware of them". I don't know what happened to them.
A few years ago there was a pair nesting on a flat roof at CSIRO Wildlife Gungahlin with three eggs that I checked daily. I blocked the downpipes with wire netting for the duration so the chicks wouldn't fall into them before I could rescue them but the eggs were gone one morning and there was no sign of any chicks. There were Australian Ravens around all the time so I presumed they got them.
