Not sure where it is, but it was reported in New Scientist in the UK earlier this year

http://www.newscientist.com/article....mg18324585.900

"A folly in the Australian outback or a source of cheap green electricity for generations to come? Rachel Nowak investigates plans to build the world's tallest tower
ON THE dusty red dirt of an old sheep station, a 6-hour drive from Melbourne, plans are afoot to build the world's tallest tower. Forget quibbles about whether an antenna or flagpole should count in the final measurement. If this concrete structure makes it off the drawing board it will smash every record in the book. It will stand a staggering 1 kilometre tall, and its base will sit at the centre of a shimmering field of glass and plastic 7 kilometres across.

If the tower's dimensions are awe-inspiring, its aim is breathtaking. The planned structure will be Australia's biggest solar power plant by far. Air heated by the sun will rise up the tower, where 32 turbines will generate about 650 gigawatt-hours of electricity a year, enough to meet the demands of 70,000 Australians. EnviroMission, the company behind the project, hopes to start building work next year "

Hi, it is near Mildura - actual location is planned over the river in Wentworth (NSW), but it will serve Mildura & Sunraysia region. This project has been in the pipeline for well over a year now but I'm not sure what the latest news/progress is. Good luck with finding more info
