Brisbanes skyline is totally unique and the rate of development is amazing.

It's ok. A bit bland, but the new developments will cure that.

Beautiful! I heard that Brisbane's metro is like 1.8 million. Does their metro includes the Gold Coast?? I saw the city featured prominently on SHARK WEEK on the Discovery Channel. It looks gorgeous and appears to be similar to Miami, Florida with the canals, beaches, condos. etc.

your probably thinking of the gold coast regarding the canals, beaches and condos - yes gold coast is very miami but on a smaller scale. it has a population of 500k but is seperate to the brisbane metro (for now). though its still part of the south east queensland region (SEQ) which has a pop. of roughly 3 million (which also comprises of a few other councils included the sunshine coast which has a pop of about 250k - sorta like the gold coast but obviously smaller and with much less highrise). But your correct in your assumption that Brisbanes population is about 1.8 million but is rapidly approaching the 2 million mark.

hope that answers some of your questions and sorry for the late reply.

inzane summed it up very well. The Gold Coast and Brisbane are two very different and seperate cities. Brisbane is approaching the 2 million mark, while GC is reaching 560,000. They are about 60 km apart from each other.

7/10. It's a good-looking - not great - skyline, but it's certainly impressive for a city of 1.8 million. What's really striking about Brisbane's skyline is how rapidly it has improved, and how much improvement is to come. Only a few years ago, I would have probably rated it a 5 or 6 out of 10. In a few years time, once the current 'under-constructions' are completed, I will probably be giving it an 8 or 9.

I'd love to see more recent photos, if anyone has some.

The census 16 months ago is at 1.91 million and thats including the overseas people who are living here. This city has had 1.8mil for years so if you include the overseas people living here then that'd be nice of you. So I'm guessing about 2.03mil.

Actually the abs had Brisbane's ERP at 1,820,400 in July 2006. Growing at about 2% a year. So it would be about 1,856,808 now.

The centres of Brisbane and the GC are 60 km apart right? Are the urban areas still separated from one another, or is it one continuing urban area when you drive from Brisbane to the GC?
Let's hope they dont become one big urban area, I reckon there should be some sort of 'non-development' zone between the two cities, so that they both keep their own character, and don't end up being one big suburban jungle. I hate it when you're driving around and don't know where which city ends and where the other starts...
