Not really. Smog isn't much of a problem here. While our car ownership may be high, our cities are small compared with the larger cities if the US, China, Japan, India etc.

And the winner will be Brisbane in the next few years. Super dense, unlimited hight, fastest growing region. Sydney is broke and falling apart. Melbourne or should I say Melboring, the people are leaving in masses to Brissie. Cant believe any one could even rate Adelaide. Perth is a major threat to Brissie as it is such a nice city.
1. Brisbane
2.Perth
3. Wellington
4. Melboring
5. Gold Coast
6.Hobart.
7.Sydney (sin city)
8.Adelaide
9. Darwin
10. Ipswich (just joking)

Sidney-- skyline is nice all around and well organized but lack of new exciting supertall skyscrapers.

Melbourne-- has largest skyline among the four and more taller buildings than Sidney, but its tallest towers seem to be scattered all over its CBD without strategical locations planning.

Gold Coast--magnificent setting, but its skyline is mostly made up of residential condos.

Brisbane-- impressive skyline for its size.

Sydney's density is what I find most impressive, and a large reason as to why it's my favourite skyline.
