Lot of great pics on this page.
My ranking:
1) Melbourne - tall and nice towers + dense skyline
2) Gold Coast - looks like real paradise
3) Brisbane - has very spectacular towers
4) Sydney - big, dense skyline but it needs some dominating towers like Melbourne has
5) Perth - nice skyline but not as good as those above

What really impresses me with Australian cities is their ability to keep surface parking lots at bay. Just looking on Google Maps, there are VERY FEW distinguishable surface lots near the CBD.

Honestly, I'm not sure why we north Americans have so many. You'd think our downtowns would be the first parcels of land to get built out, but astonishingly there are still lots all over the place.

I was in LA and Vegas last June and noticed just one or two blocks from the strip and the main CBD's it was just site after site of surface carparking or fenced up abandoned sites.

One of the great things that places like Melbourne have done in the last 20 years is to encourage and promote cafes, clubs,festivals and big events etc and lots of after or all hours hours type entertainment in and around the central CBD which has then led to people wanting to live nearby which has then translated into demand for developers building countless apartment towers which creates the vibrancy.

Having a huge tram and train network doesn't hurt either.

Certain US cities are not like this at all. For example, have you been to Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, San Francisco, or Baltimore? Those cities all rival (or in the case of NYC, surpass) the density of Sydney and Melbourne. Most of the Southern cities are, unfortunately, as you described.

My current list for Australian/NZ skylines
1. Melbourne - best combo of height and density, poised to pull away from the pack in the next couple of years
2. Sydney - must build taller or risks being overshadowed by smaller cities
3. Brisbane - best transformation of last few years (and still going), looks like a much bigger city than it did
4. Gold Coast - best silhoutte, kind of 1-dimensional up close
5. Perth - BHP is just ok, but overall some nice density improvements and doing a good job stretching across the waterfront
6. Auckland - nice density, is anything new going on here?
7. Adelaide - very impressive building boom, but needs some taller buildings
