I love the lawn. It makes perth feel so open. Gives a different feel to any of the other oz capitals. Perth has enough room in and around the CBD for future development not to have to touch it's open space.

Yep. We should savour as much green space as possible. Even hugely urban cities like Tokyo and NYC have substantial amounts of parkland.

Oh we also have Kings Park on top of all that grass land. We only build freeways or roads on the rivers edge!

Langley Park

Quote:
Langley Park is an open space in the central business district of Perth, Western Australia. Running alongside Riverside Drive, it is grassed, rectangular in shape and has dimensions 900 x 100 m (3000 x 300 ft). It was created by reclaiming land from the adjacent Swan River between 1921 and 1935, to provide open space near the city.[1]

As a pioneer of civil aviation in Western Australia, Major Norman Brearley used the park as an airstrip in the 1920s. That tradition continues with "fly-ins", where small aircraft land in the park.[2] In 2003, to celebrate 100 years of powered flight, 10 aircraft – one representing each decade of the 20th century – landed.[3][4][5] Aircraft have also used the park to perform emergency landings. In 1997 a Tiger Moth TMK had an engine failure and put down in the park.[6] While not an official airfield, Langley Park makes Perth a place where fixed-wing aircraft can land in proximity to the central business district

Those fields areused quite often for sports and as the city population of the city grows in Perth, that "lawn" as you call it will be become an even more valuable part of the city. Though I would like to see more activation along the foreshore on that stretch from Perth Quay to The Causeway.

Sydney and Melbourne are drifting away from each other appearance wise. Good to see more variety in OZ.

Australian cities remind me of Greek city states like Sparta.

I wonder if in the future people from each capital city will develop their own unique culture and accent.

1990s Melbourne and Sydney today. Similar beige boxy skyscrapers IMHO.

Are there height limits in Newcastle or is there not the demand yet to build taller towers (apartments)?
