Eureka Tower ??
For me that tower is too provocative. Id like it if it were a little bit more elegant.

Anyway I think that Australia has by far the best skylines in all the Southern hemisphere.
In South America, Buenos Aires tops the list IMO.

I have not voted yet, and maybe I wont, because I think comparisons are kinda foolish when people starts to be mean with others, I rather go watch and enjoy great pictures of all our cities. So I don't get your point buddy, I'm not biased, period. It seems you have a problem with that, take it easy man.

Still the river views are some of the best in Australia, only really rivaled by Sydney.

I really love how Brisbane has come along in the last 20 years, won't be long til it has taller buildings than Perth.
Perth takes a nice picture. I assume you're joking about Brisbane sizes catching up to Perth?

Brisbane, Australia

The South American cities are pretty cool...love the mountainous backdrop of Santiago.
IMO a breathtaking natural background/setting always boosts the rating of a skyline for me.

They don´t want pics of Buenos Aires, they think that post more than one pic after you´ve already voted is "SPAM"
