I'm not too familiar with southern-hemisphere skylines, but from what I've seen, I like Brisbane and Rio the most.

Gold Coast's skyline does seem more impressive than Brisbane's. I'll have to mull that over for a bit.

Ah my father lives down there somewhere. Hi Dad and Brisbane looks great. I'm amazed at how successful/huge Cirque de Soleil has become.

When we talk about south hemisphere bests skylines there's no answer unless the Aussie's ones, as much the quality of the buildings as the general view. New Zealand has good contenders too, but the skylines are smaller tham the Australia's ones (a normal fact as NZ has few inhabitants comparing to Australia).

Toward São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago and others south american cities, we have a long way ahead. Among them, Santiago seems to be more developed, with nice towers and rich skyline with diversity. Brazilian cities have a small variety of buildings, all with same size and color. There's no criativity or planning. It's just a lot of buildings and nothing more.

Among Australia and NZ cities, i really like Melbourne skyline. Brisbane and Gold Coast share the second post, while Sydney appears 4th and Perth close the top 5.

Australian cities win on dense, well organized, and centralized skyline, small scale skyline. While by size of skyline, Jakarta is ahead followed by South American city, Sao Paulo.

Quote:
Combined heights of buildings in each city as of 2010
  • Jakarta : 23,674 m
  • Sao Paulo : 22,794 m
  • Sidney : 13,933 m
  • Melbourne : 9,868 m
  • Rio : 8,867 m
source
By my personal opinion, best skyline will be:
  • Sidney
  • Jakarta
  • Melbourne
  • Rio
  • Gold Coast
