SYdney, it has a lot of those ugly, plain buildings from the 70s, they don't really match in with the surounding modern skyscrapers, but again, this is just my opinion.

oh, images from google.

I'm sorry but Sydney's skyline is one of the best in the world. There is no way in hell that it is No.6 in Oceania. Yes, it mightn't be an outright No.1 anymore with a lot of quality buildings going up in Melbourne, but it is at the very least one of the top 2 in Oceania, for density alone.

That picture of Brisbane is the only good angle of Brisbane. It looks horrible from the north and average from South Bank and there are a lot of average buildings in the CBD.

Don't know what you find appealing about Auckland's skyline (and that picture is horrible) and Perth's is nice to look at but there isn't much substance in terms of depth. Looking at it side on it's not much of a skyline at all!!

Gold Coast has a nice skyline and should be given extra points for being a non-capital city skyline but there are a lot of less than pretty apartment towers.
