Here's the finest skyline, not just from Oceania, but all over the world! Melbourne it's the number 1!

But i have to say that all Australian cities, like Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Gold Coast have excepcional skylines, a perfect mix of buildings and landscapes.

I absolutely agree. I've always noted the potential for Melbourne to draw inspiration from Chicago's river canyon, and with Southbank remarkable growth, is fast becoming a reality. The many river crossings too helps.

Melbourne has a fantastic skyline!
It's the best in the Southern Hemisphere, the best in the Commonwealth, and the best on the planet for any city under 5 million save Dubai. A masterpiece!

I'd take Melbourne over Dubai any day. But then again, it's a matter of personal preference.
