Panorama of Melbourne from webcam on 101 Collin's spire (that's the one in middle of first night pic with one tiny blue light at top which is now floodlit brightly)

My ranking: 9/10 (includes bit of hometown bias) but will be higher by 2006 when there is a new tallest, smaller gap and possibly a new cluster of 200m+ towers at southbank.


EDIT (27/04/2008): Okay, it's been five and a half years since I wrote that post (I've also graduated from high school and am almost about to graduate from university in that time). Everything's become heaps better and I'd change my vote if I could.

I hate the angle which shows the big gap, but it looks great from every other angle. 7

Great skyline, good looking individual buildings (though those ones with the silly spires still are annoying to look at).

Does Australia proud - 8.5

The majority of votes cast are between 8.5-10/10.

Right! So which fools voted less than 4. Please..., if Melbourne is less than four the majority of other cities around the world would get a negative score...hardly!

Cheers

Dean - Melbourne
