So is this the best skyline in Australasia or Oceania? I think Oceania would be more appropiate since it would include the polynesian cities.

Only Auckland can (sort of) compete with Australian city skylines anyway, so would be pretty pointless.

Anyway, the Gold Coast

1. Melbourne - best combination of height, density, expansiveness, and variety. Also has the best current boom going on, and I expect it to solidify its spot at the top for at least the next few years.
2. Sydney - wins in terms of density/quantity, but lacks height compared to other cities on this list, and skyline is a bit stale for Australian standards (most of the recent construction basically blends in and disappears into the crowd, unsure how I feel about the U/C Barangaroo developments)
3. Brisbane - most drastic change into "big city" skyline, excellent density, but seems kind of unbalanced at the moment with positioning of 2 tallest buildings. 111+222 looks like an incredible upcoming project, but 1 William Street looks like one of the most awful skyscrapers Brisbane could possibly build. We'll just have to wait and see.
4. Perth - tough call over the next one, but it has height, class, expanded its skyline along the water with a bunch of residential buildings, and gets the nod at #4 for its superior urban/city feel
5. Gold Coast - best silhouette, awesome height, but up close it really just doesn't do it for me beyond the tallest 4-6 towers, looks more like a giant resort than an actual city
6. Auckland - excellent density and the Sky Tower is a nice exclamation point, but lacks the mass to compete with the cities above it
7. Adelaide - really nice mass and density at the mid-rise level, actually in the midst of its own unheralded construction boom, but desperately needs some height

Well, if it was Oceania instead of Australasia you would include cities in Hawaii. Although not great in height, in terms of density I think Honolulu would place in the top ten, maybe even above Auckland.
