Vote to change the title of the thread from "Australasia" to "Oceania" so cities in Polynesia can be included in the thread

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
That's spot on how I see it as well. I might add that Perth looked better before BHP went up.

I think Auckland runs Perth close, definitely above Adelaide but behind Gold Coast IMO.

I love the Australian skylines, very impressive for cities with relatively small populations, Sidney and Melbourne combined have a smaller population than London but they still have more impressive skylines.
