1) Sydney - No real surprise here, can hold it's own against nearly any city in the world.
2) Melbourne - Excelltent height & some nice architecture, just needs a bit more density.
3) Brisbane - Australia's emerging skyline (Along with GC), nice density. Finally starting to get some decent talls with some excellent projects in the pipeline.
4) Gold Coast - Like Brisbane, getting some decent talls, should look awesome in a few years with all the big ones built.
5) Auckland/Perth - Auckland beautiful setting, skytower looks great but dwarfs the rest of the skyline unfortuately. Perth, nice skyline, 2 good tall towers then falls away after that. Needs a bit more density.
6) Adelaide - Height limit, what more can i say? Density is not bad though.

P.S. Marky Mark, i'm pretty sure that photo of Melbourne is a photoshop job.

Sydney and Melbourne can vy for no.1! Though I choose Sydney, Melbourne has a nice cluster and they have some of the tallest buildings in Australia.

I'd have to go with Sydney.

Melbourne has the denser concentration of skyscrapers - but Sydney has the more famous, iconic and recognizable skyline overall.

Yep. The sky's fake, the saturation looks like it's been increased and there are alot of trees that have just been photoshopped in but other than that it's still Melbourne's skyline. On another note really happy to see that Brisbane's coming into it's own. It'll look fantastic in a few years, with Vision, Empire etc.

I really like Australian skylines. They look organized, clean and has that laid-back feel to it.

But in all, I prefer Sydney
