I wouldn't mind Brisbane. But Gold Coast though has an impressive skyline even if it's mostly residential.

Auckland's skyline is impressive but mostly mid-rises, kinda like San Diego. The Skytower can make it up though

Well Sydney to me is average and is not as dense as NY, HK or even Chicago.

Toronto though can rival Sydney's skyline.

Australia has a lot of attractive skylines. I think Melbourne is the best one.

I prefer Sydney over Melbourne even if Melbourne builds the tallest buildings in the country.

It all depends on your perspective. My favorite views are:
1 Melbourne from the Bellarine Peninsula. You sit on the beach at Portarlington (beer in hand, of course) and the towers of the city rise out of the water directly in front of you. 60 miles by road but only 30 or so as the crow flies
2 Similarly the Gold Coast from Tweed Heads or Coolangatta. A broad sweep of towers rising out of the horizon but gradually sinking below the horizon
3 Some nice views of Sydney from Glebe

Australian cities remind me of US or Canadian cities. The country's largest city have impressive skylines.

How about Auckland? Ok it's mostly mid-rises but they have the Skytower. But if the city have some supertalls, it would have an impressive skyline.
