2. Melbourne
3. Brisbane
4. and in the far end Perth

Maybe I'm wrong but I was in each city too short to observe it better

Auckland's skyline is ok. It has the Skytower but the average building there isn't that tall

Gold Coast's skyline is quite dramatic. It looks somewhat Dubai-ish, with a long linear skyline.

It changed with the Q-Tower. Without it Gold Coast is one of those simple beachfront skyline kinda like Honolulu or Durban

We all have our own opinions but Perth can be better than Sydney

I picked up an article earlier saying that some people in Darwin don't want to 'commit the same mistakes as Gold Coast' and keep the skyscrapers away. Even 20 stories seem too high it looks like.

Here's the article :

Skyscrapers would be `a mistake' in capital
4 February 2008
Northern Territory News/Sunday Territorian

THE Territory's development boom is most visible in Darwin, where the skyline has changed dramatically in just a few years.

The above panorama by Northern Territory News photographer BRAD FLEET illustrates the change -- most notably skyscrapers being erected on the edges of the CBD.

This has divided opinion, with some onlookers hailing the arrival of a maturing city and others lamenting the loss of the character that defined the Territory capital.

Last year the Government was forced to admit the city's development needed a new direction, holding a major planning forum to hear the range of views on the topic.

New regulations were brought in to the planning scheme, dictating new city buildings must have awnings and ``active'' street frontage -- shops, entry point and glass rather than just walls.

A real estate expert said on a recent trip to Darwin that the city was at risk of making the same mistakes as the Gold Coast.

First National chief executive Ray Ellis said: ``All development is good for cities like Darwin and what's happened around Cullen Bay is sensational.

``But to allow 20-30 storey developments in a city of this size is a long-term mistake,'' he said.
