It will definately be tough in the future.Maybe Sydney coming second or third because of height restrictions.Perth and Brisbane have certianly chance of having a better skyline than Sydney and maybe places like like Darwin will enter the discussion.

I think Gold Coast has superb potential with its awesome beach and ocean setting plus Q1 to anchor the skyline now.

IMO that 3rd pic makes Melbourne look as dense as Sydney, but hey looks are deceiving.
Love all those pics...Melbourne has a 'kick-arse' skyline.

1. SYDNEY - cohesive opera house & bridge makes it magical plus high rises on both sides of the harbour. Combined would be a long stretch of buildings.

2. MELBA - docklands, rialto towers stands guardian proudly over the CBD and the unique and stylish surrounding skyscrapers.

3. GOLD COAST - skyscrapers sitting nicely beach bumming with its crowning jewel the Q1 almost like a dream.

4. PERTH

5. AUCKLAND

OK Wanch ive read you post why don't these cities get Super Talls.Well first of all Hong Kong has a huge population and needs to house these people that's why they have a lot of high rises.Wouldn't it be stupid for some city like Auckland to have super tall if no ones going to work or live there.High rises just aren't as popular as living in Suburbia.Even Chicago has it as well it's not just all skyline.I agree the height limit in Sydney could be raised to 250m but it isn't going to happen soon.So now you'll see more quality in the design and not just focused on the height.Which will overall make a better skyline.

There aren't many supertalls because it makes little economic sense to build one. And a lot of companies are over the dick-measuring contest these days. Both of the big banks headquartered in Melbourne have or will soon move out of their skyscrapers and into shorter buildings (8-12st) with larger floorplates, doing away with the entire concept of enclosed offices or cubicles.

Office vacancies are as low as ever and there is a severe housing shortage across a lot of Australia so demand isn't the problem.

Wow good pic hkskyline! But that pic shows just hows much space sydney has for buildings around 230m.Sydney seems to be densing up again and in area such as Chatswood and parra and i like that however after they are done i do wish sydney would bring some more stunner's such as GPT,aurora,latitude,world tower,Deutsch bank and many more.But im sure their are a few in the pipeline.

I found these really interesting - even if they are a bit lopsided.
