I've many times looked at a Melbourne street pic and thought it looked almost identical to a certain intersection here. The giveaways are the different street cars/trams and your Victorian row houses are slightly different than ours.

If I had to pair them up I'd say that Melbourne and Toronto are twins as are Sydney and Vancouver (over priced beauty pageant contestants!) Brooklyn in New York is the closet to Montreal. An American I chatted with called it a 'French Brooklyn' and it's a great description.
I haven't been to Brisbane, I hear it's a nice city though. If you're coming to Melbourne as well, February will be a good time to come. Great weather around that time of year. Plus, Prima Pearl will be finished and several others will be nearing completion. I bet you'll love it.

With all those supertalls and high density downtown cores, Chinese cities skylines look pretty much the same.

That's La Defense in Paris. It's just an angle we don't see very often here.

"@skyscraperus, what city is that?"

The picture is nice but would appreciate having at least a modicum of description not just picture.

Beautiful city indeed [perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world] but unfortunately not the best skyline in the world. It is always nice to see pictures of Paris though.
