These pics are a good example of why I love Melbourne's skyline so much.

I think Melbourne is the best atm. Perth will catch up a little in the next few years!

Melbourne for mine, one i don't like is Brisbane, doesn't have much shape, most of the buildings are square not much different. Sydney a close second but in a few years Perth probably second.

My fav is Sydney, but only because I consider the amazing bridge as being a part of the skyline. Otherwise it would be Melbourne for me.

I'm gonna have to be biased and go with Sydney although Melbourne is beautiful from certain aspects too. Just needs some more density!!

All of Australia's major cities have beautiful skylines. I'd give Melbourne the edge because it has more buildings, more height, and a greater degree of architectural diversity. It reminds me of Chicago in some ways. Sydney is a close second and definitely comes out on top in terms of natural surroundings.

I have just got back from Australia and i have to say as nice as Sydney is i prefer the simlicity of the Perth skyline. Its no frills with a coupl of talls in the middle. I went up St Martin's tower for an (overpriced) meal and the views up there were great. I have some nice pics of both Perth and Sydney's skylines so i will put some on this eekend hopefully.

Whenever I look at photos of Australia it looks like some kind of paradise. It looks almost too good to be real, like its hard to believe a place that good can exist in this world. Ive been twice, but only when I was quite young, and the lifestyle and beauty there is just incredible. I would move there in future, if it wasnt for the fookin spiders. Your immigration policy is also something to admire

Melbourne has the best and classiest skyline in oz . No question about it . Especially with all that is being built in docklands .

I love the Perth skyline. It's so simple and pleasing to the eye. Anyway these are a few pics from the holiday i have just been on.

Oh, btw i don't have a clue what that flying thing is in this pic. It just appeared .
