Sydney is naturally beautiful though spoiled by ugly buildings and a bad plan really...
I'm not saying Melbourne is bad (I think the architecture in Melbourne is very, very unique) but Sydney does not have badly designed buildings! With the exception of a few oldies, the designs are first rate (just like Melbourne's).

I have a real soft spot for ADELAIDE. Its neat, tidy and dense as. Its probably the most well ballanced skyline in Australia with the tallest building punctuating the centre.
IMO it doesn't need a 200m tower - its nearly perfect as it is.

Melbourne Skyline is the best in Australia. Because I live in melbourne and it is da best.
I would rate:
1. Melbourne
2. Perth
3. Brisbane
4. Sydney
4. Adelaide
6. Hobart
7. Canberra
8. Darwin

Sydney's skyline is known and very boring but Melbourne's is professional and amazing with the tallest buildings in Australia. Sydney's is close together but not spread out as Melbourne's. Melbourne wins hands down

Bump!

I have to admit, I also have a soft spot for Adelaide. Although not that impressive as a skyline, from the street level the CBD is neat, tidy and has a bunch of very elegant buildings.

As for the best skyline in the country I think Melbourne is in the process of taking this award hands down. Sorry Sydney!
