Favorite Skyline in Australia

I don't know if this one already exists so I thought I would make a new one.

Think i will say Sydney for its natural setting and it's instantly recognisable landmarks which Melbourne and the rest lack. Good to see Brisbane is fastly catching up with the top two and Perth finally getting into gear over the past few years but Sydney just about takes it for me at the moment.

Melbourne! It certainly isn't very large, but it has a great shape, elegance, and is very alluring.

Australia is so cool. It definitly punches above its weight in the skyline department. I would have to say i like Melbourne the most...even though I do not understand Eureka...and that gold thing makes me angry. Other than that, its very very nice!!!
