Melbourne is very dense! Looking down from the Rialto, it has soo many mid-sized buildings/apartments, they are pretty old and some even had tennis courts on the roof.

I've never really thought of the Melbourne CBD to be very dense. Plenty of scrapers, plenty of height, but also very spread out. When you view a picture of the skyline from some angles, it seems to have holes that need filling. Looks as though there is plenty planned for Melbourne though, so maybe these holes will fill soon.

That is an awesome shot! Is that the Dandenongs behind? I've never seen a picture of Melbourne with the mountain ranges behind! That looks great!

Melbourne's has Australia best skyline without a doubt and probably at the bottom of the top ten worldwide in my honest opinion. It truely is the Chicago of the Southern Hemisphere. Sydney, you've got your harbor sure but your second when it comes to style and skyline. Melbourne is both classic and daring. Love that mix and the fact that it has a long yet still dense skyline, and not all grouped together like Toronto but placed out to show off. Its built to look number 1.

One of my favourite photos of Melbourne but I don't know who took it. It's a few years old.

the skyline will be much better w/ eureka topping off.... but for now, it's got some punctuation but nothing truly stands out architecturally. the clustering is a bit off.

8.0

Nice balanced skyline, but I'm not particulary fond of some of the buildings. 8/10

Eureka & Freshwater place will be great additions.

7.5

Eureka will be a nice addition. When thats completed- 8.0/8.5.

A little overboard with buildings with unattractive massive spires/antennas though.

The City of Spires. Melbourne has a fantastic skyline and its not all clustered in one spot like other cities. Its like several skylines in one, East End, Middle and West End. Also, the way Docklands and Southbank are coming alone they might challenge the CBD in the future. There is so much happening down there in the Garden City.

Love those shots sakor1, really shows the length of the skyline.

One taken today:

As one can see, Eureka and Freshwater Place are growing and starting to make a good impact on the skyline.

The Australian cities are the examples in the world. Australia doesn't need highrise so much, plenty of space there. But for city image building these beautiful skylines are top! Sydney is marvelous but I love Melbourne even more, especially the way they integrate highrise within the city's 19th and early 20th century centers. A 10 for Melbourne!!!
