These two major australian cities are always battling it out, on who is better, who is bigger, who has the best buildings, well whats your opinion.
MELBOURNE

SYDNEY


Melbourne is better than Sydney

That about sums it up.

- Better and cheaper food
- Nicer people. Sydney people can be rude!
- Has an arts and entertainment culture (Sydney doesn't!!!)
- We host the International Melbourne Comedy Festival, Grand Prix, Moomba and various other festivals
- Our CBD is easier to navigate
- We have trams and not lightrail
- We have Australia's SECOND best university - the University of Melbourne, ranked 22 in the world! (NOW BEFORE ANYONE DISPUTES THIS, PLEASE REFER http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Melbourne) Link below.
- People come down to Melbourne to shop
- We hosted the World Swimming Championships
- AFL comes from Melbourne - much better than that NRL crap
- Our Lord Mayor is John So. Everyone knows that he rocks!
- Sydney is the most polluted capital city in Australia! (Source: "What's good for you")
- Own experience with people with anger management problems coming from Sydney
- Melbourne has better drivers - Sydney drivers have anger management issues (generally, Sydney people are just angry, see above - people who SLAM audit files in rooms and books on desks in an office environment, isn't that right?)
- Traffic is better in Melbourne
- Melbourne has more markets for getting fresh fruit, produce and other cool stuff. There's Queen Victoria, Preston, Prahran, South Melbourne and many more!
- Melbourne is grid layout, north east south west. Sydney is a nauseating rollercoaster.
- Fashionable, friendly. funky, fun, vibe, bars, parks, basically how ugly is George St? How beautiful is Collins St?Adds to our AWESOME nightlife
- We don't have ugly beach riots like Cronulla!
- We also have the national champion football (Melbourne Victory) club... and the countries greatest high school, aptly named, Melbourne High School (also not forgetting MacRob for the girls)
- Better architecture rather than relying on the Harbour and Opera House for everything!
- We have the biggest shopping complex in the southern hemisphere - Chaddy!
- Crown Casino kicks Star City's ass!
- Cheaper booze
- FASHION!
- We have the Eureka Tower - tallest residential building in the world!
- Oscar winner Cate Blanchett comes from Melbourne! (and MLC)
- Public transport is so much damn cheaper!
- We have the Aus Open and Kooyong Classic, which kicks Adidas international tournament's ass :p
- Worst coffee ever in Sydney
- Melbourne doesn't have a stupid monorail!
- More expensive accommodation in Sydney and property in general
- Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival time, not to mention the Melbourne Cup!
- MCG is a much better stadium than SCG
- Well endowed men - note I am ONLY putting up your suggestions so feel free to argue this one with me
- Really great bars
- Monopoly Board which features Melbourne
- Melbourne also has the tallest office building in australia - depending on who you believe - either 120 Collins, Rialto or 101 Collins - they are all taller than any buildings in Sydney
- 7 out of the top 10 Aussie companies have their HQ in Melbourne....BHP, Telstra, ANZ Coles Myer, NAB, FOSTERS
- Melbourne had the first ever cricket test match
- Bigger agricultural show
- The Melbourne Cup and really awesome Spring Carnival
- Bigger Fashion Festivals (Melbourne International)
- Melbourne hosted the first sitting of parliament, before Canberra was established
- Melbourne also has the best fire-twirlers in Aust
melbourne is the sporting capital, all the best sporting people from around the world come to our city
- We were the capital city of Australia before Canberra... They've never been and never will be!
- We hosted the Olympic Games first... They can never take that away from us hahaha

Honestly, I don't really care. Each city has their own advantages and disadvantages. And we're both Aussie cities here anyway, so what's the point of hating or being jealous of each other? At least you wouldn't have had to uneccesarily waste such a long period of time trying think of reasons (or more like childish excuses) to soothe your jealousy of Sydney if you stopped hating it. Why don't we stop fighting each other (maybe this goes for Brisbane and Perth too) and do something that'll be constructive instead? This thread will just inevitably lead to another pointless argument.

Your doing a disservice to your city, Nick. Topics like these make Melbourne appear awkwardly self-conscious.

So, to summarise NICKKKKKKKKKK, Sydney is a shithole where rude men with tiny penises and no appreciation of the arts, stand around making crappy coffee and having riots on the beach because of their anger management problems.

Er, right. :bash:

Seriously though, both cities have their positive and negative features, and everyone will have an opinion as to which they prefer. But this ridiculous thread is just asking for trouble.

Hmmm...there seems to be a LOT of silly bitterness in the Oz section of this forum. Some of the resons given here are frankly ridiculous...Cate Blanchett comes from Melbourne? What the hell has that got to do with anything? Dear me.

Btw, whatever that thing is in the pic of Melbourne, it makes it look as bad as the awful (and I'm SURE that pic was chosen on purpose) pic of Sydney. Looks like the lovechild of a rubick's cube and a skate park.

Some of your suggestions as to why MEL is better are quite funny. But then that was your intention wasnt it.

for instance;

MEL has Cate Blanchet?

Well endowed men???????? wtf?

Sydneysider have anger management issues?

Heres my reason why SYD is better;

Im from there.

We have beaches where you see heaps of hot pert boobs.

Sydney has less people who go berko killing people in public; Hoddle Street massacre, Queens Street massacre, mafia wars.



Close the thread.

Chuck Norris and Mr. T Melbourne walked into a bar. The bar was instantly destroyed, as that level of awesomeness cannot be contained in one building. True story.
