Im not saying it is not a great place to live. I would take brisbane over sydney any time. I have not been to melbourne so I cannot comment on that comparison.
Believe me, its not the hype that Victorians on here tell you. Sydney has a big city feel to it, but its the only city in Australia that does.Even then, its a long way behind major OS cities.
Icons - well again, only Sydney rates here with the Opera House and Bridge (other Aussie icons tend to be natural, like Uluru and Great Barrier Reef). A city doesn't need an icon to be really good or interesting.
Quality of buildings - there are plenty of excellent buildings recently built or due to be built soon in Brisbane. Again, the Melbourne comparison is somewhat superficial - Melbourne has some nice architecture but it also sure has its share of butt uglies (the brown monstrosities on Collins Street - only their mother could love them).
Compactness of CBD - this is great - surrounded by a wide river on each side and giving kick arse density with the added bonus of all these 200m + buildings now built, under way, or soon to be built.
Just relax and enjoy it man.
^^ Don't bag Melbourne! Brisbane IMO doesn't lack anything, I mean you can't just look at another city and say Brisbane should have something like that. Brisbane is unique and better for it! Also can't wait to see how the old girl's looking in ten years, it'll be a completely new city.
not bad mate not bad at all:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:Excuse me, "Fuckwit"? Well it's good to see the art of conversation is alive and well. But I think you're forgeting that I'm made of rubber and you're made of glue, so whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.
Pot. Kettle. Black. :lol:When did I bag it? Read my post again and don't be such a fuckwit.
Haha good job :cheers:Excuse me, "Fuckwit"? Well it's good to see the art of conversation is alive and well. But I think you're forgeting that I'm made of rubber and you're made of glue, so whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.
