In Melbourne, I rekon it would have to be High St Northcote. Don't have a pic but if you have never seen it I suggest you drive there and have a look; it will blow you away!

One of the best angles i've ever seen Sydney from was heading towards the CBD over the ANZAC bridge one afternoon. The sun was setting behind me and casting a brilliant golden light on to the Western Face of the city, and all above and behind the skyscrapers was a dark, dark, dark black cloud that was just about to dump rain everwhere. Simply beautiful.

Also, I like looking across the Harbour from Kirribillis. the SOH on the left and SHB on the right just frame circular quay and the skyscrapers so well.

Ferrars St, South Melbourne has a nice view - does anybody have any shots from the top of the Commision tower?

South Perth without a doubt. Perth is always photographed from there and rightly so. Theres some other nice areas you can look at it from across the river such as Attadale.

This is a bit random, but I like the dynamism of moving 'on the road' views, from highways etc. I guess I'll never grow up - colour and movement!

For Melbourne I've already nominated my top two on the local 'best skylines' thread - sweeping around the Docklands towers against the city lights backdrop, and coming over the Westgate. Unfortunately its virtually impossible to get photographs that capture the essence of either, because you're, well, moving.

There's another good sudden 'smack in the eye' one coming up over the sandbelts suburbs hill on Beach Road - not sure whether its at Hampton or Black Rock there - and again, a big, big spread folding out before you when you come down the Gap Hill above Sunbury on the Calder Freeway.


For Sydney, again I've mentioned elsewhere an all-time favorite: looking back on the whole panorama from the heights of New South Head Road. The area I mean is by that big monastery, convent or seminary up there. Can't quite recall what it is.

btw, this one posted by austraarabian is one great picture too:
