I voted Sydney cos it just seemed such a lovely place when I visited on my gap year, really a place I would consider emigrating to and setting up home in :) Then again I did spend most of my time there so perhaps it my favourite cos I know it the best out of where I visited in Australia...Cairns seemed nice too, if a little small... ;)

That's fine if you like it. I don't. My Grandad lives there, so I've been there enough. Glenelg was the only good thing there, and they got rid of Magic Mountain, so it sucks even more now!

Anyways, I've been to 8 outta 10 places

Not as hectic as Melb and Syd.
But still plenty of things to do
and good night life too :p.

But i have to add, Perth is gorgeous too
And Melb and Syd are just cool huge cities

Sydney and Melbourne are pretty much the same thing. For those not familiar with both places here are the main points of difference:

- Sydneysiders prefer NRL over AFL, Melbourners prefer AFL over NRL

.... and that's about it (ie Sydney wins)

If you are talking to live in Melbourne kicks arse, its so much cheaper, the food/restaurants/cafes are way better. In Sydney or Perth its hit or miss if you go out, 50% good, 50% crap, and its usually the service/price/food that sucks hehe where as in Melbourne its more like 90% good 10% crap. Melbourne has way more events/culture/art than both. Only thing Sydney/Perth have over Melb is better climate and their city harbour/city beaches respectively, but at least we have more water LOL

Yeh Melbourne is awesome, go there pretty much every year, whether that be for footy, tennis or cricket.

I've actually never been to Sydney. :o

Cool, sounds like a pretty entertaining place. I'd imagine they'll be getting pretty drunk tonight after watching the cricket all day. :p

There are way too many Sydneysiders here, Melbourne owns Sydney in every respect. Melbourne is incredibly underrated, for a start it has much more charm, the people are friendlier and its more culturally diverse. Its the modern city with a touch of Europe. Okay I'll stop now.
But seriously, visit both and make up your own mind. If I were a tourist and had to pick 4 cities to visit in Australia then its easily Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane.

And you'll change your mind about Rotterdam when you spend some time here again.
And if you are willing to be open minded, instead of deciding you don't wanna like it when you go there again.

Anyways, nah, i don't wanna swap, i love my family too much to be away from them for so long. Maybe when my sister's kids are older and can deal with it better.

Sydney is Australia's iconic city that is most recognised overseas. The harbour bridge, the opera house, the harbour in general are recognised the world over.

Melbourne has no iconic landmarks.

Melbourne does have better sporting events, but we had the Olympics which melbourners still arent completely recovered from...

Depends on sexuality too - if youre gay, its a no brainer - Melbourne has no gay night life compared with sydney period.

Melbourne is a nice place to visit, but the lifestyle of living in sydney with a dozen top beaches to choose from on any given weekend....that beach lifestyle just cant be beat imo...

Umm I'm sorry - YOU had the olympics - well guess what - we beat you to that 1956 Melbourne had the Olympics! :haha:

Yeah, because there's such a big gay population in the world for them to choose Sydney over Melbourne, and St. Kilda has gay nightlife btw.

Best Australian city depends on who u ask

ask a Melbournite and u will always get Melbourne as answer (or someone from Victoria)

ask a sydneysider and u will always get Sydney (or someone from New South wales)

these Sydney Vs Melbourne fights been going on for years :lol:

I love em

for the record I voted Sydney. I just love Sydney.

Nothing better than travelling over Sydney harbour.

I went past the bridge on a ferry last week and was wondering what they are putting on it for New Year this year I can't work it out :lol:

Not necessarily true. I thought a bit before choosing Melbourne actually. Because I do like Hobart, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra too!

I have only been to QLD out of the other options and i live in sydney. QLD is nice but Sydney is just so much better.

I honestly dont think any other Australian city can beat walking along the Sydney harbour at sunset, that is enough to beat the other cities by itself!

Adelaide coz Hewitt was born there :lol:
I'd guess alot of people would probably hate Adelaide for a similar reason....

By the way, why did no one vote Canberra? It's aesthiecally quite nice actually, I don't even think rubbish exists there, and everything is symmetrical. And has that massive hill that Parliament House sits on that everyone can roll down. And QUESTACON!!!

I like Canberra, but the city is pretty dead. It's a nice looking city, but not so much nightlife, and it's mostly museum's and that sort of stuff. ;)

No one voted for Canberra because of the politicians who work there probably...

Melbourne has been voted world's most "liveable" city before, so that'll be my first choice. I haven't been to Sydney, but from the pictures and good reports, I guess that'll probably be my number two. Gold Coast isn't bad, but IMO Queensland is the most nationalistic of all Australian places with Cronulla Sydney coming in a close second.
