    It's gotta be Sydney. It's the only logical choice.

    Sydney's a lovely place to visit, but Melbourne is a better place to live.

    And we consistently rate higher on the list of the world's most livable cities.

    Didn't the Sunshine Coast just shut its doors?

    There's too many toads and Japanese tourists up there gray. That's the problem.

    Yeah but after the first cyclone they all head back south.

    I think its funny how we Aussies argue about the best city. I thought that it would be normal in other counries to do the same but I have not seen this in other countries like in Australia. Truth is we would like to combine the Melbourne city living with the Brisbane climate. (and no Sydney is not the perfect solution )

    you know full well that Brisbane doesnt get cyclones, monsoon storms occasionally, but no cyclones

    i think its cause in reality there isnt a whole lot of difference between the cities, so we have to try and point out the differences

    I don't argue. Otherwise the traffic in the Gong would become interminable.

    i cant recall any brisbane cyclones in my living memory. the only cyclone close to Brisbane was cyclone wanda in 1974 which came ashore north of brisbane. There might have been one in 1893, but i dont think that counts towards current times

    doubt it, just kidd'n.

    As a Melbournian I hate it how so many people kling to that most livable city award that the city once won (in the 90's sometime).

    I assumed that, I was just referring to this award 'Most Livable City' (whatever that means) which a few Melbournians use a little too often.

    As I said, it's a nice place to visit.

    We consistently rate highly in that award, even in the years we don't win it (and I think we've only won it once, so far).

    They look at many aspects of life, including the cost of living, the climate, the entertainment, transport, etc.

    Sydney tends to fall behind Melbourne due to its crime rate. Often it scores lower on the weather too, though I don't personally agree with that, since I don't mind humidity. I would imagine the transport side of things would hold Sydney back as well. The ferries are marvellous if you happen to live and work somewhere suitable, but the rest doesn't match up to Melbourne.
