    at least we are not trying to be an European want-a-be
    look at your city, what is your city trying to become? an artist city just like cities in Europe? Sorry mate, you are too far away from the goal.
    At least Brisbane is growing like a true blue australian city.

    The parks in Melbourne are second to none. The public transport, hospitals, schools etc are all very good too. The city centre is run down, Docklands is a huge disappointment (I work there - Compare the unimaginative Lend Lease Montage to some of the great new developments proposed for Brisbane.) Southbank in Melbourne is cold and uninviting.
    I wish we didn't have the casino. Inner suburbia for eg Sth Yarra, Richmond etc is my favourite area, although the eastern suburbs like Hawthorn and Camberwell are good places to live ( Just ask Geoffrey Rush)

    20 years ago I thought the Gold Coast was redneck wonderland, Brisbane was a backwater, and that Melbourne and Sydney the only decent places to live.
    Now I think Melbourne is stagnating, Sydney is going backwards, and Qld is improving rapidly.

    Melbourne is growing at such a rate that it is expected to be Australia's largest city (yes, larger than Sydney) by 2028...

    If u don't believe me...read the article below:


    Melbourne 'on track to be Australia's biggest city'

    New population growth figures show Melbourne is closing the gap on Sydney as Australia's largest city.

    Consultancy firm KPMG has found 62,000 people moved to Melbourne last financial year, nearly twice the increase in the population of Sydney.

    KPMG partner Bernard Salt says if the trend continues, Melbourne will be the biggest city by 2028.

    He says Melbourne's growth is being driven by housing affordability.

    "You can buy a three-bedroom brick-veneer house on the edge of Melbourne in a place like Werribee for $260,000. The equivalent product in Sydney is closer to $400,000," he said.

    "The fact of the matter is that the hurdle rate to get into Sydney by average Australians has just been lifted so much that they're looking at other options."

    And he says for the first time, the number of people moving to the inner city matched those shifting to suburban growth belts.

    "Over the last 12-months, 7,000 people have moved into the inner city part of Melbourne," he said.

    "This actually compares with some of the fast growing suburbs on the edge of Melbourne, places like Werribee and Casey on the east side."

    Mr Salt says the prediction would dash Brisbane's hopes of supplanting Melbourne as the second-largest city.

    "Brisbane has for a long time published this urban myth that it would in fact be the second-largest city in Australia by 2020," he said.

    "That is not going to happen. Brisbane is going strongly, but the fact is that Melbourne has too much of a lead and in fact it's even growing faster than Brisbane at the moment."

    But he says the Gold Coast has retained its title as the fastest growing place.

    "Over the last 12-months 17,000 Australians have moved to the Gold Coast," he said.

    "The issue is that the Gold Coast has held this position as premier destination for Australians on the move each and every year for 30 consecutive years."

    "The Gold Coast has something that connects with middle Australia, it just keeps delivering in terms of attracting Australians," he said.

    Sustainable Population Australia says hospitals and roads in south-east Queensland will not cope if the population continues to grow at the current rate.

    Spokesman Simon Beltais says more than four million people will live in south-east Queensland by 2026 and the growth is not sustainable.

    "You can stack and rack them in the city, but ultimately you're still going to have major amounts of land required to provide those goods and services," he said.

    "It effectively still just propagates the ongoing environmental degradation you see on our land as far as loss of bushland, and obviously that has an influence on our waterways."
    Here's something to surprise you.

    I know our government is ruining Sydney, but it's just for the sake of the growth.
