I'm agreeing with Peter on this one,
if the gold coast is in, then you might as well put Canberra in!!!
Sydney would be the only logical city for Aus.
Auckland for NZ

Quoting Peter

What didn't make sense to me was that somehow it managed to be a 'showcase' for Australia when all I think of is a cheesy strip of high rises on an overrated strip of beach. If you are going to name 2 showcases for Australia (kind of defeats the whole purpose of the thread anyway), surely Melbourne ranks a 1000 times higher than the Gold Coast. And if having the tallest building is the deciding factor, then I think Melbourne's claim is stronger as well (when spires, etc. aren't counted) - ie, the Eureka Tower, the tallest residential apartment tower in the world.

And if you're going to pick natural attractions, then the Great Barrier Reef would have to far outstrip the Gold Coast.

When I think of the Gold Coast, property scams are what come to mind, so I really would not like it to be considered a showcase

Sorry, I hope you're not from there..

yeh nah your probably right peter... Just forget i said Gold Coast. I was thinking of is as a very popular tourist destination and the beaches. I think your being a bit harsh on it tho it is a very nice place with alot of good beaches but yeah Melbourne would easily be ahead of it in terms of cities

Ain't that the truth.

i think boston is a much better city than new york city. Montreal is another great place. as far as australia goes i think melbourne beats out sydney hands down

Las Vegas would be another city that has managed to gather more than its share of attention, I would think.
