I have lived in Sydney for 8 years and I had a chance to visit Melbourne too. Both of them are actually quite like from my perspective. Major differences include:

- Melbourne is more European, Sydney more Asian
- Sydney is generally more expensive
- Sydney has more beautiful beaches
- Melbourne has better fresh food markets (Queen Victoria Markets) comparing to Sydney's Paddy's Market
- Melbourne has trams, Sydney has two level trains
- Traffic is worse in Melbourne IMHO
- Public transport in CBD is better in Melbourne (free tram)
- Sydney's Opera House, Darling Harbour and Botanic Gardens do not really have their counterpart in Melbourne

Personally, I love Sydney and wouldn't like to move to Melbourne.

To add a few:

Food is good but extremely expensive.
Beaches, surroundings and harbor are stunning.
It has one of the most scenic and beautiful places I’ve ever been to.

Food is fabulous at a reasonable price.
People are easy to be with than Sydney.
Simply livable.

Smile Is Australia the right place to go for a higher study?

Why does one prefer to study in Australia?
Some common reasons that allure international students to choose Australia as their overseas study destination are:
• self-motivated and progressive education programs with a repute for excellence
• easily available Australian Student visa
• globally recognized courses and qualifications
• a relaxed, enjoyable and safe lifestyle
• cheaper study and living expenses compared to many other countries which allures students to study in Australia
Education in Australia provides advancement to vocational education and training which provides an education leading to originality and excellence. Students can study the latest technologies and other courses which are also a choice of the overseas students.

According to my knowledge and experience,Sydney is better than Melbourne because Sydney is a second big city for business and matters after capital.So the facilities and opportunities are better there.

Smile Sydney...The name says all

Sydney - the name signifies all the beauties here.According to me,its the best place in Australia.Opera House, Darling Harbour with marine aquarium are main attraction to visit this place.Visiting the downtown tower (Sydney Tower) will have a complete view of the city from the top. The Blue Mountains provides a beautiful romantic scene of the valley. The night life in Sydney is one of the most active in all Australia.
