Just like the tittle says...which city is most "eclectic" in terms of architecture?

Yeah, that's classic mid 1800s. That sort of thing is definitely common in oz.

This question is too subjective.

But, Melbourne has a lot of eclectic interesting architecture, for sure.

But I kind of like the Queenslanders housing styles up in Queensland.

I also like Sydney a lot...

Maybe Melbourne has the most eclectic though, as far as new constructs.

They usually say visit Sydney for the harbour, opera house and centrepoint tower. And Melbourne for its architecture and the arts.

But the thing is, Sydney has a diversely beautiful architecture scene. Even more so than Melbourne, if you want. They're just overshadowed by the aforementioned landmarks in Sydney.

It's all about the marketing. Sydney's always marketed for its setting and beaches and Melbourne on 'culture', but the truth is both cities have their fair share of both and I find that if you look beyond the differences on the surface both cities actually look, feel and function rather similarly.
