SF and Melbourne have a similar vibe.
West LA and Sydney do too.
Miami or Honolulu kinda are kinda reminiscient of Brisbane.

Sports-crazy and sprawled-out Melbourne? I've never been so I can't judge the comparison beyond that, but those are two things I know.

Downtown Melbourne has trolleys, ornate buildings alongside new ones, lots of foot traffic, eclecctic(or eccentric-LOL) people, diversity, nice urbane public spaces and proximity to water.

at first glance,

San francisco and Melbourne
San diego and Perth
Seattle and Sydney
Honolulu and Brisbane

Up close, the only city with an Australian vibe would be San Diego. Hell, I'll even throw in Honolulu and Orange County and Miami Beach.

Melbourne has a lot of cloudy weather.
It's coldest month averages 57 F in the day, 45 F at night.
It's warmest month is 77 F, a full 20 F warmer than winter.

Melbourne summers are very unstable (SAB's posts on the weather forum) with several highs past 100 F and several highs under 65 F are common in a normal summer.


San Diego is supposed to have a lot of sunshine.
It's coldest month is 65 F in the day, 48 F at night.
It's warmest month is also 77 F, but this is only a difference of 12 degrees F.

San Diego's summer weather is supposed to be pretty stable; I hear they hardly ever hit or pass 90 F. Given the average, one could assume that a summertime high of 65 F or lower would be impossible in San Diego. Also it rain is practically impossible in a San Diego summer.
