I would have to go with Sydney...even though summers are cool in Sydney and would be barley acceptable for me. Still, Sydney has daily highs that are pleasant about 8 months of the year (Oct – May). Melbourne, is too cool for too long , compared to Sydney… as there are really only 7 months (Oct to March) that are I would find pleasant. Also, the argument can be made that Melbourne has no warm months at all outside of Jan/Feb.

Sydney for it's higher rainfall. I like the climate of Sydney, although Melbourne has a nice climate as well.

Also interesting is that, despite having much cooler winters than Miami, has the exact same record low temperature.
Doesn't Melbourne have a more oceanic climate than Miami does? I think that may be the reason why

Yes, Melbourne has an oceanic climate with no polar air masses whatsoever able to reach it due to the huge expanse of Southern Ocean separating it from Antarctica. Miami has the large North American continent north of it which can funnel down cold continental polar air to subtropical latitudes. Miami does get some moderation however mainly due to the warm gulf stream and the fact that Florida is a peninsula.

Similarly, San Francisco has the same record low temperature as Miami and Melbourne and has similar winter (but not summer!) temperatures to Melbourne.

Miami is "oceanic"... just the ocean it sits beside is as warm as a bathtub!

Sydney wins easily for being warmer. Though winters are still too cool so I give it a C+
