Perths only winning because it's a shorter flight.
I'm not sure you'll get much info worth having, without trying to be a cock about it
For starters it's obviously subjective depending on what people like. For seconds you'll probably not find a single person who has lived in all of them and can really comment from a position of experience. You'll find few enough who have even visited them
I loved Brisbane when I lived there, and I loved Cairns when I visited it (just loved the feel of the place)...and I hated Sydney.
Come on you Smellburnians where is your vote. Lived in Melbourne and Cairns, they are like chalk and cheese but Cairns gets my vote
“A lifetime isn't forever, so take the first chance, don't wait for the second one! Because sometimes, there aren't second chances! And if it turns out to be a mistake? So what! This is life! A whole bunch of mistakes! But if you never get a second chance at something you didn't take a first chance at? That's true failure.”
OK, I 'fess up. I voted for Melbourne! I live in Brisbane though. I prefer Sydney for visiting but I could definitely see myself living in Melbourne. One of those multi-million beachside houses in St Kilda or Brighton would do nicely...
. Having just had a burst of humid-type weather here in Melbourne, I always like the fact that we get the cooler weather (yes it is cranky and cold sometimes....) but I do like to rug up in the winter, walk through the autumn leaves at this time of year, and then see the new leaves of spring grow. I love to visit Sydney, but wouldn't live there. Adelaide I like for all kinds of reasons, a small but pretty and family kind of place. I even like Canberra, except for all the politicians, lol, and even though it is man made etc......my friends who live there love it and don't want anyone to discover it..........Melbourne is an acquired taste for some, but if you know it intimately as I do, you could well find yourself really liking it - there is something for everyone. In fact I have lived here all my life and am still discovering things around the city I haven't been to, especially some of the fantastic bike tracks and parks and gardens.

I live in Perth but I would put it 2nd, I have to put Melbourne 1st for me I just love the place it just has a great vibe and feel about it that I just can't explain, there are so many places I could tell you that I love but I would go on and on. Perth is alot quieter and has a better climate and at times I have a love/hate relationship with those things. I have to say I have'nt seen all of the Cities. Adelaide is lovely and Sydney is a beautiful City but very very busy. Will get to Darwin,Cairns,Brisbane and the Gold Coast one day. I am really looking forward to going to Tasmania though been told it is just gorgeous by alot of people, sorry no interest in Canberra.............
