Melbourne or Sydney- which one to see?
I am allowed one stop-over on my way from NYC to New Zealand. I hear so many good things about Melbourne, but would also love to see Sydney and the Blue Mountains!
Any opinions? (I only have 4 days in the city I choose). Thanks!

When is your trip? This, and the things which would attract/interest you, might influence your choice and the advice people might offer.

Melbourne is a great city but you need time to get to know it. Sydney though is a must see - the visual impact of the harbour is second to none and it's a vibrant city.
