on 15 November myself and MYT332 arrive in Sydney and will stay for 2 nights, on the 17th we fly onto Melbourne where we will stay for 2 nights. What are the best things to do in both cities during the day and also the evening?

Both cities have nice observation towers, which are good to kill half an hour or so (if a little expensive).
In Sydney, take a Harbour tour by boat. You see plenty, and it is very relaxing! Melbourne also offer river tours. We did a cruise to Williamstown, again the cruise is very interesting as there is plenty to see. Williamstown is nice (and I can recommend the fish and chip shop there for Barramundi and chips!)

Melbourne has river cruises that go out into Port Phillip Bay. Not quite as spectacular as the Sydney cruises but an intersting experience cos you're in the same shipping lanes as the the container ships that go to P&O's Swanston Dock West and Patricks at Appleton Dock.
We also have a restuarant tram that goes all over the Melbourne tram network. It does have to be booked and isn't cheap but you should be able to find stuff on it if you ask the hotel you're staying at in Sydney.
If you want to see .............interesting architecture try wandering around Federation Square. Unless you want to buy something it's free
