Melbourne crowned the World's Most Liveable City


World’s Most Liveable City


For the fourth consecutive year Melbourne has once again been crowned the World’s Most Liveable City! Three Australian cities feature in the Top 10, with Melbourne whipping up a perfect score in categories including healthcare, sports, education and infrastructure.


The Economist Intelligence Unit assesses various lifestyle categories across 140 different cities all over the world each year. And clearly they are in love with Melbourne! I mean come on, four years in a row? And who can blame them? The Victorian capital is known for it’s creative vibes, trendy café lifestyle, whacky fashion and colourful graffiti covered streets.


I spoke to a Melbourne local to get the low down on just why Melbourne is so good. Here’s what he had to say:


 “Melbourne is absolutely the world’s best city! I've worked in many cities around the world, as well as in every state in Australia and Melbourne is without a doubt my favourite. Jumping on a tram to cross the city, a walk across the Yarra River to South Bank, a great meal in China Town or a night out in Docklands. Melbourne and especially the CBD and surrounds are vibrant and alive yet it doesn’t feel busy or rushed like other cities”.
