Australia dominates 'World's most livable cities' list

May 04, 2011

Australia has dominated a list of the world's top 10 most livable cities with Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne all making the grade.


In the annual survey by Economist Intelligence Unit, Melbourne claimed second position with Sydney, Perth and Adelaide in seventh, eighth and ninth places. Vancouver was recognised as the world's most livable city for the fifth consecutive year based on a combination of stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.


"Mid-sized cities in developed countries with relatively low population densities tend to score well by having all the cultural and infrastructural benefits on offer with fewer problems related to crime or congestion," the report's editor, Jon Copestake, said in a statement.

 

The Top 10:

1.   Vancouver, Canada
2.   Melbourne, Australia
3.   Vienna, Austria
4.   Toronto, Canada
5.   Calgary, Canada
6.   Helsinki, Finland
7.   Sydney, Australia
8.   (equal) Perth, Australia
8.   (equal) Adelaide, Australia
10. Auckland, New Zealand
