November 08, 2011
Four Australian cities have been named among the top ten of the world’s most livable cities, with Melbourne deemed the most live-able of them all, according to survey that assesses living conditions in 140 global cities.
According to the Economic Intelligence Unit’s new Global Livability Survey, Melbourne topped the biannual ranking of 140 cities with a score of 97.5 per cent, ahead of Vienna at 97.4 per cent.
Melbourne overtook Vancouver - which slipped from the top spot to third with a score of 97.3 per cent - to be named the best city in the world to live.
Other Australian cities in the top 10 include Sydney in 6th place, and Perth and Adelaide at eighth and ninth respectively.
“Australia, with a low population density and relatively low crime rates, continues to supply some of the world’s most livable cities,” said survey editor Jon Copestake.
