Melbourne is ranked the most livable city in the world.
IT comes as no surprise to many that four Australian cities have made the top 10 list of the most livable cities around the world, but which one came first?

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index has revealed that Melbourne has been crowned the most liveable city, taking out the title for the fourth year running. The Victorian capital beat 139 other cities to top the list. Melbourne has taken out the title of most livable city for four years running.

There’s no denying Melbourne is packed full of culture, good food and even better coffee. Hidden laneway bars and streets lined with artistic graffiti make this place a haven for the sophisticated and the cool, but is a city that can be cold enough to freeze the moustache off a hipster really the best place to live? It seems it is.

The report looks at stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure to assess a city’s liveability.
Once considered to offer nothing but an upside down pie floating in mushy peas, Adelaide offers award-winning food and wine, with a host of small bars and restaurants bringing a new buzz to the place. All this combined with affordable housing and easy living has seen opinions shift.
Sydney also made the cut, coming in at number seven on the list.

There’s no denying the beauty of Sydney with its sparkling harbour and landmarks galore. The big smoke has long attracted those who want to work and play but perhaps the rising house prices kept the Emerald City of Oz further down in the rankings.
Perth was the final Australian city to make an appearance, placed at number nine.

It seems as well as long time locals even the burly mining men who have inundated the streets are attracted to the clean, green living that Perth has to offer.

All Australians can reunite however in the fact that we beat Auckland, which came in at number 10.
