Who wouldn’t live here?

Australia’s capital cities rank high as desirable places to live, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index which was announced last week.

After dropping to tenth place in 2022, Melbourne outshone Sydney this year, coming in at third place while its perennial rival was ranked fourth, back up from 13th in 2022.

The strong rankings were shared right across the country, with Perth and Adelaide at equal 12th (up from 32nd and 30th) and Brisbane 16th (up from 27th).

The annual report evaluated the best and worst living conditions of 173 cities based on five major categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Melbourne scored extremely high in education and culture (100 and 95.8, respectively), giving it the edge over Sydney. Both cities achieved improved healthcare scores.

The top ten most liveable cities are:

1. Vienna, Austria
2. Copenhagen, Denmark
3. Melbourne, Australia
4. Sydney, Australia
5. Vancouver, Canada
6. Zurich, Switzerland
T7. Calgary, Canada
T7. Geneva, Switzerland
9. Toronto, Canada
T10. Osaka, Japan
T10. Auckland, New Zealand
