The most liveable City in the World

Melbourne has again been voted as the world's most liveable city for the third year running now.

Take comfort from that tourists!

We are still expensive but people love coming here.

Could not agree more. I alternate between Melbourne, Darwin and SE Asia and still love Melbourne.

It is a beautiful city and I enjoy it, but I'm not sure the criterias used has any significant bearing on tourism; Stability, Healthcare, Culture and environment, Education, and Infrastructure.

Nevertheless, well done!

OK, I'll light the fuse then run.........

I divide my time between Sydney and Melbourne and I would suggest that Melbourne is a better place to live and Sydney is a better place to visit.

Until we have trains running more frequently than every 30 minutes in the evening, we can't be the most liveable city.

Although it's nice to win the award again, I don't put too much on emphasis on it. There is very little difference between the top cities. It could of gone to any one of them.

Hi,

IMHO and IME the "most liveable city" is an oxymoron of the first water! Thank heavens the bulk of Australians still reside in them. Living is done outside cities!.

Cheers,

Melbourne, Australia
