MELBOURNE IS MAKING HISTORY AS IT RINGS IN ITS SEVENTH YEAR AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD’S MOST LIVEABLE CITY LIST.

Posted On: August 17, 2017

Melbourne snagged the coveted title in the annual Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Global Liveability Index, but it wasn't alone in that top 10, with two other Aussie cities getting a nod.

Perth came in at number 7, while Adelaide scraped in with a joint fifth place alongside Calgary. ADELAIDE!

Melbourne narrowly inched out Vienna and Vancouver, second and third respectively, by 0.1 and 0.2 points.

The top 10 looked like this:

1. Melbourne — 97.5 out of 100

2. Vienna — 97.4

3. Vancouver — 97.3

4. Toronto — 97.2

5. (Tied) Adelaide/ Calgary — 96.6

7. Perth — 95.9

8. Auckland — 95.7

9. Helsinki — 95.6

10. Hamburg — 95.0

This time last year, Melbourne's win cemented the record for the longest period of time in the number one position. This year, Melbourne has broken its own record with a seventh win. Pfft, show-offs…

Poor ol' Sydney came in at number 11 for the second year running, having slipped from seventh place since 2015, while Brisbane held onto a steady 16.

Compared against 140 other cities from across the world, the EIU Liveability Ranking assigns a rating across five broad categories, including: stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure.
