Why was Melbourne the most liveable city in the world?

Melbourne was once listed as the most liveable city in the entire world for a total of seven years. Sadly, the city lost its crown in 2018 to Vienna, but even despite this loss, Melbournians still find their city to be the greatest.

The reason it was officially picked

There were many factors that the officials looked at when determining a city’s liveability. On Melbourne’s 2017 win, it scored a 97.5 out of a 100. Receiving perfect scores for their healthcare, education and infrastructure. As well as having a relatively low crime rate compared to other main cities.

The extra pros in the city

A multicultural city

One thing that Melbournians are truly proud of is how arts and culture is a critical part of the city. The streets are lined with local galleries, museums, street art, and an array of multicultural cuisines. With so many different people from all areas of the world living in Melbourne, the food and culture have formed a stunning fusion of nations. Letting travellers experience a modern fusion style of Asian, Spanish, Italian, and many other cultural things blending into one diverse culture for all people to enjoy.
