This year Melbourne was crowned the world’s most liveable city for the fourth year running, receiving a score of 97.5 out of 100 against 140 other global cities and a perfect score for healthcare, education, infrastructure and sport.
The news came only weeks after Melbourne, Tokyo and Copenhagen topped culture and lifestyle magazine Monocle’s Quality of Life Survey 2014.
“Finding the measure of a city is as much about the intangibles that light up a community as the infrastructure keeping it going,” Monocle wrote. The survey also takes into consideration the more subjective appeal of the places it lists, such as overall aesthetics and convenience of services.
So Sydney may have glitz, glamour, booming surf, sunshine and a sparkling harbour, but Melbourne has something more refined and civilised: it’s good to its citizens and has outstanding lifestyle, culture, dining, art and recreation opportunities in easy travelling distance.

It’s also a great place to invest in property. With the city set to become Australia’s largest as early as 2030, the state government continues to invest in key infrastructure to ensure Melbourne remains the best possible place to live, work and do business.

✓ Decreases the financial risks for property owners, and
