For the third time in a row, the city of Melbourne has once again been crowned as the world’s most liveable city, just nudging out Austrian capital Vienna from the top spot.
According to The Age, the title comes after Melbourne received perfect scores for infrastructure, education and health care, in the Economist Intelligence Unit Survey, which reviews 140 cities before announcing it’s rankings.
Melbourne wasn’t the only Australian city to prove highly liveable, however, with Adelaide, Sydney and Perth also featuring in the top ten list.
At the other end of the scale, Damascus in war-torn Syria was announced as the least liveable city, largely in part to its instability.
Other cities to feature in the lower part of the rankings included Tehran in Iran and Libya’s Tripoli. Closer to home, Port Moresby in PNG came in ninth from bottom.
