Melbourne - World's Most Liveable City

So how important are these things to you?


(houses in Fitzroy and Clifton Hill)


(Federation Square and the "CBD")




(Federation Square with New Year's barriers)


("CBD" - Central Business District from the Eureka Sky Deck)

(Flinders Street Station)

 (St. Kilda Botanical Garden)


If all these qualities in a city are important to you.

Then you might have to LOVE Melbourne.

In last August 2016's Economist Magazine's Intelligence Unit's Liveability Ranking, Melbourne retained it's top ranking among major cities in the world for overall liveability.  For the sixth time.  

Its score of 97.5 is based on the five broad categories cited above.  Melbourne earned a score of 95 for stability, 100 for healthcare, 95.1 for culture and environment, 100 for education and 100 for infrastructure.  So you don't have to believe me, Mlle. Paradis, that it's a very enjoyable place to visit and probably, an even nicer place to live.  Take it from "Experts".

The Economist does not rate it for food but I think I've said it before....the food is FABULOUS!  And I will claim just a little expertise in that department.  More of that coming in another post soon.  

until then, HAPPY WEEKEND!

  1. I love the Victorian wrought iron 'lacework' in the top three pictures - beautiful! (And the metro upholstery is cool too :-) Hope you're having a good week, sx
