Episode 62: The most liveable cities in Australia

This week Brett presents the findings from a recent report of the most liveable cities in Australia. The report is an important potential indicator of housing prices to watch out for across the country. And while Melbourne is considered only second to Vienna in the world ranking, we came in 4th in a study conducted in Australia.

The study considered a small selection of the population (10,000) and ranked regions into the most liveable region for metropolitan and the most liveable region for regional areas of Australia.

The study was based on key attributes including, safety, high-quality health services, job prospects, affordable housing, and reliable public transport. The result ranked inner Perth as the most livable metropolitan region and Warrnambool (In Victoria) as the most liveable regional area.  Melbourne inner south came in 4th in the metropolitan rankings, behind Adelaide Hills and Sydney’s eastern suburbs. 

Typically liveable areas with these ratings should translate to an increase in property prices. Listen to find out which other regions made the rankings.
