Melbourne Named Most Livable City

Melbourne has been named most livable city in the world for the fifth consecutive year on The Economist's Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Global Liveability Index. The annual ranking looks at living conditions in 140 cities across the globe by assigning a rating across five broad categories, including stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure.

Ranked first, Melbourne cemented its positions with a perfect score of 100 in healthcare, education and infrastructure and within the culture and environment basket, a perfect 100 on sport underlining the Victorian Government's continued investment in these priority areas.  

Melbourne has consistently appeared in the top five cities since the ranking's inception in 2002, and has taken out the top spot in the index for the past five years in a row.

In the five years that Melbourne has retained its number one spot, international visitors to Victoria have increased by 8 percent per year, compared the national average of 4.7% per annum.
