Melbourne has been crowned the globe’s most liveable city for the third time in a row, nudging out Austrian capital Vienna.
In the review of 140 cities, Victoria’s capital was given perfect scores for health care, education and infrastructure. “Improvements to infrastructure in Australia, where the federal government initiated an ambitious long-term road-building programme in 2010, prompted rises in some cities in 2011,” a reporter said.
Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Robert Doyle called it “a great result for Melbourne, for tourism and for our international education reputation.”
Can’t be bad for State property prices and potential equity increases either!
