Melbourne: The world’s most liveable city for the seventh year in a row

Melbourne has once again been named the world’s most liveable city! I’m so proud to call Melbourne home and wasn’t surprised when I read this news yesterday.

For the seventh year in a row, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has ranked Melbourne number one, achieving a score of 97.5 out of 100. The Economist‘s liveability index measures cities based on a number of factors, including stability, healthcare, education, culture, environment and infrastructure.

World’s most liveable cities – the top seven:

  1. Melbourne 97.5
  2. Vienna 97.4
  3. Vancouver 97.3
  4. Toronto 97.2
  5. Calgary 96.6
  6. Adelaide 96.6
  7. Perth 95.9

My favorite things about Melbourne include the culture, people, buildings, transport and events (oh and the coffee!). There’s always something to do, see, explore and eat in Melbourne!

Here are some photos that show the Melbourne that I have fallen in love with:

If you didn’t get a photo at Hosier Lane, were you really in Melbourne?

Congrats Melbs x
