The most liveable suburbs in the most liveable city in the world

Melbourne is consistently rated the most liveable city in the world

Recently The Age has been looking at what makes Melbourne so liveable.

Interestingly they found that world class liveability in our inner suburbs has its downsides.

It creates huge residential demand in a small area, pushing housing prices higher and out of reach for many.

Melbourne undoubtedly has some of the world’s most liveable suburbs, but they are increasingly in areas that many Melburnians can’t afford.
