Melbourne beats Sydney again

I always knew it – Melbourne is a better place to live than Sydney.

In a world ranking of the most liveable cities, Monocle’s 2015 Quality of Life Survey has put Melbourne in fourth place,  ahead on Sydney on fifth.

No other Australian city made it into the top 25 and Tokyo has been crowned the world’s most liveable city, earning high marks for its “defining paradox of heart-stopping size and concurrent feeling of peace and quiet.”

This year Monocle, a British lifestyle magazine, added 22 new criteria to their survey including the price of a three-bedroom house, the cost of a cup of coffee, glass of wine and decent lunch, and access to the outdoors.

Top 10 cities:

1. TokyoMelbourne-Night
2. Vienna
3. Berlin
4. Melbourne
5. Sydney
6. Stockholm
7. Vancouver
8. Helsinki
9. Munich
10. Zurich/Copenhagen
