So what makes Melbourne such a livable city?
For the past 9 years, Melbourne has been hailed one of the best places to live and work. But why? What makes it so great? According to experts and locals, Victorians have a great overall quality of life. Settling in is pretty easy as well for immigrants wanting to work in the city. It is also well known the Victorians are healthy and have high life expectancy rates particularly because of high quality public and private hospitals. The city puts a premium on healthcare services for the community.
With parks and open spaces, great forms of transportation, and the best schools and the best university in the country, Melbourne is truly a great place to live in. So you can say that it would not be called one of the most livable cities for nothing.
