Australia’s most liveable city named

Adelaide has come out on top of a new poll to find Australia's most liveable city, it has been revealed.

The poll, conducted by the Property Council of Australia, surveyed 5,231 people across all capital cities in Australia about what they liked about living in their city.

And Adelaide's access to nature, recreation facilities and outdoor style of living, as well as its climate and educational facilities mean it has beaten the other cities to the top spot.

Elsewhere in the poll Canberra came in second, with Melbourne and Perth vying for third and Darwin edging out Sydney to be ranked as our worst city for quality of life.

The results of the poll will be used to improve the areas that Australians found less positive about their cities including affordable housing and public transport.

"Australians want more liveable cities and they know that the performance of our cities is critical for our future prosperity," comments Property Council national policy director Ken Morrison.

"We need a nationwide effort to boost the performance of our cities to meet the challenges of the future: population, housing, infrastructure and climate change," he added.
