For the fourth year running, Melbourne has been awarded the title as the world’s most livable city in the 2014 Economist Intelligence Unit survey. The annual poll takes into consideration a range of criteria including health care, culture, sport, environment, education and infrastructure. Fellow Australian cities, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth all made it into the top 10.
Melbourne was also recently ranked the world’s friendliest city by Conde Nast Traveller magazine. Described as the “Capital of Cool”, Melbourne is praised for having amazing nightlife, food and hotels, but also great parks, public transport and people with a good sense of humour.
Expat’s head office is located in the “Capital of Cool” and our staff love Melbourne for the wide variety of sporting and cultural events, the delicious food to be found down some of the cities hidden laneways, exceptional coffee and the city’s famous (infamous) unpredictable weather. Whether you are coming for business, leisure or for a longer stay, we encourage you to contact our relocation and visa services teams to streamline your move to Australia.
