According to The Economist Intelligence Unit Survey, the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia has claimed the No.1 spot again for the third time in a row as the most livable city in the world.

The survey looked at 140 global cities and factor in everything from health care, education and infrastructure and the garden state’s capital came through with straight A’s (again!).

It seems like the Aussies dominated the Top 10, including Adelaide (number 5), Sydney (number 7) and Perth (number 9). That said the Canadians also did very well – see below:

That said, we are not here to talk about second or third place but rather the numero uno – the mack daddy, the city with all the right moves. Be it the gorgeous parks, awesome beaches, bustling city life, breathtaking mountains, world class sports or the extremely yummy wineries – Melbourne has it all!

For those lucky enough to have visited Melbourne will understand these merits and for those who haven’t … well, let us take you on a photographic journey of the city the whole world is talking about.

Sit back and enjoy!

Viva Melbourne!
