The rationale given by prospective migrants who view Australian cities as offering a better quality of life than British cities appears to have been vindicated by a recent British study. Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane have all been named in the top 20 Cities in the World to live in according to the most recent Liveability Survey conducted by the publishers of the Economist.
Taking into account stability, health care, environment, infrastructure, education and culture, the annual survey assesses 140 cities worldwide and gives each city a final rating out of 100.
Auckland and Wellington came in 12th and 23rd respectively. Only two British Cities made the list of 140; Manchester and London. But both were well outside the top twenty.
