The World's Seventh Most Liveable City in the World is Perth!


Perth remains one of the most liveable cities in the world scoring 95.9 in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2017 Global Liveability Ranking. 

Foodies, investors, sun-lovers, entrepreneurs, creatives and locals watch as the city finds its wow factor with unprecedented investment in this freshly cosmopolitan capital.


For the second year running that Perth has been ranked seventh on the five major indicators used: infrastructure, health, stability, culture and environment, and education.

The Western Australian capital achieved a perfect score in infrastructure, education and healthcare, and an average mark of 95.9 out of 100 across all indicators. For stability, Perth scored 95 out of 100, on an equal par with Melbourne, while the city performed worst on culture and environment, scoring 88.7. This category takes into account a city’s climate, corruption and social or religious restrictions, as well as the availability of sport and culture, food and drink and consumer goods and services.

Aside from Melbourne and Perth, one other Australian city ranked in the top 10 overall, with Adelaide scoring 96.6. The top ten cities remain unchanged from 2016 with Vienna and Vancouver rounding out the top three and Adelaide and Perth placing fifth and seventh respectively.
