Melbourne has outperformed 139 of the world’s major cities to be voted the world’s most liveable city for the fourth year in a row.

Melbourne topped  the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index (EIU), which is the world’ most widely accepted ranking of liveability.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said Melbourne excelled in the five criteria: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

“To be named the world’ most liveable city for four consecutive years is a great honour and a testament to the enviable lifestyle that Melbourne offers,” the Lord Mayor said.

“Melbourne brings together commerce, education, health, sport, cultural and residential areas, all of which can be accessed by foot, on bike, in cars or on public transport.”

Melbourne has also recently been named:

  • the world’s friendliest city (alongside Auckland) by Conde Nast Traveller Friendliest Cities Survey
  • third in the Monocle Quality of Life Survey 2014, following Copenhagen and Tokyo
  • Winner of the C40 Siemens City Climate Leadership Award for the built environment, beating New York City and Berlin for retrofitting commercial buildings and
  • the Most Admired Knowledge City (MAKC) for the third time, at the sixth Knowledge Cities World Summit
