Big 7 asked their social audience of 1.5 million people “where you would find the friendliest cities and towns in Australia?”

This was then in relation to how easy the city is to navigate or strangers helping you find your way, to making new best friends in a local bar, these are the cities and towns across Australia where you’ll be made to feel the most welcome.

Perhaps they should have included friendliness when driving as a question – in which case maybe we wouldn’t have ranked so high.

None the less if this does come as a shock to you, perhaps we are just too close to it and the experience of travelers to WA and more specifically Perth is one of a fun and friendly experience.

Either way it is always great to beat Melbourne (6) and of course, Adelaide (4) – not to mention Sydney didn’t even crack a mention in the top 25. That’s no surprise really.
