Perth Ranked Second Most Liveable City In Australia

Perth are big movers in the Life in Australia survey for 2019.

In a recent survey on liveability and community values by realestate.com.au and Ipsos found Perth, with a liveability index of 62 – just being edged out by our nation’s capital with 62.3.

Each city is ranked on by the Life in Australia Index which takes into consideration feeling safe, health services, affordable housing, job prospects, education, natural environment access, public transport and more.

It shouldn’t really come as that much of a surprise as Perth has been kicking goals over the last year – tipped as top travel destination by Forbes for 2019, award-winning beaches, direct flights into Europe, the Hemsworth effect and much more.

But it’s under the surface of all this great exposure and kicking goal – Perth locals have responded with a positive uptick in their communities compared to previous years.
