Sydney ranked as one of world’s most liveable cities

By Louise Morrin

There's already no shortage of reasons to move to property in Bexley, but one more has just been added to the list. Sydney has once again been named as one of the most liveable cities in the world, this time by global affairs magazine Monocle.

Sydney has ranked in fifth place in the 2015 listings, which marks a six-place improvement on last year. As a result, it now places higher than Stockholm, Vancouver, Helsinki Munich and Zurich, which occupy the rest of the top 10.

A number of factors worked in Sydney's favour this year, including its low rate of unemployment and commitment to recycling. Interestingly, the city also ranked highly for its provision of public swimming pools!

Lord mayor Clover Moore said this latest result is testament to just how popular Sydney is, and that it's gaining a status as a truly global city.

"The quality of life we are creating in Sydney by investing in parks, playgrounds and opens spaces; supporting creativity and cultural; encouraging innovation; and delivering public and private developments with excellent design, is amongst the world's best," Ms Moore noted.

"This is not only good for Sydney residents, but good for business as we know that a city with a high quality of life attracts investment and a talented workforce."

Sydney was one of two Australian locations to have ranked in AT Kearney's 2014 Global Cities Index and Emerging Cities Outlook. It took 14th position, which was 11 places ahead of Melbourne.

A number of different aspects of the cities were used to compile the list including levels of business activity, cultural experiences, political engagement and the exchange of information. Sydney was identified as the most popular city in the world to study in.
