Sydney the best City in the world to live, global survey finds
Sydney has been named the best city in the world to live, by a survey conducted by Brand Finance. Melbourne also performed well in the index, ranking as the 16th best global city overall, and 4th for liveability.
Presented by brand evaluation consultancy Brand Finance, the ranking is based on a global survey of close to 15,000 members of the public conducted in April 2023 in 20 countries on all continents to measure perceptions of the world’s top 100 cities.
While Sydney topped the list of best cities to live, its position in other fields put it at fifth overall.
Sydney solidifies its status as a top destination for living, working, and studying by securing 5th place overall in the newly published Brand Finance City Index,” MD, Brand Finance Australia, Mark Crowe, said.
“With its stunning natural beauty, beautiful beaches, and iconic harbour, Sydney has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most desirable cities to live. As such, it ranks 1st globally in this dimension. Sydney is also considered a top location for retirement, and thus ranks 2nd in this dimension. The city is attractive to retirees for several reasons, offering a diverse range of cultural and recreational activities, as well as a well-regarded healthcare system and excellent medical facilities. Unsurprisingly, sunny Sydney also ranks 3rd globally for its great weather.”
Perth emerged as a hidden jewel in the Brand Finance City Index. While it ranked 52nd overall, the West Coast capital sits at 16th for liveability and 11th for nice weather
