Public transport access is likewise very limited. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin, Gold Coast. “A big challenge about liveability is how we start getting that community infrastructure in place in the outer suburbs in these high-growth areas like Wyndham and Casey – which is really where most of the population’s going right now.” Professor Grodach said. Previously the better ranking of the two Malverns, Malvern East has dropped behind its sibling, albeit only by one place. In most other areas the suburb rates below average, most notably in the retail, cafes, open space and walkability categories. Chadstone would benefit from more schools, open space and public transport. Altona’s overall ranking is let down by poor scores in topographic variation, walkability and tree cover. Kingsbury is a relatively small suburb bordering Reservoir 12 kilometres north-east of the CBD. Cafes are also a strength. Located between Burwood and Ashburton (hence the name), Ashwood rates most favourably for education, retail and topographic variation. Laverton is a relatively small suburb bordering Williams Landing. What it is most in need of most is public transport (particularly a train station), and a better employment rate. For example, if a suburb without many cafes had access to lots of them in surrounding suburbs, its cafe provision score was adjusted accordingly. Southbank is a densely populated suburb with a population of over 18,000. For the third time, South Yarra has taken top spot as Melbourne's most liveable suburb. Greater congestion is partly to blame for Elsternwick’s lower rank than in the past. This map shows the most disadvantaged areas of Melbourne in red, and the most advantaged areas in blue. Do you want to move to a new location, but are struggling to choose from the dozens of possible suburbs? Other areas the suburb rates well for are buses, tree cover and topographic variation. Have you taken the quiz to find your ideal suburb? Congestion on the roads is also minimal here. The St Kilda beach attracts large numbers of water sport enthusiasts all-year round. Ivanhoe East has entered the top 50 largely because of its crime rate – second lowest in Melbourne for the purposes of this study. Its No.1 ranking was no surprise to resident Jessica Gourley. The suburb would also benefit from more schools, more tree cover, improved topographic variation and better walkability. Templestowe Lower records very positive scores in some areas but poor ones in others. Higher scores for proximity to schools, tree cover and walkability would also help Keilor’s ranking. Where West Footscray scores the worst is education, cafes and topographic variation. The suburb records other decent to high scores for retail, cafes, buses, education and walkability. Masterplanned Taylor Hill as yet offers little in terms of liveability, with its only positive scores in this study being in the crime rate, congestion and proximity to education categories. Once ranked in the top 10 of this list, Hampton’s liveability has taken a hit in recent years because of the increasingly congested roads and rapid improvement from other suburbs. Bundoora offers easy access to both primary and secondary schools in addition to university campuses. On the plus side, Sandhurst has a very good crime score and is ranked fifth in the open space category. This is one of the biggest entertainment precincts in Melbourne, with plenty of shopping and dining choices available. Alongside Jewish delis and cake shops, venues like the Espy and the Palais Theatre turned St Kilda into a live music hub in the 1960s and 1970s, before backpacker bars and seaside pubs kept the party going in recent years. Fitzroy predictably scores very well for all other factors it is famous for including culture, retail and cafes. Would recommend Transcorp. There have been some changes to criteria since the last study in 2015, which has seen some suburbs tumble down the rankings and others soar, while some suburbs previously measured have been deemed insufficiently urban for the purposes of the 2019 study. Ringwood North is a peaceful pocket with generous tree cover, great topographic variation, a very low crime rate (the fifth best in Melbourne) and minimally congested roads. The suburb also has decent education and great public transport, being one of only a few suburbs to rank well across trams, trains and buses. Hawthorn is a relatively sold all-rounder: it ranks in the top 50 for culture, retail, cafes, employment, tree cover and walkability, and eighth for trams.
