Not the most liveable suburb

16 Jan 2012

Melbourne might be the most liveable city in the world, but within it, Southbank has been listed the 69th most liveable suburb.

The study was run by the Melbourne Weekly, ranked suburbs against selected criteria that included traffic, access to public transport, access to schooling, open space and crime level.

The survey admits its own flaws however, suggesting it takes into account distance rather than time when assessing proximity to schools and transport.

Perhaps that explains the surprising result of the highest possible rating of five for Southbank’s access to schools.

Other interesting points for Southbank include our flawed crime-rate rating, and open space scored just one out of five.

We don’t have to look to far to find he number one-ranked suburb, with the survey ranking South Yarra as Melbourne’s top suburb. Down the other end of the scale was Hallam, coming in last as 314th ranked suburb.
