The best and worst suburbs in Australia
Australia’s most liveable city is Melbourne, the best paid are living in Australia's Sydney. The most jobs are in Queensland, Western Australia is the place to looks for education while South Australia is where soul is - its the ‘Good Samaritan’ state with the largest volunteering rates in the country.
The BankWest Quality of Life Index, released recently, indicates that 21 of Australia’s 25 most liveable areas are in our urban suburbs and not in the coastal towns, so much for the old ‘sea-change’ and ‘tree-change’ dream.
“Clearly many Australians citizens want to live on the coast or the countryside, but the facts are that the best life quality in Australia is to be found in the normal suburbs, particularly in Sydney’s north, also Melbourne’s east and surprisingly western Perth,” the BankWest Retail Chief Executive mentions.
Living in the suburbs of Australia’s big cities, residents often have the best quality of life with good school access, modern advanced hospitals and plenty of jobs. They also have large houses, super fast internet connections and minimal crime rates.
They were ranked against 10 key criteria (including employment levels, crime rates, internet access, health, education levels, earnings, home ownership rates, house size, proportion of empty homes and community involvement)
The lucky residents of the suburb of Ku-ring-gai in Sydney’s northern suburbs have stood out with the highest quality of life in Australia, closely followed by Hunter’s Hill dwellers in Sydney and Nillumbik in Melbourne.
Not so good for the people of Halls Creek in Western Australia where they have achieved the lowest quality of life ranking in Australia.
