Darwin scored the worst on overall liveability ranking, with Brisbane coming in 6th, Melbourne 7th, and Perth 9th of 11 cities.

Australia’s largest city, Sydney, was ranked second last.

The report asked participants to rank the relative importance of a range of their city’s attributes, including cleanliness, safety, and good healthcare and public transport, and then asked respondents whether their city exhibited those attributes.
