Melbourne ranked the world's greatest city - again

Third time in a row. No surprise, really.

Four Australian cities in the top ten.

Three Canadian.

One from New Zealand.

United States nowhere to be seen.

Melbourne ranked world's most liveable city - again

Guillermo Del Toro ranks Toronto as the #1 most livable city. I think that's more legit

You should all come here, if you haven't and get the chance, it is quite a good city, and not really full of people like me. I'd happy to show y'all around, though.

I'll leave the onesie at home, but there is a dude who dresses in a rabbit costume and plays bass guitar on Swanston St on Friday nights.

As safe as houses is the city, even at 3am on a Sunday morn. Stunningly beautiful and the 6 months that I lived in the CBD itself were the finest months of my life. Complimented by exceptional surrounding pockets such as Chapel St and Carlton.

Now to heritage list the entire rectangle itself. No need or any further developments and demolitions, leave it as it is. Only refurbishments allowed.

All the sport, music and festivities that you could dream of.

Yeah I've gotta say, I'm yet to see a single fight in the CBD, although obviously there's been quite a few.

I thought New York City was the greatest city in the world?

But seriously, this is very cool. Puts Australia even higher on my "must visit" list.

As a staunch New South Welshman, and even with my innate, genetic hatred of all things 'Mexican' (ie, from south of the border), I have to say, Melbourne is easily Australia's best capital. It makes Sydney look like a retarded mutant baby. Put Melbourne where Newcastle or Coolangatta are, and you would have undoubtedly the worlds greatest city. Needs a swimmable beach and better weather.

Went a few weeks ago for a work conference, love the place.

This is why I got the fuck out of Queensland and moved to Melbourne. Fucking awesome city.

No, because then you'd have awful humid, hot weather. At least we have a tolerable dry heat down here. Coolangatta's climate is close to the worst thing in the world and Newcastle's is little better.

It's a cool city. A bit expensive for my taste, but not bad, not bad at all.
