Adelaide crowned nation's most livable city

Map: Adelaide 5000 A national survey by the Property Council of Australia has ranked Adelaide as the nation's most livable city.

More than 4,000 residents of capital cities were asked to rank the importance of 17 key attributes, including school facilities, natural environment, public transport and traffic congestion, and how their city rated on each.

Adelaide achieved an overall livability score of just over 63 per cent, slightly ahead of Canberra which came in second.

The South Australian Government was also rated as the best performing, with 54 per cent of respondents rating its performance as excellent, good or fair.

The Northern Territory government achieved the lowest ranking of just 36 per cent.

The Property Council says governments should use the survey to help provide better services.

South Australian executive director Nathan Paine says the survey will now be conducted annually.

"It's really about putting a spotlight onto Australian cities, saying that most Australians believe that we can support growth, but that population growth and economic growth has to be managed," he said.

"What we'll be doing is giving these results to the Federal Government and the state governments around the country and sitting down to talk with them about areas that need to be improved."


Least livable

Sydney polled the lowest score of just above 55 per cent.

New South Wales opposition planning minister Brad Hazzard says the Labor Government has let the residents of Australia's largest city down.

"Residents of Sydney, whether they're coming in on jam-packed trains - often not air conditioned - from the western parts of Sydney; drivers sitting in cars in traffic jams," he said.

"I think we all know that state Labor in its last 16 years has taken their eye off the infrastructure situation and we've all been left with a situation unfortunately where Sydney is slipping behind."

Having had the privelige of working in over 20 countries and having spent 10 years living O/S, Adelaide is by far the most relaxing city to live in.  Stress free traffic, even during peak times (when compared to other cities).  And the beaches are to die for, cos their empty and sandy.  Not like the pebbly, packed so called 'beaches' of britain.

I've chosen well.

The driving's pretty good too with the Adelaide Hills so nearby. (I just got back from a blast to Lobethal. :) )

20 countries, Simon?  Sheesh - that's impressive.  I've never worked anywhere other than Adelaide, I'm ashamed to say. Well, I worked at Keith also. :o

Caught up with a client visiting from Melbourne last week, she said "Adelaide is so relaxing, the pace in Melbourne is so fast with everyone stuck in traffic jams". :doh: :D

I went to Richmond today.

I got all the way from Mount eliza to swan street AND BACK without stopping once for traffic congestion.

I did take 2 short cuts when i saw traffic ahead, but I missed it all.

This included driving through frankston on the way back.



















IN MY TRUCK.



You fools that sit in traffic just need to re-plan your lives.
