Australian cities are also internationally recognised among the most livable in the world. A 2008 study conducted by Mercer Human Resource Consulting found that Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane were among the best cities in the world to live in, ahead of London, Paris, Singapore, Tokyo and New York.

Australia has more than just fantastic cities. It has a regional lifestyle which attracts scores of individuals.
