It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and so if you see a photo of Sydney, you immediately realize that it must be an incredible city to live in. The Mercer 2015 Quality of Living Survey confirms this common impression, declaring Sydney the best place to live in Australia and the #10 top city in the world for quality of life. Researchers at the respected Mercer international human resources (HR) firm evaluate 230 cities around the globe each year, assessing them based on such “quality of life” factors as climate, crime, ease of communication, health, infrastructure, political stability, transportation, and water sanitation. For the second year in a row, the experts at Mercer examined Sydney and proclaimed this magnificent metropolis as having the 10th highest standard of living on Earth.
This honor comes as no surprise to the 4.8 million residents of Sydney. Almost everywhere one looks in this amazing Australian city, there is a breathtaking view of spectacular Sydney Harbor. Most people who live in Sydney are within minutes of one of its 100 beautiful beaches, scenic parks and countless shopping venues. Outdoor cafes, world-class restaurants, happening pubs and a vibrant night life also offer Sydney’s residents plenty of choices for relaxing with family and friends. Whether listening to music at the iconic Sydney Opera House, taking a stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens, catching a thrill ride at historic Luna Park, dining at Darling Harbor, or sunbathing at Manly Cove Beach – Sydney offers residents and visitors alike many opportunities for enjoying the good life in the “Land Down Under.” If you would like to live in Australia and experience one of the world’s best standards of living, you can learn more about your Australian immigration options by clicking HERE!
