Warrnambool named Australia’s most liveable region


It's official, the south-west is the best place to live: 

Warrnambool top-scored in Ipsos’s annual Life in Metropolitan and Regional Australia report, which ranks Australia’s region’s based on a survey of 10,000 residents.

Our picturesque city scored highest in both the metropolitan and regional rankings with 68.7 out of 100 on the livability index, narrowly beating inner-Perth in the annual study, which ranks areas across 17 factors (inner Perth ranked second with a score of 68.6 and Adelaide’s Centrals/Hills regional scored 67).

Warrnambool's high scores in the attributes of access to nature, feeling safe, a sense of community and a lack of traffic congestion helped our area score so highly.

We have always known the south-west is the best place in Australia, this new poll has confirmed it.
