Brisbane residents – rejoice! New research has confirmed that Brisbane has now overtaken Melbourne in terms of liveability.

Brisbane is now the nation’s lifestyle capital with it being home to seven of the top ten most liveable suburbs in Australia. Corinda ranks sixth on the list. Other Brisbane suburbs on the list are Dutton Park (3rd), Spring Hill (4th), Kangaroo Point (5th), Indooroopilly (8th), and Fortitude Valley (10th).

The suburbs were ranked depending on ease of access to schools, beaches, CBD, parks whether by car or public transport. The findings were compiled here through their own online trends and Australian Bureau of Statistics data.

The Australia Statistical Geography Standard 2016 was used to calculate the distances within each suburb to the main lifestyle factors listed in the criteria.

Corinda boasts of well-painted parks, and is near Brisbane’s most affluent schools. The suburb’s green surroundings are also one of the things that attract people to the area. People get to have the best of everything within peaceful and quiet suburb surroundings.

Nerida Conisbee, Chief Economist for the REA Group said that it is not a surprise to see the city dominating the most liveable list.

“We’ve always known Brisbane does have so many amazing lifestyle elements to it, but this proves it,” she said. She also mentioned that one of the reasons why Melbourne dropped down on the list is due to the population growth and infrastructure bottlenecks in various areas. She also said that it’s so easy to get around Brisbane since many of the lifestyle factors are found throughout the city.
