It 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.
Warrnambool beat all comers with a score of 68.7, rating particularly highly for access to natural environment, lack of traffic congestion, access to sports and recreation and feeling safe.
Inner Perth ranked second with a score of 68.6 and Adelaide’s Centrals/Hills regional (67).
Melbourne’s Inner South (65) and Inner East (64.9) were Melbourne’s highest scoring regions.
Ballarat (62.6) was Victoria’s second-top team.
Warrnambool mayor Tony Herbert told Kate Stevenson and Stephen Quartermain, filling in on 3AW Breakfast this week, that he’s not surprised the city is recognised as a top spot to live.
