Sydney may have a beautiful harbour and lovely beaches, but lacked the liveability factor. On the other hand, Melbourne left me wanting more. The city is branded as being the food, culture, park and education capital of Australia for a good reason. Overall, life is less hectic, budgets stretch further and it offers a better standard of living.
Melbourne is an awesome place to live. I moved here for a year in 2016 and it quickly became a home away from home.
