    Most of the top suburbs listed are just the up market ones, but not places id ever want to live. IMO if you want places like that, you're missing out on all the great stuff about Melbourne and might as well just move to the north shore of sydney or something

    So Frankston North is apparently 100 places better on the list than Frankston South?!

    Huh??

    Pretty happy about the list - bit self-serving. That said, the list is also silly because it disregards price, and doesn't take into account:

    - the fact that a median house in East Melbourne is 1/20th the size of a house in Frankston
    - the median house in East Melbourne is 6x the price of a house in Frankston

    Things like this are impossible to rank, it's too subjective.

    I'd rather live in Fitzroy or Carlton than East Melbourne.

    I'd rather live in Brunswick than Brunswick West.

    But the people who made this list obviously disagree. Who's to say who's right and who's wrong? It's impossible.

    Well spotted :p
    I remember seeing such list for Sydney a while back which had inconsistencies like these too.

    Happy my Elwood beats our neighbour Brighton for liveability :)

    But tiny Gardenvale at number at 17 while across road Brighton East is only 68? HUH? Yeah these results are a bit dubious.

    Ha, apparently Melton (and the suburbs within) and Rock Bank (and probably others) aren't suburbs of Melbourne......

    I didn't notice Melton wasn't there. But Caroline Springs and Taylors Hill are there and they are technically part of the Shire of Melton.

    The more I look at this list the more I realise how ridiculous it is.

    I found Diamond Creek and Hurstbridge where there but Wattle Glen which is the suburb directly in between these two suburbs wasn't list.

    Also it talks about access to cafes and sea which not everyone wants... I would rather live in Templestowe (154) than live in Frankston North (136)

    Don't get me started.

    Caroline Springs (313) and Taylors Hill (314) compared to:

    253 - St Albans (only 1 spot "worse" than Tullamarine, really? I used to live in St Albans, I can judge all I like :p)

    232 - Dandenong!

    217 - Coolaroo!

    188 - Broadmeadows!

    185 - Ringwood


    Coburg all the way down at 150, yet Sunshine makes the top 100. :confused:


    There's no rhyme or reason to it.
