Perth was one of six Australian cities on the list: the cosmopolitan Sydney the highest ranked Australian city at number 10, followed by Melbourne at number 18.

Canberra, Adelaide and Brisbane all fell after Perth at 26, 32 and 36 respectively.

The 2010 Mercer Quality of Living Survey is based on 39 criteria, including political, socio-economic, environmental, health, education, and transport.

The survey covered 221 cities and compared them to New York as the base city, which was ranked in 49th position with an index score of 100.

The most liveable city in the world is Vienna, Austria, with 108.6 points, with Switzerland’s Zurich and Geneva following in second and third position respectively, the survey found.
