    Sydney Voted No1 City

    SYDNEY has beaten Paris and New York to be voted the world's number one city by readers of a luxury travel magazine. The Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards, held today in New York, voted the harbour city their favourite spot. New South Wales Tourism Minister George Souris said it was the second major international award for Sydney, which was named the world's best festival and major events city by the International Festival and Events Association last week. "Winning this latest award demonstrates Sydney's position as a world leading destination and the gateway to Australia," Mr Souris said today. "It's a vote of confidence not by travel writers or agents, but by ordinary travellers. "By definition, this makes us Australia's leading tourism and events city and will help the Government in its quest to restore NSW to its position as the nations premiere state." More than eight million votes were cast in the awards with readers rating cities according to ambience, friendliness, lodging, restaurants, culture, sight-seeing and shopping. The readers of Conde Nast Traveler gave Sydney a score of 85.1, ahead of the next highest scoring city, Florence at 85.

  3. A friend of mine posted this on another site, makes great reading.:wink: Melbourne has trumped Vancouver to become the best city in the world in which to live, according to the latest Economist Intelligence Unit's Global Liveability Survey. In a ranking of 140 cities around the world, Melbourne was given a score of 97.5 per cent. Other Australian cities in the top 10 are Sydney (96.1 per cent), which ranked sixth best, up from seventh a year ago, and Perth and Adelaide (95.9 per cent), which were unchanged in joint eighth position "Australia, with a low population density and relatively low crime rates, continues to supply some of the world's most liveable cities," said Jon Copestake, editor of the survey. Vancouver's score slipped after a lower rating for infrastructure. Residents of Perth boasted the strongest purchasing power in Australia, aided by the fattest pay packets in the land. On the skids Not surprisingly, the debt-ridden eurozone countries ranked poorly in the liveability rankings. Greece's capital Athens dropped from 62 to 67th. That ranking put it below Uruguay's capital, Montevideo. Civil unrest in the Middle East has also contributed to a low score in cities of that region, with Tripoli in Libya diving to 135. The Economist Intelligence Unit surveys 140 locations around the world to assess the best or the worst living conditions. In a statement accompanying today's release, the unit said the survey's original purpose had been to supply guidelines to human resources departments worldwide as to when they should provide hardship allowances as part of expatriate relocation packages. "It has since evolved as a broad benchmarking tool used by city councils, organisations or corporate entities looking to test locations against one another," it said in a statement.
