If you are looking for a safe, nice, welcoming, and instigating place, Melbourne is the right choice. You have the option of feeling like you are living in a small town in the suburbs, just 15 minutes away from the agitated CBD. Plenty of cultural options, jobs, education and sights to visit.
Maybe the cost of living is a little bit high, especially housing. However, you can find jobs easily, which makes life easier.
Lovely city - I wish to live here forever! We feel safe while walking in the streets; people are very educated doesn’t matter what you appear to be.
Public transport is expensive but it is extremely organised. The rent is a little bit expensive too but if found a good job, it would be perfect!

It’s such a big city with lots to do.
You can never get bored here.

You need to have many contacts so they can get you a job.

Rent, transport and food are extremely expensive.
Melbourne is a great big city to live, safe, cosmopolitan where you can find different entertainment all the time.
There is a useful public transport system, wonderful parks and fun festivals.

Anyway, it’s a marvellous place to know.
As everywhere in the world, Melbourne has some problems.
In my point of view, the whether is the worst, it changes all the time.
There are too many people of different nationalities (the majority from Asia).
The cost of living here is extremely high (school, accomodation and food).
Safe and beautiful city.
Lots of entertainment options.
Hight cost of living.
Amazing city, everything works perfectly.
Nothing to declare.
How easy it is to go from one place to another.

It’s an amazingly friendly city.
It’s harder than I thought to find a proper job.
It’s a great city, very safe, has excellent public transport and beautiful places to visit.
It’s hard to find a job, usually they don’t pay very well but it’s enough to pay the bills and survive in a moderate life in the city.
The city is very beautiful, safe, has many cultural options, lots of things to do. The high demand of the city by foreign allows you to meet people for all around the world, which is a unique experience.
I suffered a bit because I wasn’t used to the “cold” and I arrived there in the winter. The temperature drops considerable with the strong winds. The cost of living is high and getting a job is not that easy.
Melbourne has many things to offer, starting from all types of food you can find around the city, to numerous parties and festivals.
Melbourne is also the australian capital of sport as it’s home of the Formula 1, Moto GP, Super Bikes, Australian Open, Footy and Soccer.
Also all the major artists perform in Melbourne when they come to Australia, whether they’re musicians or comedians and so on…
Beaches around Melbourne are nice although it’s not the Ocean, but if you really want some real waves, Torquay and Bells Beach are really close and beautiful.
Melbourne has been nominated a few times as the ‘most liveable’ city in the world and it’s not a coincidence.
The city is pretty safe and clean.
What I would improve about Melbourne is the public transport which is already pretty good but as the population is growing, trams and trains are over crowded during peak hours.
Also would be nice some tram/train service overnight all week.
Price of public transport and the absence during the night.
The city is beautiful, nature mixed with a big city show us how it’s possible to have this balance. Parks, beaches, life quality, security. Love this place!
The city is not the cheapest in the world, but in the other hand provides you everything.
Cultural vitality away from major European cities.
Too many cars.
Expensive public transport.
Melbourne is lovely!
It was no coincidence that I’ve chosen it for the second time to study.
The people are welcoming and polite.
Safety is by far the best feature, it’s simply amazing.
Besides all that, it’s beautiful! Beautiful! And beautiful.
Ahhh and has the best coffee in the world.
Not being there now (hahaha).
Very user friendly, people are welcoming, nice and friendly. Amazing parks, everything well organised, beautiful and charming neighbourhoods.
Non stop entertainment all year round.
The winter can be too long.
Lots of rainy days.
For sure the friendliest city in the world where people respect and seek to live as best as possible, including issues of culture and infrastructure.
In parks and public beaches you may find bbq areas, efficient public transport, but what is most interesting are the bicycles of various colours and shapes.
Finding a job depends on the focus of each person, but in the end the positive thing is that usually boss / employee relationship is very good, direct and respectful.
Ps: even the bus driver waits for you to sit down to avoid falling!
Public transport, clothes and rent are expensive.
Melbourne is a welcoming city that has an incredible beauty, with friendly people, entertainment, cultural diversity and low social discrimination.
Only the cold wind of the city and places that close very early.
The city is beautiful and with lot’s of job opportunities and study options.
For those who don’t like cold weather, maybe it wouldn’t be a good idea to come to Melbourne, cos’ it’s really cold.
The best city to live.
Easy to find jobs.
Hard to deal with different cultures.
