Melbourne vs. Sydney

Its the age old debate… Melbourne or Sydney?

For those of you considering moving to either of these cities, its always a good idea to weigh the pros and cons of each location.

Sydney is Australia’s biggest city, known best for its good weather and lengthy summers. Despite being a metropolitan city, you’ll never be far from nature; its surrounded by numerous national parks and a plethora of beaches.

On the other hand, Melbourne is Australia’s sweetheart. With an outstanding café culture, balanced perfectly with a thriving art scene, its easy to see why this laid-back city is regularly ranked amongst the most liveable cities in the world.

Despite all the different factors that come into play when making a decision, the cost of living would definitely be one of the indisputable deciding factors. With data gathered from Numbeo, we made a nifty little infographic to provide a quick overview.
