The Herald reported:
Auckland has maintained its position as the world’s third most liveable city according to the annual Mercer Quality of Living survey.
The City of Sails ranks behind only Vienna and Zurich, and ahead of Sydney (10th), Wellington (13th), Melbourne (17th) and Perth (21st).
I love Vienna. I’d put it first also.
The results means Auckland is in the top 10 in all three major international quality of life surveys, coming 9th in the Monocle magazine list and 10th in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s.
Auckland has a lot of positives. They just need more land, so house prices can come down.
