Canberra's experts selling valuables
150,000+ buyers nationally

Adelaide thinks it’s better than us

By Barcham 4 March 2013 30

The Property Council of Australia has released its findings about which Australian cities are the most liveable.

Canberra came second, beaten by Adelaide.

Compared with other cities, Canberra performed particularly well on:
• Having a good road network and minimal traffic congestion (72% agree)
• Being a safe place for people and property (73% agree)
• Being clean, well-maintained and unpolluted (78% agree).
However, compared with other cities, Canberra performs relatively poorly in terms of:
• Being an affordable place to have a good standard of living (30% agree)
• Having a vibrant cultural entertainment scene (65% agree).

I agree with everything except the being poor at having a ‘vibrant cultural entertainment scene’. Nonsense. Sadly these results were found by interviewing Canberrans so 65% of interviewed Canberrans have never looked at our Entertainment section.

Man, Adelaide is going to be unbearable next time I see her.

if canberra had kitchener buns and something approaching handorf close by (sorry, bungendore) then we’d be even closer second. the canberra climate is a winner, though.

Adelaide has some wonderful heritage architecture. So much more interesting than pretty much anything Canberra can come up with…

However, it gets really hot and people get murdered there in interesting ways so i’ll stick to canberra.

Good to see there’s a number of croweaters among us.

Also, pie floaters. Yum!

Also, Adelaide has green waste bins.

And trains, trams, Soundwave, Womadelaide, Balfours, Fruchocs, YoYo biscuits, Kangaroo Island, cheaper everything. Need I go on??
Can’t wait to get back to a proper city to live (serial killers et al).

Live music, Pub culture, restaurants and fresh seafood (when I lived there Adelaide had the highest number of restaurants per capita anywhere in the world) Wine, Clipsal 500/Formula 1 in the old days. Food and Wine festivals, Fringe Festival ….. all these things make Adelaide a nice lifestyle place to live

Yep haven’t been there for a while but from memory the oval is slightly convex.

You’ll do well to find one that’s not. It’s called drainage.
