When it comes to liveable Australian cities, it’s hard to beat Melbourne. With some of the best coffee, bars, food and art on your doorstep, it’s truly a cultural mecca for young and old.

From the vibrant city centre and bohemian buzz of Fitzroy to the relaxed St. Kilda, there’s something for everyone. This extends to the property market too, with Melbourne offering a great mix of brand new apartment complexes and older fixer-uppers.

There’s plenty of great opportunities for first-time homeowners too, with the median unit price being $420,000, according to That’s compared to $950,000 for Sydney, a capital city of similar size.

It’s no surprise then that Melbourne has a large population of young professionals, with data from CoreLogic showing that the predominant age group is 20-29.
