What it costs to live in Melbourne’s top suburbs for wellbeing

The Melbourne suburbs with the highest levels of wellbeing offer access to nature or proximity to the city centre, but moving there will usually cost more than the city’s median house price.

The Melbourne City Council area, Nillumbik shire, Yarra, Port Phillip and the Yarra Ranges local government areas had the highest scores in Victoria in the 2023 Cities and Regions Wellbeing Index by SGS Economics & Planning.
