The Property Council of Australia has named our fair city as the 6th most liveable in Australia.

Although we beat Sydney with a score of 62.9, Newcastle still has some work to do. While respondents of the Property Council’s survey revealed they were more than satisfied with the activities and recreational services Newcastle offered, they were disappointed with the city’s cleanliness, pollution levels and housing affordability.


So what do you think? Is Newcastle a better city to live in than Sydney and what can be done to improve our Novocastrian lifestyles? Tell us in the comment section below.
