Seriously bored here, and Sydney not much better. Prices are nuts and friendliness seems to be something from the past.

Back to the UK soon!

I am not a lemon they can squeeze endlessly till there's no juice left.

Even with 85k a year i am struggling here.

After returning to Melbourne after 10 years away, really disappointed. Small, boring place. Expensive housing, though cheaper than Syd and London. Expensive art scene with not much turn-over. Can't get a coffee after 2/3 o'clock and generally not that friendly. Potentially good to raise a family but if in the outer suburbs will have a bit of a commute. Sydney is a real city but at the cost, decided London is better.

Melbourne is overpriced and overated the city has serious crime issues the only good thing it has is the sport

Melbourne is a nice place to life I lived there for 11 months and it is a great city, Melbourne has a few small big city problems when compare with others big cities. I'm sure the score will be more if we count cultural and sports events. I met people from England, France, Brazil, Japan and Germany and they said that Melbourne and in general Australia is the best place to lived in the world.
