Lost Parables

Sydney and Melbourne
The two largest cities in the country of Australia. And the continent of Australia (Nah, man...it’s called Meganesia) Mega what? (The continent is called Meganesia, man) Oh, ok. So yeah, the two largest cities on that continent...uh, and Oceania for that matter

However, Sydney’s (5.2 million) metropolitan area is slightly bigger than Melbourne’s (5 million)

The two cities are about 878 km or 546 miles from each other...about a 9-hour, fairly boring drive. Sydney is the capital of the state of New South Wales. Melbourne, the capital of the state of Victoria. Both are iconic, cosmopolitan, global cities, but tourists often have a difficult time deciding which one to visit. Well hopefully this video will help them choose.

According to the most recent Global Liveability Index, put out by The Economist each year, Melbourne is the second most liveable city in the world. Woah, good job, Melbourne. But Sydney’s not far behind. It’s the fifth. Hold up, Australia’s got three cities in the top 10? Geez. Maybe one reason why Melbourne is higher up on that list is because it’s cheaper to live there than in Sydney. It’s true. Just about everything is more expensive in Sydney.

As I said earlier, Sydney has a larger population, but Melbourne has been growing at a faster rate. At the current rates IT will be Australia’s largest city in about 20 to 30 years. More than 40% of all of Australia’s population lives in either the Sydney metro area or the Melbourne metro area. Despite being smaller, Melbourne has a much higher population density. Sydney does seem to have a faster pace about it. And it has more traffic.

Sydney is more culturally diverse. 43% of Sydney residents were born in another country, compared with 36% of Melbourne residents.
