Greens MP Adam Bandt has hailed Melbourne's securing of the title of the world's most liveable city, saying it deserves the top spot.
But Mr Bandt cautioned that big investments in public transport, other infrastructure and greening the city were needed if Melbourne was going to stay in front.
Melbourne claimed the title of the world's most liveable city in the Economist Intelligence Unit's latest survey, beating Vancouver.
"Melbourne deserves top spot", Mr Bandt said.
"There is no city in the world I would rather live in."
