Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria and home to 19.05% of Australia’s population, making it the second most populated state after Sydney in the country. Known for having 4 seasons in one day, Melbourne has also been named by The Economist Intelligence Unit as the world’s most liveable city for 7 consecutive years.

It’s important to take into consideration that this list focused on the suburbs closest to the Melbourne CBD and whilst certain suburbs may not have made the list, it does not mean that they necessarily had a large number of burglaries in 2016.

Whilst Melbourne may be the most liveable city, it does not mean that it is free from crime and completely safe. As with all cities globally, crime exists and there are suburbs that have higher levels of crime than others.
