Benchmarking Melbourne Report

Shaping Melbourne’s Future

March 02, 2023

The 2023 report highlights that Melbourne continues to offer residents and visitors compelling experiences. Kicking off the year with the record-breaking crowds at the Australian Open, we have the Fashion Festival, Food and Wine Festival, Flower and Garden Show, Grand Prix, Spring Racing, and the AFL amongst many others, to look forward to in 2023!

As Melbourne heads towards a population of 6 million by 2031, the prosperity of the city in the long-term requires grappling with a growth model involving expanding suburbs with a strong CBD. This has resulted in unequal distribution of green spaces, access to public transport, walkable restaurants and amenities and risks undermining the liveability and reputation of the city.

Benchmarking Melbourne Report 2023 is an independently commissioned report by the Committee for Melbourne, produced by the Business of Cities and powered by JLL.
