Australian Urban Observatory



The Australian Urban Observatory is a digital platform that transforms complex urban data into easily understood liveability maps across Australia’s 21 largest cities. The Observatory draws on over 8 years of policy-relevant research by the Healthy Liveable Cities Group.

The Observatory maps key liveability indicators found to be associated with health and wellbeing, and provides a clear understanding of the liveability of cities. The Observatory provides information and understanding to support resource allocation, future policy action and support to create equitable, healthy and liveable places.

RMIT has created the platform to share the knowledge gained through research with residents and decision makers to improve health and liveability across communities.
