I'm thinking of moving to New Zealand or Australia for 6 months or a year... I'm looking for an urban place. I don't want a car--I want to be able to walk or take public transit everywhere. I'd love to live right in the centre of it all, be able to take in movies or theatre regularly, walk the dog at the beach, go to coffee shops & shopping, etc... I'm looking for somewhere with tons of art and culture.
What place would be the best for me?

Melbourne sounds like the perfect city for you, its urban, you should be able to use public transport for most things, there are plenty of movies and theatres, Melbourne doesnt really have any great beaches, especially for swimming but seeing as you just want to walk your dog then St Kilda beach would be fine for that... unless of course theres restrictions for that type of thing, there are heaps of coffee shops and stacks of art and culture. Melbourne is considered to be the arts capital of Australia aswel as things like fashion and i forget what els haha
yea melbourne's basically the best place to live and if u want a good beach you can always go to geelong beach which is reasonably close
