Melbourne is sadly. It's one of the best in the world by far but most of the drama is there. That's where you'll find most of the protests. It was the #1 city seven years in a row for a reason though. Most of the country is fine and are right leaning. Australia doesn't have far left leadership like Canada thankfully but we have our fair share of extreme lefts and extreme rights - like the USA.
I still would rather live here than any place in Europe. Only place I would move to if I was forced to would be New Zealand, Canada or the USA. Our cities are still some of the best in the world and have been for years. As long as you live in the big cities, you'll be great.
