Adelaide has been ranked among the top 10 healthiest cities in the world.

The southern capital was ranked as the eighth healthiest city on the planet by online home rental platform, Spotahome, while Amsterdam, Netherlands, took top spot, followed by Oslo in Norway.

Adelaide and Perth which came in at 10th spot were the only cities outside of Europe to make it to the top 10.

Spotahome ranked a total of 80 cities across the world based on 10 health-related criteria including annual sunshine hours, life expectancy, work-life balance, air and water quality and annual holidays.

Adelaide scored 6.31 out of 10.

Earlier this year The Economist ranked Adelaide as the world’s fifth most liveable city for the sixth time in a row.
