That would be Darwin, for reasons that we assume are related to zombies disliking humidity. Followed by Melbourne and then Sydney. Which kind of makes sense in the whole Melbourne is way better than Sydney consensus currently doing the rounds. This news comes after Xbox Australia teamed up with Melbourne University’s Centre for Disease Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) to create the Zombie Survival Index for ANZ.
More than just a guess, the study was pretty detailed with the ZSI rankings compiled taking into account "the potential rate of zombie infection, situational analysis of the infection’s origin, how the disease would spread, how residents claim they would act, and how well each city would defend themselves against the walking dead and geographical location".
Some fun facts:
Melbournians would be most likely to tackle the problem together; seeing higher chances of survival as part of a large group
Family matters most in Hobart, with 40 per cent choosing to stick with their family over other survivors
A lack of food and water would be our biggest concern (50 per cent), with over half the Queensland population identifying this as their biggest worry
Aussies ages 45 and above were 19 per cent more likely to go it alone than those younger than them
Darwin would be the most inviting city, with 50 per cent of residents willing to let a stranger into their home for protection, compared to just 19 per cent in Adelaide
Nearly one in five (17 per cent) would attempt to dress/act like a zombie to avoid detection and infection, while 3 per cent would hide under the bed
A hospital was deemed the preferred shelter for most of the population (31 per cent).
