Adelaide kind of chose us.
I'm glad it did after living here 7 years.
I've only visited Melbourne so far and have no idea what Perth is like apart from it is very isolated and property is more expensive.
Adelaide still has a small town feel to it in parts which is a huge plus for us.:D
DiveSamGrevett - apologies for that think it was my post that caused the problem not yours - seems I confirmed what your business partner said anyway though - that suits us though as at least we have the sun here! - seems I just stirred some people up and didn't mean to was just trying to answer the question - Best of luck with your reccie - like I said have fun where ever you choose - Thank you Tyke for bringing it back to the original question :-)

I am going on a a sir 495 visa ( I hope ) and so am restricted to regional visa and Adelaide is one of the few larger cities classed as regional, given the choice I dont have, I would not choose Perth as I prefer the climate, less humidity, cooler winters of the South. Although I was dissapointed not to have the choice of living anywhere in Australia at first, the more reserch I have done the more I am convinced that the Adelaide area is the place for me, after 2 years I will be able to move to another state if I want to but am expecting to stay for good. :)
Glad that all got back to sensible replies!
These forums are great. Really helpful. Thanks for all your feedback.
We are waiting for a case number and so haven't yet booked our police checks or medicals. Been at this since the end of January. It's never ending!! I guess that's one way of proving you're serious.
