      Proper summers
      The fabulous southern beaches
      The seaview from our house in Hallett Cove - million dollar views
      General friendliness - shop workers, colleagues etc
      The quality of medical care/doctors - just excellent

      Mozzies - irritating
      Flies - disgusting
      Bad drivers - don't get me started!
      Lack of double glazing and radiator central heating - boy do we need it in winter!
      Plight of the Aboriginals

      Overall, it is great. Cheers.

      People have mentioned many of the things I would say, but here is my addition:


      1) The people and social interaction with them (not just Aussies, but all migrants too)
      2) The views - sunsets, hills, parklands, cityscape.... never gets boring
      3) The variety of days out easily accessible - hiking, boating, swimming, beach, shopping, wineries, fruit picking..... the list goes on
      4) Public transport - cheap and rarely late!
      5) Cheaper gym membership than UK


      1) The price of doing up a home
      2) Have to say it again... insulation!
      3) Ants!
      4) Not being able to dump rubbish for free
      5) Cost of broadband/ telephones
      COMPUTER PROBLEMS? PM for cheap rates, no fix = no fee!
