Do anyone have any checklist of things to cary while moving to Adelaide?
We will be moving to Adelaide mid March - April next year and would love to be part of your network group.
It is a very exciting but daunting time and its great to have the support of others in the same
It would also be good to get the children in contact with others too as they are keen to make friends.
We are potentially looking at the Seaview Downs area for properties, the schools also look really nice around there.
Does anyone else know much about this area or have any advice on the best areas for families / schools etc?
Look forward to chatting with you all,

Any reviews on Black Forest and Glandor suburbs - schools and lifestyle and which one is better.... I checked Glenelg but it too far from city.
Hello everyone, Nice to see many of'em moving to Adelaide during early 2015. We (I, Wife & 2 yr old) would be migrating here by feb/mar 2015 too. It would be good to catch up then. Our research is in progress and Glenelg seems to suit us. Any information/links on Homes, IT/ICT Jobs in/around CBD and primary schools would be highly appreciated.
There are many links for home - download apps for domain and real estate also check rent form here, for buying stuff log on to gumtree and visit woolworths site. NOW. Jobs you have to have 2 referrals for that logon to LinkedIn and start talking to people to refer you. What in IT you do as I am in Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery.
