Glad to hear you will be joining us, even if it is just for a vist just now.
You can borrow my car if you want but if I get a job before then, well I'll have to call all bets off, but should know before you fly out and I can get seats for you arriving if you want and you can leave them with us.
Also there is a bed here if you want it, the kids have a double bunk, which is a double bed at the bottom and a single at the top, which we laid on the floor when we had younger kids staying, it could be a solution when you come and visit your bar!
Take care and see you soon.
I'll let the bar know you're on your way, so that it can prepare itself!!!

:)Ah-ha there you are , starting to think you had disappeared...!!!!, i recon it would be better to come for 2 weeks which works out at ten days here, which is loads of time to get about and have a good look aroung, and then spend the money on car hire....??, to come for 3 weeks would be great but if its only to validate your visa you dont want to be spending too much. The transport is good but there is loads to see and do and it would make it heaps easer with a car at your disposal. Just for the record the rental you are looking at is Fantastic as we stayed there on our reccie and some friends are there at the moment and love it too. Good luck cheers Graham
awww you guys all are just so GREAT!!!!!!!
i knew there was a reason why we'd go to adelaide!!!!!
for what size/age would that carseat be?!?! mine are not babies anymore - ds is a big 4.5yr and dd is a small 3yr
NEXT QUESTION: is there a place online i can look into carseats to buy?!?!
we might take that offered bed - so that's one night sorted!!
ohhhh your car?! - well, i guess we don't have to rent one just now - but thanks for that great offer!!!
although i have to say i'd rather have you get a job!!!
for the sole reason of course that the bar will be better stocked :p
yes, i tend to agree that a car is quite necessary so we'll see how long we can afford to stay!
how on earth do you know which rental i am researching?!?!?!?!
Hmm, our old car seat would probably be just about ok for a child up to about three or so. I think it's for children up to 18kg. The offer's there anyway and even if you don't want it the storage offer still stands!

Hi there - welcome back!
Toys r us here are a good place to look online but they are not the cheapest. Ruby has just come in wants a pirate on here so this is for her :jimlad:
We had a baby seat for Kenya when we arrived - she was 18mths then and we brought a booster for Ruby who is 5.5 now. They are both in the booster seats now and I think you can get them for about $40 upwards, unless you want branded ones - Hi5 or Shrek or whatever - they are about $80. But they are worth getting because they stay in them for quite a few years, but I am not sure what the actual law is but everyone I know with kids Ruby's age, are still in booster seats.
Public transport is quite good - from Noarlunga you can get the train into the city (and obviously all stops enroute) - takes about 35 mins and cost $2.60 each way. Buses are pretty good and there is a bus station in Noarlunga too.
Hope this helps - BTW there are heaps of folk who will store car seats and anything you don't want to take back to the UK so you have more baggage allowance when you come out for real - we have been known to store the odd box or two!
Forgot to mention that there is a place in Brighton who sell second hand cars and he also hires car out - Brian Threadgold - we know quite a few people who have hired from and when you buy a car from him, he knocks you rental off the price (obviously he is not doing you too much of a favour) but it might be a cheaper option. I think he charged a friend of ours about $22 per day for a rental, let me know if you want me to put a phone call into him.

thanks LIZ for the websites! BigW had quite some reasonable ones - will investigate further!!
Sarah mine will be 3 and 4.5 when we come around - so you are saying a booster seat for each would be fine?!? - well, the fewer expenses the better for us
with all the storage offered i really should take our double allowance and store everything in oz already!! just a shame that i need most
i will let you know in regards to the carhire - i'll give that some more thought and it's still early days for that!
thanks for the offer
