You are all going to think i'm totally stupid!

We fly out on 22nd November for 12 days to activate our visa and i can't wait, is there anything in particular that i should find out while i'm there?
Obviously we are going to look around different area's and find out about plumbing regulations for hubbie.
We are staying in Aldinga Beach which is quite funny cos we were planning to live north of Adelaide but we've got a house to sell before i can think that far ahead, i don't want to build my hopes again for some arse to destroy them.
Sorry for rambling on, any advice is greatly appreciated.
