Accommodation: Boomerang House in Christies beach, from Homesdownunder (Tamara on this site). It was ideal - clean, big enough for 3 adults and 2 kids comfortably and most importantly in a terrific area to explore from! Thank you Tamara!
Things we did: Kite festival at Semaphore, explored endless suburbs - changing our mind over our favourite many times, visited a primary school, made friends and went to their house for a bbq, snorkelled at Noarlunga reef, beached it nearly every day, ate lots of squid, fed kangaroos at a wildlife park, swam with a sting ray (unknowingly at first), met with a specialist recruiter in my field, fell in love with the place!
Summary: Although I liked the CBD, we felt a lot more at home in the southern suburbs and have decided almost exactly where we'd like to stay (somewhere in the Port Noarlunga - Moana stretch). We were even more enamoured with the place than we expected and I genuinely cannot wait to make the move now!
